Practical Steps:
 
Step 1 - For this application on a late 1960's pony car, the wheel of choice features a mahogany wood grip, polished aluminum, three-spoke design with a billet horn ring and a black button trim ring. The wheel is 14.5-inches in diameter, has a 3-inch dish and includes a black styling sleeve. To make this work on your car you will need an installation kit. Total cost for both is around $200.00.

Step 2 - After you remove the old wheel, this is what you will see. You are now ready to install the mounting kit.

Step 3 - Position the hub on the splined shaft so that your "top" mark lines up with the hub.

Step 4 - Press down firmly on the hub with your thumb(s), pushing it down as far as it will go.

Step 5 - Now feed the two horn wires through the black post cover and the black styling sleeve. Align the three holes of the post cover and the black styling sleeve with the hub and install the three shoulder bolts provided. When tightening the three bolts, keep in mind that they are not meant to hold the wheel to the hub, but only to position the wheel to the hub.
