Are these magnum 500 wheels?

Click the image to open in full size.

Looks like they are missing rings and centercaps but what else would they be if not magnum 500's????

they look like magnum 500's. {which did not have trim rings originally}
or they look like chromed mopar road wheels.
or heck, they could be for a buick {picture not clear}
BTW, the mopar magnum 500's were not as wide as some the Ford versions.

Where did you find them?

Guy in town has them locally for sale. He is not sure what they are off of or how to measure if it's 4.50 etc....All he knows is it is a 14 inch wheel. What would be the simplest way for me to tell. I have never owned this type of wheel. I guess I need to actually meet up and measure for 4.50....

well the first thing to find out is the bolt pattern. [diameter of the lug nut holes; should be 4 1/2 inches]

next, to measure the width, measure where the "bead" of the tire sits across the wheel. [somewhat accurate but thats how I do it]

often on the back side of the wheel it will have the measurements stamped onto the wheel and sometime other info like the manufctr. and it may even have a "pentastar" for Chrysler.

I am not sure of the original manufacturer but I'm thinking they were made for Chrysler [and others] by "Motowheel"
