camaro XT wheels . . . similar to others? Characteristics please!

There is a wheel at a local yard. It looks like an xt wheel?

it has a deeper offset than other rims. I can't find any codes or dates on it.

IT has two ridges on the face where the trim rings would grab on to the rim in 4 places 90 degrees apart.

Would this be similar to the xt wheels?

I found a dog dish XT cap in the back of the car this wheel was on.

What are the characteristics of the XT wheels besides the codes that would be stamped on them?

Thanks

Re: camaro XT wheels . . . similar to others? Characteristics please!

First be sure you are looking at a 7 inch wide rim. There are 5 or 6 different 14x7 steel wheel codes that were made for GM cars, but only the XT and the IF wheels have the rounded wheel center part that sort of follows the curvature of the outer rim that it fits into. The rest of the wheels have more nearly square centers so you will get the effect of having a square peg design fitting into the round center of the outer rim. As far as having ridges at four places 90 degrees apart, that is not an indication of an XT wheel, or any other 14x7 that I have seen.

The only reason someone would want insurance is if they want to pay someone elses bills or want someone else to pay their bills.
