Default 8 Lug wheels

I have a 66 that has 8 lug wheels and I need to get the drums are warped. Does anybody know where i can send the drums to to get repaired or where I can get new drums? I would prefer to keep the originals on the car. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks...

Hmmm that'* a pretty tough one. Best suggestion on that would be to google and see what comes up for specialty shops.

Is there a small machine shop near you? Doesnt necessarily have to be an automotive one. The drums can be turned/trued by any machinist worth his missing fingertips. As well a general machine shop isnt going to give you alot of grief/refusal as the basis of minimum specs for turning them.

Their are a few listings on the net for the 8 lug wheels. I was a teenager when they came out and thought they were awesome.
