68 Charger - Aftermarket Rims
Posted by IBuild1/48 on Tuesday, May 19, 2020 9:02 PM

I found this 68 Charger as my next build. The question is does anyone know were I can find aftermarket rims shown in the picture?

I have not seen any kit that had the wheel covers shown. They were not a popular option when the cars were new. As a MoPar club member for many years, I've only seen one set on a car.

Those rims are actually wheel covers for the 15" wheels that were required for the 426 Hemi option.  14" wheels were used on all other engine options.  I don't know of anybody who makes those wheel covers in scale

I would check with Firebird Model Works as he may(?) have those.

Apparently they were a 15 inch disc brake wheel cover?

That's all that I have been able to find out about them.
