Talking Fooling around with rally wheels...

Man...is it me or do these early 2nd Gen rally wheels look great on everything.?.






GM got it right in 1971-72,but never offered these 15-inchers on 1970.
I personally think they look better than the original SS wheels...those were 14" of course:

That wheel was available in 70 in 15" on the Z28, but not on the Chevelle until '71. They look good on most, but I've seen some apps that don't look so great. Of course it's all subjective.

Technically speaking, this is what is considered the 2nd gen/style rally wheel:

Re: Fooling around with rally wheels...

Well you're right...I should have said "early 2nd Gen Z/28 rally wheel"...since those are from my '70 Z/28.
My bad.

I would agree with that. Had 'em on a '69 Chevelle, '70 Nova, '81 Malibu... looked good on all of these cars. The only downside of that wheel is that it has to be one of the HEAVIEST steel rims ever made. Those things weigh a ton!

John, you could put those cars on bricks and they would still look good.
