Chevelle Wheels

All wheels are 5-lug, 4-3/4" bolt pattern. All should have the size of the wheel and some type of manufacturer's trademark and is usually found on the inside of the wheel along with a series of numbers/letters such as 14x6 JJ. There will be a number stamped below or to the right of this alphanumeric series that represents the month. An example might look like K-1-7 4 DG for a 1967 rally wheel (DG) made at the Romulus, MI. plant in April of 1967 (K-1-7 4).

The workers stamping wheels didn't always follow this "rule" though as shown by this 1967 rally wheel.

Often found on the spider of the outside is the Kelsey-Hayes assembly date of the wheel.  An example would be K-1-0 where K is Kelsey-Hayes, the first 1 is the plant (1=Romulus, MI, 2=Windsor, ON, 3=Philadelphia, PA.) and the last digit is the model year, or 1970 in this case.
