Rally wheel trim rings

I had 15x7s all around my RS. They had original rings that had the extra step in the outer ring face. I like that look. Just put new sneaks on it and used a vette 15x8 on the rear with 255 60s. Like that look a lot, but the rally wheel ring is smooth all around. Did GM make a stepped ring for 15x8 wheels? Or, is there an original application where the 15x7 ring was not stepped? I want them to match one way or the other and want original equipment, not aftermarket. I intend on trying out the 15x7 ring on the 15x8 wheel for a test.

You need 3" on the 15x8 rims. See the link below for them

Re: Rally wheel trim rings

You should check out the wheel section of all the major Camaro parts suppliers. Ricks, NPD, Classic, etc. If it was made they sell them. They also sell custom rings if not mistaken.

Would like to see a better pic of those....they do appear to be stepped ? Price seems awfully cheap !

My understanding is GM never produced a stepped beauty ring for 15x8's.

I have a stepped set of Original GM 15x8 on my car for the last 15 years. Those on Ebait do look stepped and are very cheap priced. We know that the stainless is probably not the same gauge and clips are all the way around the ring but,,,,,,,

Re: Rally wheel trim rings

1200 bucks for trim rings, I think not. Pete Estes better be hand delivering them in an 82 Deloreon driven by John Deloreon himself.

Agree with the stepped rings as GM original. I bought a set of the 15x8 wheels with stepped rings and caps in '88. Think I paid $110 for them. The rings had quite a bit of curb rash so I bought a set of stepped 2" rings. I prefer the look over the 3" ring. Just a personal preference.

Are those same as used on 15x7 ? That's what I have on all 4 corners, but they don't look quite right on the 8" aftermaket , 4.5" bs rear wheels.

Where exactly is the 3" measured from ? Any pix ??

Re: Rally wheel trim rings

Here's a couple pix of mine, 15x8, 4.5 bs and GM rings....



I measure 2 5/8" to the top step or 3" overall. These were NOS and came with the refurbished FW (15x7) wheels I bought years ago as a kit.



As you can see, there's quite a gap, about 1 3/8" between the ring and the wheel center.

I'd settle for Pete Estes in a 68Z with the top down and a keg in the back....hic...

Always a tough crowd here on TC Easy to tell originals..as they have 4 clips and an oval hole for the air nozzle. Looking at the 15x7 pic posted..they look somewhat straight from edge to inner lip where mine look rounded .

Re: Rally wheel trim rings

Yeah, looks to be a different style....I'm thinking yours are 'Vette ? What size wheels do you have in front ? Same trim rings as in the back ??

Oh... , and where do you measure 3" at, on top or overall ?
