You just need wheels with the right backspacing. 1.5" more...
Late 300 or Charger or Mustang would be where I'd start.

Do you know what your 8 3/4 is out of Larry? Seems a b-body will be very close in width drum to drum.

Just don't want to be stuck with having to buy too much of a modern wheel if that make sense.

The Dakota axle. She's got some miles on her but I can rebuild if it's width will work . Spring pads are off a bit but that's no biggie to weld new ones.

Are those Dakota wheels on the rear axle now? Original Dakota wheels have the wheel mounting flange about an inch behind the front tire mounting surface (I'll post a picture of a Dakota wheel, front silver wheel is Dakota, rear black wheel is not.)

Early (66-70) B body rear is the most narrow 8 3/4 rear axle (other the the A body 8 3/4 that has the wrong wheel bolt pattern).

Other options: Jeep Cherokee, 73 & newer A Body ( disc brake car has 4 1/2" bolt pattern).
Non Mopar: Ford Explorer 8.8 has 4 1/2" bolt pattern, newer ones have disc brakes, and limited slip with 3:73 gears is pretty common, and with the correct rear end yolk, you can bolt the small Mopar u joint up to it.

Yes they are Dakota stock wheels on the axle pic, I took them off and measured mounting flange to flange and came up with 63" and Plaza is 60" .

Here are some WMS measurements for those in need. NO, it is not complete and any additions will be appreciated.

My car had 4 silver wheels, but 2 wheels had junk tires that wouldn't hold air. The 2 black wheels had good tires that held air, and they were larger tires, so they had to go on the back, right? By the time the car hit the street, someone gave me 4, old, matching, Michelin tires. That was when I discovered the rear wheels were also a 1/2" wider then the front wheels. I finally painted the wheels earlier this spring, (after 4 summers on the road), just before I put the new tires on, all 4 wheels are now blue.

The car is a blast to drive. With the 3.9 V6, 5 speed it gets good MPG, and I can drive it all day for around $20! The car is light enough I could get a chirp out of 3rd with the old Michelin 235 x 75 x 15 tires, its got a 3:55 limited slip 8 3/8 Dakota axle (haven't tried it yet with the new tires that got put on last week).

The car is just fast enough to be entertaining without collecting tickets. There is a guy around here that says "Its more fun to drive a slow car fast, then it is to drive a fast car slow." I agree with him.

My wife and I enjoy going for rides in it, we took it on a 135 mile ride today. The car has heat & defrosters and insulation (no AC, we are not AC fans, windows down cruising for us) and is very comfortable riding between about 40 degrees and 90 degrees. Memorial Day weekend we are off on a 2200 mile vacation covering 7 states with this car. The car runs down the Interstate just fine, but on our trip, we are taking 2 lane highways for a slower more relaxing trip. Gene
