Type and Color of 68 Rally?

I need help identifying these rally's and knowing how to proceed in restoration. Correct paint, etc. The center caps are the cookie cutter type. Any help is appreciated.

Those are second gen wheels, not 1st. Color may be Argent silver, Never shot a set before.

Thanks for that...

I am a bit confused on the wheel codes. Would XN wheels be correct? Or could I also use FI wheels? I have drum brakes on the Camaro and the build date is the Fourth Week of December.

Re: Type and Color of 68 Rally?

a friend of mine had those wheels on his used 1979 Camaro back in the day....I believe they are 14x6 Rally's....

As far as your 1968 I would go with a 14x6 Rally or 15x7 Rally if you want the correct look...Many companies offer the wheel already painted so all you need to do is mount & balance a tire and you are good to go.

Yea, I checked and the rims are code AV which by the search list puts it at 70-72 for camaro's and nova's.

Re: Type and Color of 68 Rally?

I found some wheels coded: K 1 2 11 13 FW along the air valve hole
and on the lug nut hole area it reads: GM K 1 2 M
and on the inside of the wheel it reads: 15x7 JJ K 1 2

My search showed it looks like these are maybe to a Monte Carlo or FW 15X7 BS-4 1/4 71-up most any GM

Can anyone help confirm this code on wheels?
