Question

I have 5 15x7 Rallys in my basement. The date code is illegible due to the paint on the wheels, but I can make out the application code FW. Does anyone know what these were originally on?

Thx.

I believe these are the Monte Carlo wheels I read about at CRG. They are the most common wheels. I have a pair of them myself.

Question

Is the backspacing similar to a 15x7 for a camaro? Or will it require a spacer?

According to Alan Colvin's 70-75 book, the FW code Monte Carlo rally wheels have the same specs as the AU code Camaro wheels.

AU??? Don't find that one listed. Do you mean AD (15x7 JJ Rally Z/28 '69)?

AU is the code for the 70-75 15x7 Camaro rally wheel. We're talking about the same wheel, 2nd generation. The FW code didn't show up in Colvin's 65-69 book.

The reason it didn't show up is ,the F W didn't come out till '71. It's commonly called a Monte Carlo rally.
