Just thought I'd try a test to see how it looked.

Funny thing is, the color of the rim looks very similar to the original color of my interior!

I think it looks nice.
So is it a '58 wheel?

If you do decide to keep it in your car, just my opinion I think it would look even better if you painted it to match your car.

Deluxe wheels are very beautiful and should be on all 1958 Plymouth's! Marc.

Love it! I really like it better than the 57's. I'd make it permanent.

Thanks everyone, I do really like the deluxe wheels too, my only concern is the glare from the chrome horn ring on sunny days gets to be troublesome, I remember that issue from when I had my sedan.

Thanks Jackie, 57-58 deluxe wheels are the same except the 57 center is gold and the 58 is silver. I find it surprising that the color matched the original color of the dash but I would definitely paint it to match the current color now, I think I will keep the grips original though. Smile

You are welcome. Very Happy

Yes, it does sound surprising that the color of the wheel matched the original color of your dash.
So was this wheel original in your car?

No, the original is the standard non power 57 wheel

Oh, I see...
So now I see why it is so surprising then that the deluxe wheel you have in now is the same color as the color your dash originally was. Very Happy
I guess the car that your deluxe wheel came out of was the same color as your car?

Yes it would be interesting to see that car.
For now, lets just call that car that your wheel came from the "Mystery Car". Very Happy
