1962 Ford Falcon Futura
I’m wondering if anyone knows if there is a 14” 4 lug steel wheel available for this car, and where they can be purchased?
Isn’t the early Falcon a 4 on 4.5 bolt pattern?I am not sure that combination is available. At the time Ford used .....
13" diameter wheels n 4 lug for six cylinder engines vehicles
14" diameter wheels n 5 lug for V8 engines vehicles
Four lug 14 inch wheels would be unique. Finding them will likely be an expensive wheel and may not look like stock if that is the look you seek.
This is where Summit gets some of their wheels
From 1960 to 1964 Falcon 5 rims were usedIsn’t the early Falcon a 4 on 4.5 bolt pattern?
Yep, that’s what I’m doing, the disk brake conversion kit. My 13’s only have an 1/8” clearance from the caliper, and that’s just setting the disk with caliper on it into the spare from the trunk…🤔My 1963 Falcon uses 1967 non-disc Mustang 14" rims which use the 3 retainer small center for the early small "bottlecap" stainless caps But they did not fit the Scarebird disc conversion setup on my '61 - the calipers hit the rims center. My 61's disc conversion uses 14" Maverick 4Lug (four retainer 10" center) rims that fit calipers and full hubcaps but not early" bottlecap" signature hubcaps. The three retainer @ 9" center does not fit any current Disc conversion sold AFAIK.
Aftermarket wheels can be ordered to fit almost any configuration and may allow offset changes for slightly larger modern tire widths.

Those look nice, I wonder what the backspace is on them?Original 4 lug 6 cylinder wheels. 14" x 4-1/2" wide. Call when you are ready to come pick them up. Need 65-67 hubcaps also? I have sets of them!westslope.craigslist.org

Yes, sorry I thought I said that. But apparently wasn’t clear…Wow, disc brakes with 4 lug hubs that will accept 13" rims. That is pretty awesome!
Stab the brake pedal and you might fly through the windshield.
If you have the six in there, what about no power boost and just manual brakes?
Would be very interested in how the system performs on the road when it is back together,
How old are those coil springs?
