    Last weekend I was in South Dakota helping my dad clean out the old grainery on grandpa's farm, and found three wheels like the one in the attached picture. 16 inch, and 4 1/2 inch bolt pattern if I eyeballed the tape correctly. Anybody know what manufacturer made these, and years they were used? Thanks!

    My Suzuki Sidekick (1995) had wheels a lot like that. Same bolt pattern as early Ford.

    You can tell a Mopar wheel by the 5 little holes for the alignment dowel made necessary by the use of wheel bolts instead of studs and nuts.

    Yes, Dodge/Plymouth - one of two styles they used. This one looks like a Motor Wheel Corp. version. The other type had open holes and was made by Budd Mfg. - see pic below....
