    Looking for some help on identifying this spare tire that’s in my cuda and seeing what it belongs to. From everything I’ve found I don’t think it’s the correct tire for a E body it doesn’t have the 6th hole in rim and the lug holes are raised and not flat. Then I think it’s to small of a tire. But it doesn’t have any numbers stamped behind the valve steam. Any help would be appreciated. The tire is currently in a 71 cuda.

    As you suspect, that wheel isn’t correct for a Mopar. The 7.35 tire size converts to an E-78x14. It also has the “v-1” stamped on the side wall which I think is period correct for late 60s-early70s. Looks like the year part of the date stamped on the rim is K-1-5, which might be 1975 or even 1985. As for the tire, I think there is info out there that supports E78-14 tires as being correct for some e-body applications, but I don’t have any facts to back that up. The ones I’ve seen on Mopar rims had “E78-14” on the sidewall, not “7.35”
