Default Stockton Wheel

Would like to get a set of 15” dog dish wheels that clear disc brakes for a ‘63 Catalina. Has anyone dealt with Stockton Wheel recently?

Anecdotal information, but I was reading a discussion on another board recently that indicated that recently they've been slow to turn around orders.

15" steel rims from a 1971-1976 full size Pontiac will fit your car and should be easy enough to find, although I don't know about being able to run period dog dish caps on them.

I've run dog dish caps on my '64 GTO with the original 14" wheels, factory 15" wheels and now 17" bare steel wheels from Wheel Vintiques (through Summit).

Summit listing for 5x5 15" wheels - I think that's what you're looking for.

I'm very happy with my 17's by WV.

Not answering the man's question Mr Champion.

As Stuart alludes to, early Pontiac poverty caps attach differently than '64 through mid 70's wheels, thus the need for Stockton Wheels services.

OPH

I wasn't aware of any structural difference between a 1963 wheel and a 1964 wheel.

I apologize for not knowing.

It's been nearly 50 years since I owned a pre '64 Pontiac (Bonneville), but that had full wheel covers, not dog dish caps.

Full size cars had clips to hold the caps on up until 1964. 1965 and up they used caps like you have on your A body. I have not found anyone that’s not in California that does custom steel wheels. Shipping both ways would add a lot to the cost. Seems like with the lack of 14” tires, a 15” period correct wheel would be a good idea. I have a perfect set of caps and NOS clips, just need new wheels. . . .
Will probably run something else for a while.

These are what I have on my car. Got 'em new from Summit a few years ago for $90/ea with free shipping. Looks like they are $104/ea now.

That's what I posted up back on Feb 19th.

Evidently the Series 62, which I have on my '64 GTO, has a different center hub than what the early 60's big cars have - which won't allow the earlier poverty caps to work.

Correct.

I already have a set of WV Series 37 with plain caps which I guess is what I’ll be using.

Thanks

I have a set of dog dish Pontiac wheels on a set of 15x6 steelies that I kept after selling off a '78 Bonneville.
Ran them with disc brakes and no issues for several years on my '68. I wanted a wider wheel in back and ordered a pair of Wheel Vintiques and I never could get the original caps mounted on the aftermarket wheels. Wound up returning them and going with Torque Thrust mags. Still have the GM wheels and caps in my basement.
I know this has little to do with a '63 model, just saying, I had issues with OEM caps on aftermarket wheels but none at all fitting the caps on a 1978 B-body OEM wheel.

No.

But, while checking to see if the Wilwood calipers fit the Scarebird brackets, I found that the WV 37 wheels I have will not clear the Wilwood calipers. Wheels are 15x6.
Next step is to try some TTOs I have on my ‘66 Catalina to see if they clear. I believe they are 15x7.
You would think that a 15” WV wheel would work.

Still want to run early dog dish caps . . . . .
