"Beebuzzn" can you get a close up of what is stamped by the valve stem?

Does the one side have an L stamped beside on the of the 5? As we look at this post the silver wheels shown I assume would be for a car that came with the small poverty caps. the black wheels from a car with full covers? My 66 hemi coronet shows 14B on the broadcast sheet. Mine would have been black and had the full wheel covers.

Mine are Satellite with full spinner wheel covers.

One rim is KH (Kelsey Hayes) the other 4 are Motor Rim and Wheel

The KH had this part number tag in the center inside

At least one has an L stamp... 5, "valve stem hole", 5, then L

This wheel had no visible stampings near valve stem. Got the lacquer thinner out and wiped paint off, nothing there. You can see NT stamped by smaller hole between valve stem and center. Also looks to have “made in usa “ stamped barely legible, before other info stamped on rim. Again not sure where I got this wheel or what it’s from.

I had a set of the wheels similar to those with the NT stamped in the them. They were 14x5.5” and actually had the 5 on either side of the valve stem. I was told they were not correct but I have seen some that have the notch in one of the small holes before. Thoughts on two different suppliers? Or different years?

NT wheels were mostly a west coast thing, from what I understand.

NT stands for Norris Technologies. They also supplied west coast GM car and truck plants with wheels/rims.

The wheel I posted is confusing to me as stamping as shown in picture says: Made in USA 4x55K NT H9, is H9 date code as in Aug. 1969 ? that would be a 1970 or newer ? added a couple pictures of 66 hemi satellite that was local car.

To replay about the wheel you posted, if they are the larger diameter caps that were used 67 and previous they will not be a 69-70 wheel. I am not sure what the H9 is but that is not a date if it has the large cap. The reason I mention that is they changed the cap design and went with a smaller 9" cap beginning in 1968, and continued on for years maybe into the 80's.

That is the way the wheels are on one of my '67 Belvedere's, only one of the smaller holes.
