Can you all tell me  what is the correct  14" wheel width  for a 1959 dodge custom royal 4 drht ?

Any Pics  ?

  Manual says  5.5"  custom royal or 6" wide  for station wagons .    coronets are 5" width

Also does it have the 3  center nubs for caps   on them or smooth centers ?

John,

I couldn't find anything in my '58 or '59 service manuals about wheel size, just different tire sizes (although I do believe wagons did have wider wheels). If you need a set of 14"x5" wheels, I have a set for sale now on Craigslist, see the link below. These came off a '61 Plymouth Savoy.

<p>Hi Jon . I have to measure the three wheels that came on the car and see if they are the correct wheels for it. the appear to be maybe 6" wheels . If so , I'll need just one to match the other three. Thanks for the heads up on your wheels for sale Jon .</p>

Are you sure of that ? Don't you have 59 Dodge hubcaps (spinners or regular) on those wheels ? If you do, they are 14".

Ron , you might be thinking of my old 59 dodge cr 2 drht I sold years ago. that had 14" with spinners. This black 4 door hdtp I have now came with 15" wheels with some standard 58 dodge caps on it.

If your black car has 58 Dodge hubcaps on it, then they are 14" wheels. Right ?
