I have seen people talking about wheels for disc brake cars and then wheels for drum brakes. Is there a difference? I have a 68. The front are disc and the rear drums, are these wheels interchangeable? I need to pick up a wheel for a spare and now am confused, I thought any o 14 steel wheel (rim) would work?

Here's what I know, in 67 there were two different wheels, one for disc and one for drum. In 68 up all wheels were made to fit disc or drum. If your car came with disc, then all five wheels would have been for disc in 67.
