    I am not familiar with what is a "K wheel". I have this one for sale. Is this what you are seeking? I would take $20 plus shipping, which is probably more than the wheel itself. My zip is 24090 if you want to estimate it.. DSC00979.JPG

    K wheels were used on early b bodies they accept the larger hub caps
    And are clearly marked with a K on the inside of the rim
    Yes they are hard to find in good shape

    I would guess they were the same wheels as used on the 1/2 ton trucks? I know the Sweptline guys seem to have trouble finding OEM style wheels too.

    They should have a 15 X 5 1/2 and a K stamped on the inside of the wheel, these are the ones I am looking for.

    Did you look on the inside of the wheels you have pictured?
    If they are stamped 15 X 5 1/2 and the letter K on them I will buy them

    The stamping would be on the inside where the tire beads make contact with the wheel, not on the back side of the wheel

      Ok , on the band you can see clearly 10 65 and just before that is a faint K , very hard to see because the press weld is right there. The other wheel , the press weld is right on where the size and the K would be.
      I could get a couple pic , but not sure if anything will show. Also I need to spin them to make sure they are straight.
