    If I switch to G.M. rims on my 67 can I use the stamped steel ones or do they need to be the cast aluminum because of the weight involved. The junk guy says the offset and everything is the same. When I did the brakes everything was dodge. How do I tell if the drums Dodge or Chevy. (bolt pattern can be the same ) What do i uses if they are Dodge.

    It doesn’t matter if it is steel or aluminum as long as it has an appropriate weight rating (at least 3000lbs per wheel – more is better). Besides correct bolt pattern and offset, it should also have the correct size center hole. Finally, some steel wheels have a slight indentation on the face that does not fit over the large brake drum.

    Hope this helps!
