2944450 Rim Questions. I have 3 of these rims. I am trying to figure out the date codes and kind of a WIW. I only need one for my Bird spare.
Here is what I know. Only one has the chrysler star and part number. I believe it was on my car as a roller. The other two I got with a 70 Cuda. These were being used for the Cuda's snow tires. The two appear to be over the counter rims. They don't have the part number or chrysler star. I am leaning towards the one with the part number on it for my car. The other two have the same date codes on them.
Any help would be great.

More Pics the 2 that have the same dates have a label on the inside. if you can't read the dates on the 2  they are 5 on one side of the valve 10 and 7.0 on the other side.

SWEET!  coolgleamA

early pre-September '69 wheels didn't have the part number stamping

the M4/? stamping isn't quite clear is the "?" a "9" (the same should be stamped on the center near a stud hole & between the beads where it is nice & shiny)

M = Motor Wheel Corp.
4 = plant #4
9 = 1969

7.0 = 7.0" wide

1 -o- 15 = January 15th
5 -o- 10 = May 10th

can you post pics of the DOT date codes on the tires? under the "YEAR" of Goodyear, not sure where on the Mickey

the pair with the snow tires were probably purchased direct from a Goodyear store (Goodyear owned Motor Wheel in the early '70s),
or from a dealership when the 'cuda was new, sourced from a local Goodyear franchise

for a while the "450" wheels were $500-1000+ each, not sure how much that has changed since a reproduction was recently made available by Tony's Parts

I'd use the number/pentastar stamped wheel in the trunk of your Superbird

This is a typical vintage aftermarket wheel.
I worked in the garage at a Sears store in the 70's.
We had racks full of various wheels like this, with the "MW-xxxxx" numbers, for snow tires.

Budd Wheel was another big source for OEM and aftermarket steel wheels, back then.

And lets not forget Kelsey Hayes...

the Mickey Thompson tire may not follow the same date coding as the Goodyear (but it does pre-date 1972) anyone know who made MT tires of that vintage?

the M1/0 wheel is 1970 production
the M4/3 wheel is 1973 production
