    I'm looking at a nice set of two for my front wheels, but it says they came from a 64 B-Body...

    I have stock rims on my 65 SF, will they fit from a 63/64/65 B-Body?

    Do they all have the same steel rims size in the center?

    Thanks

    (Personally, I hate the things. But like you, I remember when they were called that. I still call them that today.)

    They came in two sizes on passenger cars, 9" and 10".

    I believe they kept the 10" until 1967, but I may be wrong.

    Nick is right--two sizes.
    Just make sure the rims and dog dishes match up before pulling the trigger.
    The majority go with the 65-later rims which broadens your choice of dog dishes. The rims will fit any Mopar from mid-50's and up.
    64 and older dog dishes and rims are out there but not as common.

    Can anybody tell me if there are any factory 15 inch rims that will accept a 61 Plymouth savoy dog dish?

    During the summer I saw a '67 Newport convertible here in DC (quite a rare sight) several times, it was light yellow, with the "dog dish" hubcaps. I remember they had the stylized "C" on them. Don't normally go for these on a Chrysler, but the car had NICE wheels that matched the body color, WITH whitewalls, and it made for a smooth, semi-custom, yet period correct look.

    Did you make it it's own thread. Don't recall much activity recently.

    In the Fuselage section, I periodically update it, mostly as I collect parts.

    Champagne taste on a ginger ale budget means trying to be resourceful and frugal.
