    I have some 15x8 Steel wheels from a Ram Charger {Used with the 31" tires 2 years only from what I understand} and some 15x7 steelies as well.
    Should I shoot them black or FM3? I also have a set of NOS Dog Dish caps{realy 2 sets}
    I want to have a differant look than the rallies I have

    Can you tell me what year Ramchargers had these wheels? I know a guy who is parting out a '91. Would it be worth picking them up if they're 8"s? They won't fit anything I have except my Eagle wagon.

    I might be wrong but think it was 78-79
    Lots og guys think they have found 8" wide ones but they are realy 7" ones since they don't know how to measure.
    Note}They should be measured from the "inside where the bead seats" not on the outside.
    I will be running the same tire as are on the rally rims
    I side shot. Maybe someone could photo shop some wheels on it?

    Normally I would say body color, but I think that might be too much pink. How about Black wheels with the dog dish caps, with the trim rings also. That might be enough bright work to set off the black paint and give it a nice look.

    From the factory steelies were body color until mid 1971, after then they were all black. If you're looking for a factory look.

    I know what you mean about wanting to have the option for a different look, but the ralleys look cool on there now, I would think black and dog dish caps or even a set of good old center lines may work for you.

    Black would be the way with the dog dish. Is that a 73 or a 75? If it's a 75 how did you do the bumpers?

    340six,

    IMO I'd go FM3, no trim rings, & no white letter tires.
