As the title says, I thought at one time they were being made?? I don't even care about the #'s but the look is mainly what I;m asking about
Thanks Ron

If you go that route, call them and ask for a reproduction hoop on an original 14" Chrysler center........

I did 15 x 8 and 15 x 7's up front.....

What about Wheel Vintiques series 63 O.E Chrysler black steel wheels? I was
told that there is a noticeable difference between them and 2944450's. I am looking for a good source also for a set of 450 wheels but want as close as possible for looks. The Stockton wheels look nice.

Look at them side by side and you'll see the visual difference

Buy some 14 wheels and some 071 15x7 Rallye wheels. Cut and splice and you have some nice looking fake 450 wheels

The difference is , the 450 wheel is a 14 inch center in a 15 inch drop band , so they could use the 9 inch dogdish cap
and the 15 inch ralley wheel trim ring and make a new wheel.
The WV series 63 OE wheel is a standard 15 inch center in a standard 15 inch band.
12.25 inside diameter vs. the 13.25 inside diameter of the band used in each case.

There is/was talk about someone doing them in China. That was 2 years ago and I have not heard of or seen a product.

I may be able to help if you want to drop me a PM or email.

It's easy enough to get 15" custom (to use 14" centers) outers at least though in a variety of widths... Carlstar does them at least (Formerly Carlise)

Unfortunatley, there is no source for a convincing NEW drop center (450 style) rim-shell.

If the rims are not covered by a beauty ring, the aftermarket shell stands out like a sore thumb.

I sell a convincing 450 clone wheel built from used OEM components.
