My ‘63 was purchased with the factory chrome rims. ‘Never saw a car with hubcaps installed on the chrome rims ... would certainly harm the chrome.

We installed chromed “spider” plates and lug nuts to cover axle ends.

After a few years of salted winter roads in Northern Indiana, rust won out.

My favorite Wheel. Of course mine were just aftermarkets, but closely resembled the factory style.

We would only run ours in the nice weather. Once cold weather hit, we went back to painted wheels with Dog dish caps, until Spring again.

Those painted wheels would be Deep Dish Wagon wheels, if we could find them.
