Condition
Used - Like New
The holy grail of mopar wheels. 14” 5x4 small bolt pattern Kelsey Hayes recall wheels. Comes with original trim rings in great shape.

I’d prefer buyer picks up in north central Ohio -vs- shipping. Can also bring to northern NJ as I make regular trips there.

I asked a couple of days ago on Farcebook if he had the center caps and special lugnuts with no reply, that makes a HUGE difference!

Thanks for the information.
I'm not really up on these but I have a used pair of 15 x 6 removed from from a yard car 1969 Plymouth back in the day.
They are dated 9-20-1968 as shown and are stamped 15 x 6 JJ, Kelsey Canada on the inside.
No center caps or trim rings were with these.
However, the edge is chromed so wouldn't take trim ring I wouldn't think.
They have 10 rivets around the inside which I read somewhere was indicative of factory original plus being made in Canada.
Any gurus on these rims that can offer if there were two versions, like an early or late rim, one for trim rings
and one not ?
Sorry to high jack the original post

the ones with the chrome rim were the promotional version for the new model 69 vehicles they were shown in many of the promotional adds as well asin the models shown at the detroit auto show . i believe after the promotional adds were out there was a dession made that it was cheaper to use a trim ring than chrome a rim. i also have a set with the chrome rims. Terry call me about those rims.

Todd Hoffman USED to make the trim rings for the 15" versions.

But quit doing them several years ago. So tri rings are out there if you do some digging


the center caps and lug nuts are made of un-obatanium

actually, the 9/20/68 date would be after any: "pre-production", "pilot'" or "promo" cars

AFAIK once Chrysler Corp. made the decision to discontinue/recall the wheel, Kelsey-Hayes offered the wheel thru the aftermarket with the chrome hoop

When I was a kid, I had a B5 blue Superbird poster, and also a 1969 Orange Daytona poster on my bedroom walls. The Daytona sported the KH "recall" wheels with redline tires. Those wheels always fascinated me as a kid. They are very cool IMO...but too pricey for me. I still have those two posters...now both on my garage wall. up

I still have that poster hanging in my shop. Along with the Superbir one, Red Hemi GTX, Pro Street 74 Cuda, 69 Hemi Charger 500 etc. still have the whole series.
