SS repro wheel pix on 1969 camaro

Just thought I'd post some pix of the ss wheels monted on my car...They are 15x6 in the front and 15x8s on the rear...Great quality and balance perfectly

Great choice, Mike. I like the subtle big/little look and the move up to the 15" size. If you get a chance, please post the vendor and/or part numbers on those wheels and trim rings, plus the tire sizes.

Re: SS repro wheel pix on 1969 camaro

OK guys and thanks...The front wheels are 15x6 with 4 3/8 backspacing...Tires on them are 225 70 15s...Rears are 15x8 with 5 inches of backspacing...Those tires are 275 60 15s...My car is minitubbed with the leafs moved in a bit so I can fit a lot more tire in there...The rear end is not narrowed though...It's the factory 12 bolt with 3.73s...I bought the wheels from Jegs...I got the center caps and retainers from Classics Unlimited...Mike Walker there is a friend of mine...The trim rings are cheapies and are 2.5 inches deep...They look identical to original ss trim rings too with the flat edges...You can buy them on ebay for $66 shipped...I bought them new from a used parts place here in town but they told me that they came from ebay (which I could have done). Mike has them but they are about $100...Don't buy them from Jegs or summit because you'll pay about $135 for them and they are identical in every way to these, including the box...I bought 1 from them just to see

John, you are killing me, man!!! Go to Summit and look them up, which is what I did...I then called Jegs and ordered them because they do stock them although they don't show them on their site...I could have ordered them from Summit but I prefer Jegs because they just seem to ship quicker and have never screwed anything up with regard to sending the wrong stuff...I wanted 6s because it helps eliminate any outside front tire rub...

I'm not trying to kill you, I'm just trying to find the wheel... You said Jegs and I only saw the 7's. I'll try summit as you mentioned
