I want to run a set of steel wheels with the copo style dog dish center caps on my 69.

I would like 15 x 8 out back and 15 x 7 up front.

My questions are:

- Where could I score a set of rims for this.

- Does the aftermarket make the dog dish style center caps?

- Does anyone have a pic of a 69 with this wheel combo?

Thanks!

I've got some COPO style dog dish hubcaps from a 69 chevelle. They're in boxes somewhere, I haven't looked at them in quite a while. From what I do remember, 3 of them are excellent and the 4th has a dent that would need to be repaired. If you're interested, let me know.

You could also go with a rally wheel ,paint it black and just use the short corvette style centers.......
