any one make 17x10 rallys 1rst gen.??

I have a mini tubbed 67 camaro conv.
dse says that 315 would fit best but here lies my problem..
I want the ralley wheel in steel and a 315/35/17 tire..(cant afford billet)
I can only find 17x9!! ( wheel vintique) for a custom offset
The tire calls for a 10.5-11 rim width
Can anyone help me????

i have the wheel vintiqes 17x9's on the rear. you could have stockton wheel widen them for you, but it will run into almost the same money for the billet. if you can afford those tires, then you can afford the billet! i'm only kidding... the steel is VERY heavy and hurt your performance anyway. i kinda wish i went with the billet...

ideally, i would have a 17x9 1/2 with 5 1/2 inch backspace, but they only make the 17x9 with 5 inch backspace, which i had to trim the fender lip for. the rubber is mt street radials at 275/40r17, which look ok, but i would perfer the look on the 9 1/2 inch width. i don't think anything bigger than a 275 would look good on a 9 inch width. too much bigger, like 315's might be downright unsafe.

good luck with the wide steel wheel you are not going to find it. I have been looking for 6 months for a 18x12 and it aint happening. Only option is a CUSTOM (read expensive) wheel

I don't think you can find a 315/35r16
the widest low profile 16" tire I have found is 255, cant even find a 275

So, I would keep looking for 17" rims
