    Early vs. late wheels?

    Looking to go to 15 x 6 at all four corners to replace my 14's......saw an ad that states" late 3 prong cap".....? Can some1 explain the diffs bet early and late and if one is preferred?....TIA

    Late 3 prong? That is odd as the early design was 3 prong and went to a circumferential spring clip in 74 or 75 (I think). Any deep six will be 3 prong

    Maybe the seller is confused. Nick, otherwise is there any visual differences bet the wheels w/ different style cap connectors?

    Hi Joel

    Not the best pictures but they should clarify the difference. Early 3 prong (3mm lip, then recess) on the top, later style (small groove) below
