16" ? I wanna see proof. I never heard of them doing a 16" version.
I like the idea of the 69 road wheel / recall wheel though. I've never seen another on a 70/71 Polara. Or any Polara that i can recall ....

Most of the W23 Kelsey Hayes wheels made were on C bodies, when new.
Over 900 sets, in fact!! That's a lotta wheels!

16 inch? Are you measuring the wheel from outside edge, to outside edge? The correct way is to measure from Bead to Bead. That should give you the correct measurement of 15 inches. The "Recall" wheels had a problem with the lug nuts working loose, make sure you torque them to the correct value, and check them often.

That’s cool. I’ll have a set on mine some day. Great find you’re pretty lucky snagging those wheels. You get the center caps included in the purchase? What do the lug nuts look like ?

That’s a 15x8 repop vs his. His find does look a bit taller. Hard to tell. But does it really matter either way still a great great find.

Those look really good on there. The recall wheels are one of the best looking rims that Mopar offered. Too bad they didntd work out.

I saw this on Facebook last night which I think would look really good on a 69-71 Dodge.

I looked into those repop recall wheels a few years ago now and I am still considering a set for my 1969 Monaco coupe.

I believe that they were made by either by Specialty Wheel Limited in Portland, Oregon or Stockton Wheels in central California and my recollection is that they did have other sizes available besides 15" but since the stock size is what I want, I am not certain of the option to go larger. I will try to check with them next week.
