    I wanted to know if anyone knows what my rear wheels are?
    The PO said they are police wheels, but I dont think they are.
    Someone else said they are off a Lil Red Express Truck.
    They are 15" large bolt pattern and 8-1/4" total width and measure 4-1/2" from where they touch the hub to the back edge of the wheel.
    They have 255/60R15 tires on them.
    I like the way the cars sits with this wheel/tire combo.
    Is it possible to get a 15" Rallye wheel in that size or something close that will take that tire and offer the same clearances?

    On the front of the car are 14" Rallye wheels 6-1/2" total width and a 4" backspace. The front tires are 245/60R14

    Click this link. This tune always makes me think about long drives and the stuff you think about when your alone with your thoughts...

    Lil Red Express trucks came with chrome steel slotted wheels. That top wheel looks like a silver version of the cop car wheels on my Scamp.

    OK I got a PM from someone who said Chrysler made 15" Rallye's that were around 7" wide.
    Do you think I could get the 245/60-15 on that rim?

      Cop wheels are stamped on the inside with what starts with LL? I dont remember the rest. The inside bead measures 7". Where did you measure 8" ?

        Most everyone says they are cop wheels.
        The Dodge Warlock was a cool pickup

        Yes. The tire will fit on the rim (BFG says a 7" rim will handle a 255/60-15.

        The question is will a 245/60-15 fit in your a-body wheel well? I tried 255/60-15 on cop car wheels in the Demon with BBP disk brakes. No go. I called Stockton wheel who recommended 235/60-15. It works, but just barely. When it's tiime to replace will go smaller.

        If they are 15 x 8, they are Super Coupe wheels. Mid 80's. Same as cop wheels but 1 inch wider and came painted textured silver.

        Another big difference is that those Super Coupe/Kit Car wheels didn't have the center lips or nubs for the dog dish hub cap to snap on too...they also made a textured 15x7 rim without the lip as well, these came on some Dodge Magnum models.

        Cop wheels had 5 bigger slotted holes.Your wheel has 6 small slotted holes.I don't think they are cop wheels.

        The op's rim doesn't look like a cop wheel to me, the slots look too long and thin! That said though, I looked over every picture for differences in them and man they are close! How bout the OP and someone else with a cop wheel measure the slot's length and width and how far apart they are and compare the numbers? Geof
