Simple question.

Did mopar make a 15 inch hubcap for 1957-58 models?

If not, then are reproductions the best bet for 15 inch wheel?
Thanks.

yep, you could buy them from JC Whitney. The dodge spinners for 57-58-59 were made and the Plymouths were popular.

I think the dodge spinners were the most popular.

They seriously listed like 10+ types of these same exact hubcap. without the knight, with the knight, with flags, with a point, checkered center, black center and they were all 14 and 15 inch varieties.

The plymouth spun one was also everywhere. this is just one page but there was like 5 pages with "dodge spinners"...

the 15 inch Lancer spinners look like s**t if you ask me.  That big bump is horrible but this guy has left over JC Whitney ones.

I got them cheaper but I am just using the spinners in the middle.  By the way these corrode FAST... very cheap  You have to be very careful.

Imperial went to 15" in '59-up too, so that's an option. '66 disc brake hubcaps look very similar to the 15" imperial and 300 hubcaps as well. Other than that, '54-'56 are also 15", but I don't know of any other. But original dog dish caps can be used with any wheel size. As stated above, you can usually get aftermarket '57-'58 Dodge spinners as well as '59 Dodge spinner caps in 15". I haven't seen the Plymouth versions for sale.

As far as I know, there were no Mopar OEM 15" wheel covers specific for the 1957-58 model years. Depending on the look you desire, there are some aftermarket ones available. Other easy options would be to use an earlier year, such as any 1956.

I assume you are using a disc brake that won't fit a 14" wheel? Otherwise, I'm not really sure what great benefit using a 15 vs a 14 would provide.

My personal favorite choice would be to use the 15" wheel cover from the 1959 Imperial. I think they look great as they are styled with the gear theme very much like the 300 wheel covers, but much more readily available and affordable. They come with either a gold gear or silver gear center and (at least in my opinion) fit in with the styling theme of pretty much all 57-64 Chrysler products.

Nice sets of the 59 Imperial 15" wheel covers seem to be available pretty much all the time on ebay.
