I have a BFG F78x14 collapsible spare tire for my 70 Cuda but need the rim for it. Does anyone know what the rim size is supposed to be for this tire? Does anyone have the correct rim for sale?

Thanks.

not sure what that would have come off of. Any idea what the manufacture date on the tire is?

No I don‘t. Would a tire that old even have a date code on it? Obviously someone replaced the collapsable tire that was on it at some point.

The DOT number will tell for sure but most likely 1970 if it is original. DOT last number would indicate the year 0 for 1970 and so on.
OK, thanks. It's a pain trying to figure out the correct rim for the collapsible spare tire for my Cuda. Found a tire, just need the rim to match it or of at least be close.

Well I’m open to digging deeper on it. Maybe there’s more numbers on the rim in between the beads so I’d be open to having the tire removed.

The rim looks to be in decent shape and since its a 14x5.5 it would fit fine, just curious what year. I'm not familiar with these so not sure if there is a way to check year on a rim??? Also, I think there is a Pentastar on all Chrysler rims.

Is it really for sale or isn't that guy just asking "WIW".

I’m not sure of the exact date code yet, still researching but it appears to be correct for a ‘70 And is in very nice condition. Also not sure what it’s worth…

well I'm definitely interested in this wheel. Honestly, don't know what it would be worth. I'm guessing that it would cost around $40 just to ship it to Florida. if you want, e-mail me at [email protected] and we can discuss price. Thanks.

Still lookin? I have one with tire but the tire is inflated on one side. Will try to deflate but if I can’t it’s probably best to use your tire on my rim.
