    Default Kelsy Hayes 5 1/2" Rims - Date Code?

    I have a complete set of these rims. I see the Kelsey Hayes stamp and the 15*5 1/2 stamp but no date code. Is there one somewhere?

    Thanks!

    Hi!

    Check on the inside of the rim next to the valve stem.

    It should be stamped on the rim (underneath the tire, not on the outside flange like '67-up wheels), and should look like this:

    Thanks for your help.

    I have looked so hard my eyes are bleeding. The wheels were powder coated about 10 years ago and think it may have covered up these stamps too much. I think I'm going to take the KO's off and go with the steel wheels and hub caps. I like that look.

    I agree with Sam, both my cars have the hubcaps. There've got to be so many cars with KO's running around it looks like the hubcaps were the option, instead of vice-versa. But, that's why they make Hondas & Yamahas, "Different Strokes for Different Folks". Cheers
