Buy original rallys or new style wheels?

Just about to finish the resto on a '67 RS and it's time for wheels. One friend likes the original look of rallys and another likes new ARs. Hmmm. Now I can't decide either. Who want to vote for original or extra crispy? Help me decide, guys !

Re: Buy original rallys or new style wheels?

if you kept the stock ride height - original look of rallys...

if you lowered it - something new...

Re: Buy original rallys or new style wheels?

I agree. If it's stock looking on the inside & out go for the original Rally's. I like the Rally's. Always have, always will. But if it's the resto-mod/pro-touring look American Racing wheels will look nice too.

Whatever you do, don't put IROC-Z wheels on it. I love IROC's but IROC wheels on a first gen? Yuck!!

Yes, it's all stock inside and out. Driven by a UofI professor for 30 years! Now that we're thinking rallys, do you guys have a favorite place to buy them?

You can buy them at www.drclassic.com or www.thepartsplaceinc.com
I bought two 15x8 Rally's from the parts place and they are sitting in my garage. They sell them painted in various sizes the correct factory grey/gray/silver.

that's an expensive venture with billets. wheel vintiques also makes cheaper steel rally wheels in modern sizes. mine are 17x8 in front, 17x9 in the rear. they are heavier, but remarkably cheaper. heres a pic...

Re: Buy original rallys or new style wheels?

Check Ebay under "wheels,tires, and parts". Then search for Camaro or ralley wheels. You can generally find a complete set with rings and caps for $200-$250.
