Wheels for 66 with disc brakes
Hello all, I put a disc brake conversion on my 66 and want to keep my stock hubcaps on it... the problem I'm having is that wheels' offset is not fitting in front. Does anyone know what wheel I may be able to fit from a later vehicle? I've heard I can fit an 84 S10??? any suggestions...?

I believe you neeed 15 inch wheels for disc brakes so stock hubcaps wont work.

Disc brakes adds to the cars front track (width between the two front tires). If you have a dog dish hub cap I believe that they may interchange from a 14 inch wheel (not likely to clear a disc brake) to a 15 inch wheel (which isn't guaranteed to clear either; it just has a better chance of doing so).

If you want to run full wheel covers, any 14 inch steel wheels from '80s Camaro, S-10, Monte Carlo, Malibu, etc, will work. Camaros and S-10's also had a styled type 14 inch steel wheel as an option, the covers will fit those too. All of those cars had disc brakes, so they should clear your brakes (probably uses the same parts as the vehicles listed above).
