I bought a set of rally wheel derby caps from him. They are nice reproductions and he shipped them out fast. Can't comment on the wheels only the caps. I never had any problems with him.

While going through a short period of anguish on what wheels to buy recently, I cam across him on Ebay. I actually talked with him for a few minutes. Seemed more like a business guy than a car guy, but nice enough. My concern was back spacing, and he said he could get them custom for...I believe... $30 more per wheel. I never asked him about chrome layering, but that was my only concern. Hell, even if they chipped badly after two or three years, you could buy another set at that price and still come out OK. They look pretty decent to me.

You should have both. Get the ones you want the most first. Why wouldnt you want both? You should change wheels like you would a tie.

Re: Any one buy rally's from Rallywheelman on Ebay?

I bought a set of rallys from this guy a couple of years ago. The brand he sells is wheel vintiques. They aren't a bad wheel but I have heard of people having problems with the wheel(s) being out of round. I didn't have a problem with mine and they balanced up nicely. They are multi lug wheels, so if you're cool with that, I'd go ahead and buy them. I bought 15x7 front w/4" BS and 15x8 w/4.5 BS. I used BFG T/A's 215/65-15 front and 255/60-15 rear. They fit perfect.

1968 Camaro Coupe: Forged 383, AFR heads, Edelbrock Air-Gap intake, Holley 750 dp, Dynatech headers (557 HP/543 TQ), TKO-600, 12 Bolt 3.73, Vintage Air.

Re: Any one buy rally's from Rallywheelman on Ebay?

One thing to watch on some of the reproduction wheels is whether they are hub-centric or lug-centric. This means they are either centered by the center hole (hub-centric) which is better, or centered by the lug nuts (lug-centric) which can be a problem. All OEM wheels, that I'm aware of, are hub-centric.

Re: Any one buy rally's from Rallywheelman on Ebay?

It doesn't matter unless some State Safety Inspector catches that they aren't hub-centric and they are supposed to be.

It happened to me after I installed brand new radials on some 6" wide MOPAR rims on my '64 Ford Fairlane S/W to up-grade it and the SOB wouldn't pass me! So I went back home and got my wore-out stockwheels and tires and installed them in the lot and he passed me!!

Then I proceeded to re-install my new tires and wider rims and that was that!!

I NEVER went in the f-- place again after that! AND I drove that old car like that for years and years!!!!

So go figure!!

I only mention it because you hear about a lot of guys thinking they have a vibration or maybe a bent wheel, and it turns out they are running lug-centric wheels. I have seen them have a different run-out every time you tighten the lug nuts.
