Rollerboy,
Although I've seen 63's with Split Rims, I'm not sure if the trailer would have come that way. My 59 Ambassador International came to me with the more modern regular (non split) rim, however I suspect it left the factory with Split Rims. As Split Rims originally came satin black, with the outer "split" portion of the rim painted silver, I opted to repaint the all black wheels with a silver outer edge to simulate the split rim look. I have had many people compliment them, as it adds a certain amount of subtle "zing" to an otherwise boring wheel.
Have fun,
Colin
