1970 Rally Wheels and Disc Brakes

Hi Everyone:

The 1967 Camaro I inherited from my late brother has five spoke GM rally wheels (Code AU). I want to upgrade the car to disc brakes but I'm concerned about whether they will accept disc brakes. I've read multiple posts but cannot find a concrete "yes, this wheel will accept disc brakes" answer.

If the answer is out there, I'm sorry, I missed. it. But does anyone here know the answer?

Thanks.

From the code I saw on another thread on the forum, they are "70, 71, 73 Camaro Z28 5 spoke wheel." Check my profile for a picture of them.

to some extent . what disc conversion do you plan to use ? I'm sure giant brembos aren't fitting in those rims . second gen spindles and brake Assemblies used to be out there in the thousands as the attrition rate and production #s of the second gen were big .
