hey you had the same problem I had. You can go to discount tire and tell them that you are interested in some outlaw II or the original outlaw series from american racing. THey will look at you crazy when you tell them that you have that lug pattern, but if you can get them to call the manuf they will have tham. I have looked high and low and these were about the only ones that I could afford. They ran about 75.00 each. Now on the other hand you can go the billet specialties way and give them your frist born child and both you legs for a set. they will run you about 350 to 400 each. but they wil build you any design you want. I have checked out torgue thrust, centerline, weld, and all the most popular designs. By the way what kind of car are they going on?

That pattern is a real weirdo for sure. I think it was only used for a few years in the mid 60s on Darts, and Valiants and maybe the original big-window little Barracudas. I'm actually surprised anyone makes a wheel for it at all.
I bought a ton of wheels at an old speed shop on Long Drive in Houston and had a couple of those in the bunch. Had no idea what they fit but the guy who bought 'em at the swap meet for $15.00 each did!

You can sometimes find the original rally wheel from the old Darts in that pattern in 15", I think there was a 14" version too. Buy the stainless beauty rings made by the repro market.

It looks good, but rims are getting hard to find.

Hey pasadenahot rod is right they did come on the big window barracuda, and the mid 60's and 70's dart. I have four steel rims that I am willing to sell if you are interested. they are in good shape no bends or cracks if you are interested. I would let them go for about 100.00 for the set. They have tires too but one of them is showing threads. ( that was the one was the tire that got roased most of the time. The tires are 13x6. they are real short just let me know if you are interested. they came off the old barracuda!!!! Joel

I'm looking for the same style wheel. was at junkyard today and found 6 or 7 dodge darts with that bolt pattern.All were 13 or14 inch wheels. ineed 15 inch with this bolt pattern. Just a stock steel wheel is all I need. Is there hope or am I on a wild goose chase? <img src="confused.gif" border="0">

your just spinning your wheels. All they cam in was the 13 and 14 inch wheels. when the mopar gusy switched to the 4.5x5 pattern is when they switched to the 15 inch tire. is there a reason that you want a 15 for a tire? Joel

We bought the rear end for street rod project. Not doing a whole lot of research. Width is great gears are great. Needed 15's because of new tires and hubcaps. Also the front tires and wheels are 15's. Thanks for your input. Jeff

yes you can purchase some moser axels and change the pattern but the front are disks though. That is where he is going to run into a problem.

who knows mopars are all screwed up!!!!! every thing on the damn things are backwards and obsolete. the only benifit is that they had a bad *** track trcord for drag cars back in the 60's.

Ricekiller,
Jegs (mail order)in Columbus Ohio got me a replacement Creager 14x6 and a center cap S/S for my 67 cuda for about $110 last year. Give them a try,also CokerTire.com sells Vintage wheels and Tires.They even had some 15" Rally wheels with the 5 on 4 pattern.
Good Luck,
Rudy

Have the same problem 5 on 4 problem on my daughter's 1973 Dodge Dart Swinger (with stock 14" rims).
I am ordering a set of four 15" Cragar SS rims (series 61) for it through Discount Tire.

They cost $170 ea. for fronts (going with 15" x 6" rims there) and $185 ea. for rears (going with 15" x 8" rims there).

Costly, but cheaper than changing axles and front components and then buying rims.
