  • Other: Backspace of Dodge/Chrysler/Plymouth Van wheels?

    I have a line on a set of 15X6 Dodge/Chrysler/Plymouth van wheels, but need to know the backspace for them.

    Wheel model is NWRA 40718. The fitment will be on my '59 Lark 2D Hardtop. The center configuration is not that important, as it is my plan to run the full wheel covers.

    Thanks for any help you can give.

    Regards,
    Mark

    Does this help you any? These are Dodge 1/2 Ton Van Wheels that are closer to 7 inches. Unfortunately it is not a Sedan though.

      Sorry I' can't give you a back space but they fit my 62 Hawk Gt just fine . No front or rear clearance problem, a little tight on the rear removal on wheel well lip. I was using 215/75/15 Broadway Classics from Les Schwab. I have seen an early Lark with the 15 by 7 police rims on the rear that appeared to clear ok, Mike Gahlbecks. Good Luck Lou Cote

        If anyone has any ideas about snagging them however, you'll have to deal with his guard Dog Jackson!

          FWIW, once bought some unspecific Dodge van wheels at Hoods, a closeout place in St. Louis.
          Apparently they came off vans at a conversion place?
          Turned out that they hit inside on Stude fronts, but were great on tight rears like station wagons.

            The KH/NWRA 40718s are 4" backspace.
