chrysler wire wheels?

hello All, This past fall a 62' Chrysler Imperial followed me home. "be nice don't ask!" It was just one of those things. This car was harder than the winter! "But" it's done and now ready for tire's and wheels. The plan is to put a set of the kelsey-hayes style after market wires on it. After a lot of shopping I'am more confused than ever, Not so much about "price" as I'am about "quality" I need some advice!! Wheel size is 15x6 with the 5x5 +1/2 bolt pattern. Tire size is 235/75 15's or "L"'s. Thanks Jimmy

caliper clearance?

I have some wires in the shop that don't fit disc brakes. I don't know if yours has Disc's I would make sure any would fit a disc's system I bought a disc conversion kit for mopars at a swap meet since my nephew is a mopar collector, super bird, early baracuda , 440 coronet etc, but he didn't want to do the swap. He did swaps on some earlier cars, and had to change wheels also.

Chrysler wire wheels and disc brake conversions

I am going through that right now, and want to keep the wire wheel look. Have bought the kit, but with my luck, I will probably face the same problem. But, my thinking now is that if the GM caliper won't clear, then the Wilwoods for the chevy mounting points might fit, as they are low profile and not near as bulky as those cast iron monsters. Let us hope.

wires, wires

I must like wire wheels, I have a set of 27 T wires on My 22 T speedster, I Have Harley wires on the front of one T bucket and a Lincoln Mark Disc rear with wires that I had to buy the spacers to get caliper clearance, another T has Amc Disc on the front with 30's chrysler ( I think ) wires in the front, some 6 bolt GM wires for a rat project, 36 wires on my 29 A roadster, A wires welded to a T rear hubs and A wires welded to a T front axle on an old hay wagon parts pile.
