Default CC wheels for my '59

I am in need of two wheels for my '59. The place I took a tire to be mounted a rim on accidentally let one of my correct rims take a trip to the scrap yard. I now only have 3 rims that are correct for the car. So I am in need of one to put on the car and one as a spare. Anyone have a couple handy I could purchase???

I would tell the tire store to go to the scrap yard and find it. Getting CC wheels for a 1959 aren't going to be cheap, and they are heavy, so shipping is also going to be expensive.

Oh believe me, I gave them the third degree when they told me that. I tried to retrieve the wheel but it had already gone to heaven sadly. I know it won't be cheap, but I don't want to have a restored car that only has 3 wheel covers because one rim isn't rated for the weight and doesn't have a large enough lip for the wheel cover to go on.

One reason that they are hard to find, and expensive, is that 1959 & 1960
are the only ones that interchange with each other. They are different than the 1958 and down wheels, and are also different than the 1961 and up wheels. What the specific difference is, I can't say, because that information isn't listed in the book that I referenced this information from.

59 and 60 have a star pattern in addition to being welded and riveted, regualar cars just have welded rims. 61 and newer dont have the star pattern.

Pic of a rim that is the same on my 61 and 62. I would think at least 61-62 would work?

In '61 Daniel the lip was reversed and rivots were seen from front for first time. '59 or '60 hubcaps won't fit '61-'62 CC wheels, which are easier to find.

a little help here in what we are looking for might be in order. I'm understanding what you are saying on the reversed rim. large prongs on the hubcap. but a shot of a 59 - 60 wheel so I can tell the difference would help. might have rolled a number of them over the hill as who wants one of those back wards caddy wheels anyway. now I'm not going to get into the OMG side of things but a stock two rivet wheel will hold the back side up just as easily as the 3 riveted one. you not carrying a load and your not doing high speed chases. they are rated better then the tires you putting on it anyway. just don't mix and match. put the same style wheel on the same axle and drive it like you want to keep it.
