Rally Wheels

I am taking the wheels that came with my Camaro off (dont know brand, center cap has M on it) some sort of off brand TT and would like to purchase Rally Wheels. The Combo I am looking at:

Front: Vintiques Corvette/Camaro Rally 15x7 with 4.5 in Back Space and BFG Radial TA's in 225/60/15

Rear: Vintiques Corvette/Camaro Rally 15x8 with 4.5 in Back Space and BFG Radial TA's in 275/60/15

I have front Disk and rear drums with a stock ride height. I want to put on a Hotchkis 2" lower spring in frond and a 1.5" lower spring in the rear.

Please Help!

Re: Rally Wheels

Is it possible that's a W on that wheel? Might be Westerns. Might be someone on here interested in purchasing the old ones if your inclined to sell.

Re: Rally Wheels

You might want to consider 255's or 245's in the back. JMO. The back spacing on the front should be fine, not sure on the back, but sounds good. Someone else can verify.

Re: Rally Wheels

In my experience you can get more tire in the back of a 1967 or 1968 than you can a 1969. I run P235/60/R15 on 15x7 Chrome Rally's all the way around on my car. To get a P275/60/R15 in the back, the springs & vehcile ride would have to be unaltered (lowered).

Re: Rally Wheels

215/65/15 front or 225/60/15 is good, but I agree, 255/60/15 is a better look, a bit less dia, fits well esp. with the drop springs.

this is the 215/65 and 255/60 combo--



Hmm... I think it's time I dig those rims out again, I haven't run them for a few years...

Re: Rally Wheels

I agree.I sometimes run 255/60/15 on the rear of my 67 15x8/ 4” back space Rallies and they fit perfect. And 225/60/15 on 15x7 /4” back space Rallies on front with drum brakes no problems.

Re: Rally Wheels

The the 215/65 and 255/60 does look good. 68sixspeed, what are your rim specs? I like the sound of a 225/60 and 255/60 I am only concerned with having even looking side wall heights and how chubby the wheels look on the rim. Makes me think 7" and 8" with 4.5" of BS.

yes, I'm thinking it was 4.25" or 4.5" backspace rear (I know I've run both backspaces at different times between street and drag tires), 4 or 4.25" backspace front. It's been a few years, but I know it's in some old posts here somewhere.... The fronts were monte-carlo rally rims if my memory is right. -Dan

Re: Rally Wheels

Too bad you're in VA. I just took a set of rally wheels off my '67. 2-15x8 with 235/60/15 and 2 15x7 with 215/65/15. Bf goodrich tires 50% wear with trim rings and center caps. They're going in the garage sale in next week.

Re: Rally Wheels

I have 225/60/15 on 15X7 w/4.125 BS on the front and 245/60/15 on 15X8 w/4.5 BS on the rear of my 69. I have Global west lowering springs front and rear with the same brakes you have. There is enough room to run 255's on the back and I haven't had any rubbing issues up front either. I'm about 1.5 -2 hrs south if you want to look at them in person before you decide.

suggestion--- try to find 15x8's for the rear otherwise the tire is kind of buldgy on the sidewalls. -Dan
