The hub cap may be Dodge but the rest of the wheel is perhaps "Motor Wheel" or one of the other wheel manufacturers. 

I do not understand how a hub and/or felloe would be different from each other another.

The spokes look like they might be new and if so the photo is showing a space at the end of the spoke that should not be there.  From the photo if this were my wheel and it was newly re-spoked I would want it redone at no charge and certainly would not drive the car on this wheel.

Thanks for the reply. The spokes are new but they were done by someone a long time ago thus the shrinkage. I have no idea why someone would interchange the two but I would assume they used what they had. I am not running them.

Thank goodness.  They might serve on a trailer queen but who would know when someone might go for a drive.  

I am not sure if shrinkage was the problem.  My original (90 year and 500,000 mile) "Jaxon" wheels have the shoulder of the spoke radiused  to the curvature of the felloe.
