I'm in the process of purchasing some 17" Ralleys and now find out that 17" trim rings are not available.

I did some time ago read a post about using 17" VW rings, does any one have information on that?

Is there a company making 17" rings ?

Thanks

I actually called Wheel Vintiques the other day with the same question. They said that unfortunately right now they do not have a supplier or know of a supplier for the 17" trim rings.

I saw some that were custom made, cut welded in a piece then cromed. Looked good but I was told they cost $400.00 to make!!! B/S I don't know but they were cool.

How about a fullsize truck with 17" steel wheels. Maybe some of these came with rings, but the probably would be 2 1/2" or less.

Try these guys, they have 17" trim rings, they're reproductions to fit vintage Packards so they're not GM style nor are the very wide but they appear to be very high quality and NOT cheap.
