I've looked and looked and can not find the stock wheel dimensions, including offset, for my 1960 Adventurer.

I like the early hotrod look and am thinking of having a second set of wheels and tires, aftermarkets, to change over to when I want that look. American Racing TorqThrust II is a good looking alternative with the gloss black spokes that I believe will look great on my car.

Any help will be greatly appreciated. A reference where I can look up the specs would be super appreciated!

Thanks in advance.

The standard wheel offset for a 60/61 Desoto is 1/2", just like on any 60/61 full size Plymouth.

In Wizard's diagram, A= offset, B= back spacing.

"C" = rim width + 1 inch.

? You mean - 1" ? The advertised rim width is not the outer width, like in Wizards diagram. And of course John is right, I'm pretty sure that was a typo.

No, it is as I said. Think about it. You are thinking of the same thing but with the 1 on the other side of the equation. Rim Width = C - 1"

Rim width (wheel width) is always expressed by the inside bead-to-bead dimension. The outside dimension is irrelevant because that dimension varies with the rim design.
