    Picture with original rims and white walls is the current look. Thanks for all of the help deciding on the tire size.

    Dust Cap

    I am going to be putting the original rims back on my 50 Dodge. They were not on when I purchased the car. Does anyone know what dust cap I need? I am wanting to go with chrome lugs and dust cap for now but so far, I can’t find a dust cap that will fit.
  4. Thanks BobDeSoto for info.
  5. Sorry, forgot to mention I will be putting the original rims on. They came with the car, but no tires.
  6. Correct the current tire and rims are not stock, came on the car when purchased.
  7. Ok, I am getting ready for some new rubber for the 50 Coronet. When I bought the car it had/has air shocks with 235/60/15. I have to keep max air in shocks or they rub the fender lip. My original spare looks to be a 7.10 which I converted using your guys' references to be either a 215/75 or 225/70. I would like to run the 225/70 as they are a little shorter and wider. My plans will be to then drop the rear 1.5-2 in. Does anyone see or have had any issues running 225/70? Pics would be appreciated also.

    Seat Covers

    This isn't going to be a show car, just a driver to take the family out in on the weekends. The seats currently have blankets, so I am am looking to recover them and have some pad added back in. I have talked to a few local places and it seems much easier for them and cheaper if I already have the covers, then they can install and add padding.

    Seat Covers

    Maybe another question as I haven’t found a topic yet that talks about seat covers. What places have you folks purchased covers from? I am going to tackle my door panels myself but I don’t think I can the seats.
  11. Curious if other brand (Ford, Chevy) seat covers will also fit my 50 Coronet? Has anyone ever seen a cross reference for seat covers or used a cover made specific for another brand?

    Lugnuts

    When I purchased my 50 Coronet it had aftermarket rims already on it. I am planning to change back to the original steel wheels. What size, type of lugnuts do I need to look for and where can I find them. Thanks in advance.
  13. Thanks for all the feedback. I put the car up on the lift and both the rear end and trans are full of fluid now.
  14. Recently purchased a 1950 Dodge Coronet and I am going through all of the fluids. Shop manual says to use 10w engine oil in Gyromatic. What type are you folks using? I am having a hard time finding 10w straight. Thanks in advance.
