      continuing with the topic, I have this questions: 1.- What wheel diameter is the standard on those 1962 Savoys, Fury, Belvedere? I have 14 inch steelies with 10 inches dogdish caps, I think they were the tipical setup. 2.- I ignore if those 62s also came with 15 inch diam wheels as a factory option. 4.- In that case those 15 inch also came with 10inch dogdish caps? 4.- probably other Mopars came with 15 inch and 10 inch hubcap setup, anyone knows if they exist? or do you have to literally construct them? I am interested in having 15 inch wheels with 10 inch dogdish hubcaps. THANKS !!

      I dont have the answers to all your questions, but i believe they all came with 14s in 62. @duster22 has new centers he had made for10" caps that can be put in 15"hoops (and i think maybe 16"hoops, you would have to ask him [ big brakes?])
      If there was a 15" wheel with a 10" cap, it was probably on a large car (big chrysler or imperial) or a station wagon/cop car/taxi. Hard to find, i'll bet.

      In the past I have seen a few early 60's Dodge trucks , they were 4 1/2 bolt pattern and had 15 inch wheels that took the 10 inch cap.

        62 Plymouth and Dodge use the same button caps. The 61 Plymouth cap is the same except it has the black paint filling. 61 dodge is different. Parts book will confirm this, but owning all 3 cars makes it personal.

          No steelies at this time, but anyway, here is my ride..., I am planning 15 inches rear 9 inch wide steelie wheels without dogdish caps. Front can be 14 or 15 steelies , 5 or 6 inches wide, with OEM dogdish caps. I hope you like it.

          I would like to see some of the creative ways to mount a 9 inch cap inside of a 10 inch cap. I have committed to the later style wheel, and am not turning back.
          We have so many creative and talented members here, that I am willing to bet, someone has a successful solution, without spending Crazy money on wheels and centers ect. Adapt and overcome?!

          I have found that early station wagons & some studebakers have 15 inch rims that take the 10 inch caps. thats where i found mine.
