good Idea! Do some of them have slots or cooling holes? I plan on disc brakes and will want 15" wheels I know later Mopar wheels have some sort of slot to allow air to pass thru. I will be using wheel covers that are ventilated and match 1958 Belvedere caps. marc.

The Stude 15" wheels that I've had were only 4" wide, great for the skinny front tires favored by drag racers but not very practical for larger tires.

<p>SIR , who cares, ride it like u stole it!! iv had no problems at all running them on my 60/61 savoy, 65 442 4 speed,  that will smoke those tires up, bob runs them on his max wedge cars now and back in the real world , all pure stock drag racing( if u know what that is) are required to race with bias ply, iv found no issues what so ever, but then again I run lucas general bias ply black walls, maybe its those gay cheap radial coker white walls that may give some a problem , if your  (generaly speaking)   not running bias ply, why run at all</p>

I sold all 5 of my '56 Plymouth 15" wheels to a max wedge guy that takes them to a rim shop and welds wider hoops to the original centers. Pretty good idea. If I had known of a good shop to do that, I would have kept them to do the same thing.

Kurt McKim does mine. Shop is in Iowa, McWheels. Now the "Wheelguy" is selling the centers that take the large 66 and earlier dogdish.

Are the centers sold by the Wheel Guy new pressings or old centers he has scavenged?

Many half-ton seventies Dodges had 15" wheels, and there should be a glut of them, though I'm not sure if the truck poverty caps are the same size as the car. I'm quite sure the lug spacing is the same as the cars.

These are what I got from the salvage yard near me. Off of a late 70's B-100 van. Uses the small center cap. I have not tried the older poverty caps on them. 15x6.5 i believe, 5x4.5 bolt pattern.

The 66 and earlier wheels use the bigger hubcap. The problem with those wheels besides being somewhat hard to find is they have trouble clearing disc brakes. Until I did some grinding they rubbed on my AAJ combo on my 58 Plymouth, they rode the caliper on my 65 Coronet using the "Disco-Tech" method from Mopar Action using A body spindles on the early B body. Both times was with 15's. Hopefully the Wheelmans centers wont have that issue. The MaxWedge guys are the reason for this repop
