This one:

Exterior and interior-wise a clone of my car. It looks nicer than mine in that regard. Not sure about those spinner wheel covers. They look wrong.

So doesn't that imply that the wheels are 14" not 15" like they should be (for a 56)?

those are the aftermarket incorrect ones, both 14 and 15 are incorrect as they stick out way to much and look s**tty... They bulge out way to far.

that being said, they dont look bad on a "fat" tire... it helps hide the bulge inside I think so here it kinda works.

There were literally 50 different pages of "Dodge" spinners in JC Whitney catalogs in the early 50s

I wish they would have copied them exactly.

Can you show a picture of what you mean by bulging out too much? Do you mean that they don't seat fully against the rim? I am not familiar with this issue.

Some differences that I know between aftermarket and original:

1. Knight is always a little different. Some aftermarket knight designs are goofy.
2. Hubcap is chromed steel instead of stainless like the originals. Aftermarket hubcaps will rust very quickly as the chrome job is cheap too.
3. Aftermarket can be 15" or 14". Originals are only 14".

Umm....Not for 56 Dodges. The OE wheels and covers are 15".

I am only talking about '57-'58 as I don't think aftermarket reproductions are available for the '55-'56 designs. There are reproductions for the 59 as well, but they look different.
