Spotted a decent craigslist deal for some 5x14 ag tires.. but obviously our OEM wheels are 6x12. What other wheels have been fitted to the rear of a T70? I thought I read something about ranger wheels?

I just keep an eye out for Wheel horse and some cub rims that you can drill the extra hole in for the alignment pin.

Of course, you can use any wheel made for the old Dodge Darts. They're listed on e-bay and other places as the "small bolt pattern"
I guess the dart got a bigger bolt pattern sometime in the 70's

Yeah the old Darts and Valiants used to use the small bolt pattern,I think until 72, I had a 70 Dart that had it as did Mom's 70 Valiant, I had 2 13" chrome wheels for my Dart which I never used, wish iI knew where they wound up .... GRRRR

Also,Ford had a lot of cars in the '60s and ''70s that had the same bolt pattern.That is assuming yours had the 5 on 4.5 bolt pattern.

What about a donut? Figure the OEM tire is 6x12.. I'm looking at some 5x14's on craigslist.. Would a donut with the correct bolt pattern and offset work on those 5x14's? Or is 14" not 14"?

Wait, now I'm confused. What bolt pattern are these?
If the Cub and Wheelhorse wheels fit then they're 5x4.5". Early Mopar A-bodies (Dart, Barracuda, Valiant, Duster, etc.) are 5x4". Later A-body wheels are 5x4.5"

Old, old cub and wheelhorses... the ones with the 6x12 tires.

Pt Cruiser wheels are a metric bolt pattern. 5x100mm

My point was the small bolt pattern Dart wheels shouldn't fit any of the old GTs. Dodge wasn't using a 4" bolt circle on these rearends that went into the Panzers.
