    Will.

 
     I apoligize for the poor quality of the last post. It seems that it is a challange to the eyes of those of us who have reached "gezzer" status. Here is an inproved version.

Were these wheels availible on 69 A12s? Why were they recalled? What size are these wheels? Just curious since I've seen these discussed on this board a few times now.

I think the lug nuts had a bad habit of coming loose and I think by the time the A12's went into production the recall was already in full swing or maybe even close to over? (See bulletin/recall date of Sept-1968)

[size=12][/size]
[color=#336699][/color]The cast wheel recall was in early Sept of 68, so they were N/A by the time the A12 was introduced.
 
 The problem was some of the early wheels developed cracks in the casting around the lug nuts. It may be that loose lug nuts were the cause of the cracks but Chrysler took no chances and discontinued and recalled the wheels. There are still some of the original wheels out there that have no sign of any cracks or defects.  
 
                                                     Will.

Lookin' good, Dave.   How's progress coming on the vert? I don't think we've seen those wheels on it before.

You havent, I just got the ground 2 weeks ago to put another car lift in, next plan is to get the motor painted in a couple of weeks and put it in, then its off to the body shop for color sand/buff then its final assembly

I think you hit a home run.............! I always thought those wheels looked great on a B-body..... But it's hard to beat a T5 vert.
