Trim Rings

I have looked at Wheel Vintiques for a set of replacement rings. My rally wheels are 15X7. I see on their web catalog, 3001-15-7 and
3001-A-7. I'm not understanding the difference in these two.

I'm the fellow with FW wheels on a 67 Camaro Convertible. Which of these two model rings do I need to go with? My center caps are the Flat ones (67 Disc Brakes). Just need to know from someone that has experience in these rings. I can't tell the difference from the picture.
Thanks,
Pop

Re: Trim Rings

How are we to recommend a trim ring for you when you don't post either a link or a pic?.....I can tell you for sure that your FW wheels will need 2 1/2" deep rings with a flat edge!


Also, be advised that some of Wheel Vintiques trim rings are designed to fit their own ralley wheels!....I remember purchasing a set of Wheel Vintiques "SS" ralley wheels for my 70 Chevelle SS454 and I had to purchase their special trim rings to fit these wheels, they cost like 30 something a piece!.....The difference is that these special rings are tapered and an original ring just wouldn't fit!

3001-A 7" O.E.M. STYLE
Rim Size: Fits: O.E.M. Steel Wheels (matches 8" O.E.M. Style),
Matches O.E. 15x8 Corvette Rallye applications,
but fits 7" wheels

Will these fit the 15X7 FM Rallys?

You mean FW wheels correct?......You can't even make out those small pictures of the rings however it would appear that those OEM rings would be the correct ones.....You need to make sure that they are 2 1/2" wide for the FW wheel.....The 15" X 8" Vette wheel uses a 3" wide trim ring and these wouldn't look right on a 15" X 7" wheel!
