Re: [Chrysler300] Re 14 inch wheels for 1960 chrysler

I had a lot of experience with
These wonderful 14 in steel
Wheels. On more than one
Occasion I had the wheel
Crack right at the safety
Bead. And this was at least
35 years ago. So beware of
Really old wheels. Now they
Are 60 years old. If ya do
A lot of performance driving
I would go with repo wheels
If available.

Michael, age has little to do with condition. 

Many of the old cars I’ve worked on have half the mileage of my current daily drivers. Corrosion is a factor but fatigue from rough roads, hard driving, and total mileage is also a big concern.

I would be comfortable using a 60 year old wheel IF I could verify it had low mileage and hadn’t been subjected to conditions that would lead to deterioration. If I could fully inspect it for signs of deterioration (cracks, corrosion, fatigue) and am satisfied with the integrity of the wheel, I’ll use it with just as much confidence as I would have in a brand new wheel. (Perhaps more confidence in some cases....)

My two cents...

Rims are very much a safety aspect.  I find no reason to use 60 year old rims.  If you find new, specially ordered do not hesitate to use these.  
 For those of you who chase old 6.5in 14 wheels dont forget to look at rusty wagon wheels.
Happy hunting!

A few days ago someone posted a want listing for 14 inch steel wheels for 1960 chrysler.

My friend Scott Dejka called me this evening and said that he had either 2 or 3 or those steel wheels. For some unknown reason, he is not able to post on this site.

His email info is: inyourjs@xxxxxxxxxxx

His phone number is 509885-5587

Cheers from Fern in SE BC where it's very warm today
