I dig the 70's style.
I have not had any luck finding any cool old-school 8-lug wheels for my 1987 E350. She has 16's from stock. Cragars would be sweet, but of course you can't get a 5 spoke in 8 lug. Slot mags are cool, but I would want chrome so I don't have to spend 4 hours a day polishing them. I prefer new, so I know they have not been damaged. I am not opposed to 15".

Any ideas?

In chrome? I don't know, chrome steelies maybe?
American Racing Outlaw IIs come in 8-lug, but I think they're polished too (and they seem more 80s to me anyway).
I have an old Chevy truck that's 8-lug, so I feel your pain of not finding a wide selection of wheels, much less something cool.

I have the Nomad II from Cragar. They are the same style that was used on a lot of 4X4 vehicles in the 70's. i think the only other option you ever see in pictures from the 70's and 80's on 8 lug axles were Turbines. However, most 8 lug turbines are 16.5" (i have a set i would sell, if your interested in dealing with 16.5" tires). I have seen a couple sets of 15" turbines with the 8 lug pattern, but its rare.

but rather to skid in broadside in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up,
totally worn out, and proclaiming
