Supersport Wheels

I was looking at the supersport wheels at Ground Up and was wondering if anyone knew when these became available as an option and what the option was based on?

Re: Supersport Wheels

Those look like the wheels off of a 1969 or 1970 Chevelle SS like these two







Or 1969 SS Camaro like this one ok it's an RS/SS but you get the idea




The wheel size was 14x7.....These were SS only wheels and required a 350 or larger engine...396 BBC cars came with these as well...I think F70x14 was the OE size and that also includes the legendary 1970 454 LS6 Chevelle!! F70x14 equates to a P225/60R14 in a radial tire.....FWIW I had P245/60/R14 on a 14x6 Rally on my old 1969 Camaro up front and I had no rubbing issues..........I've seen many more Chevelle's with those wheels than Camaro's. It seems the Camaro guys prefer the 15x7 Rally's when going for the OE look....Chevelle guys prefer the 14x7 SS wheel....The COPO Camaro guys prefer the OE dish dish hub caps on plain steel wheels from what I have seen... I hope this info helps! and here's a helpful Chevelle link http://www.chevelles.com/shop/ss_ident.html Happy Motoring!!

P.S. I believe they became an option beginning in 1969. And it required the SS option which required at least a 350 4 bbl and in most cases either a 396 for Camaro's & Chevelle's in 1969, or a 350, 396 and a 454 for Chevelle's in 1970.

Re: Supersport Wheels

For 69 Camaro, they were RPO N66.

Re: Supersport Wheels

Scott -

RPO ZJ7 Rally Wheels have nothing to do with the Rally Sport package.

The base wheel for all cars were steel wheels with either the dog dishes (aka poverty caps) or one of the optional wheel covers. The exception to this is the Z28, which had the rally wheels included as part of the package.

So on an original 69 RS/SS, if it was built before the cutoff (thought to be Jan 69) it could have steelies with hubcaps or wheel covers, the N66 Sport Wheels, or the ZJ7 Rallys, depending on how much the dealer/owner wanted to spend. After the cutoff, N66 wheels were no longer a choice.

Re: Supersport Wheels

So, if the RPO N66 wheels were discontinued in late 1968, could they have been ordered on a mid-year or late-year 1968 SS?
