    In what different width did the production car 15" wheel come? (4,5" BP)
    I looking to widen a say 4,5 or 5" wide wheel to get correct back spacing for my application.
    What do you say?
    Than you.

    Though 5.5''factory may be possible, 6'' and 7'' was the normal for Chrysler's disc brake wheels usually found after 1967. There were some 8'' cop car style.Also early Ramcharger/Trailduster 4 1/2'' bolt pattern if I remember correctly.
    There are companies that will do special wheels made to order though pricey. I've had wheels made thru Stockton Wheels.

    Apparently cop rims are now produced in various width by Stockton and others.
    But all the factory one's I've ever seen are 7 inch.
    I run them on 4 cars and have spares.
    Where there 8 inch?

    8'' . I called them cop car wheels but they were on the late 70's R/T Aspen and Volare' Road Runner .I believe the Aspen R/T Super Coupe and they were slotted like the cop wheels and had bolt in centers. Not sure the Road Runner of that era did but maybe.
    I'm going from memory on the RamCharger/TrailDuster.
