    So somewhere along the line of different owners, the wheel covers were lost. Here is a pic of the wheel covers that at some point were with the car. Which cover would of been stock, and which one would of been a upgrade? Also included the build sheet if that helps with what wheel covers came with car. Thanks!!

    Found this...

    W11 69-71 Deluxe Wheel Covers

    Would that be one of the covers I posted?

    If this is a Chrysler 300, pretty sure the 300 hubcaps are stock. The W11 code is not very helpful in this regard as the basic hubcap on many models was the poverty cap. The full wheel cover is designated by W11, but there are a lot of different ones across the different models. Higher end models like the 300 usually had a full wheel cover as part of the package and the W11 code would be appropriate for that cap. The best resource might be the dealer order guide. This appears to be a '69 model? The Chrysler 300 cars generally had the 300 script on the caps unless they were ordered with road wheels which was the W21 code.

    The second set of hubcaps in your photo do not appear to be Chrysler hubcaps.

    There is a set of 2 '69 300 hubcaps on e-bay, they are the same as the ones in your photo. Seller is Rockwoodrita.

    Which photo?

    I've found both styles on ebay, but not sure which cover came originally with car. The one with the '300' embossed, or that '8 hole' style. That's what I'm trying ot figure out. lol

    The 1969 Chrysler Parts Book should have illustrations and option codes.

    I think the ones with the 300 are probably correct as they were part of the 300 package. But, as they say, if you know your way around a dealer order book, most anything can be made to happen.

    The ones on the left in your photo were standard. The ones on the right were extra cost option.

    I think it probably boils down to which you like better. If you can find the dealer options codes as others have said, you could probably get your answer, or a better guess. Others on here are more knowledgeable on 300's I'm sure. Because the 300 was a high line model, the W11 code could be the "standard" for 300 wheel covers or the optional for all Chrysler deep dish wheel covers. It seems most 300's I've seen are the standard 300 wheel covers but the deep dish are more unique IMO.

    I did find this on MyMopar.com but these sites are often incorrect because they cater to A,B and E bodies but this indicates they should be the wheel covers with the 300 text.

    The left ones in the photo are the W11 which came standard with the 300. The right ones in the photo are the W15 optional wheel covers that were listed for $ 34.55 (and were also optional on all other Chrysler models except if equipped with road wheels)

    Thanks everyone! Excellent info!!

    In a google search for covers, an old thread popped up, (2017), on here for a set of the W15 8 hole style. He still has them and is checking on shipping.

    On the broadcast sheet Line 4, box WH/COV code 24 is for part number 2881824, the illustration in the parts book shows that as the ones on the left in your picture.

    Pm sent. Here is a current pic. I washed one of them off, so the center is a little darker because it was still wet. Let me know, thanks!

    Too bad those road wheels are 14 inchers. A lot of hubcaps will snap right over the top of a magnum 500. I do that on my Torino to change up the look from time to time.

    So you’re ditching the road wheel look for full hubcaps? Is that so you can move up to a 15” wheel. Just wondering, they sure look great on your car.
