Wheel decode
« on: February 17, 2011, 04:15:15 PM »
Can someone decode this wheel date for me?

m4  10  2  YA
8

Not sure about m4... but is it; 10/2/68?

Thanks

Just found out what the M stands for so I think all I need is the 4. I think this would be the name of the plant ???

It's probably the Motor Wheel plant location; their headquarters plant was in Lansing, Michigan.

How far in advance of the build date of the car should the wheel dates be?

I'd say at least a week; Motor Wheel had to stamp them, weld them, paint them, and ship them; those wheels weren't painted at the assembly plant.
