Re: Best place to buy Rally Wheels

Hit your local (large) swap meets... I always see them in our area and can buy them reasonably, sometimes even good codes...

Re: Best place to buy Rally Wheels

The 15x8 really need to be 4.5" backspace to fit properly, which Chevrolet never produced. Vette 15x8 are 4"bs, so aftermarket would be the way to go. Can't hardly beat Summit and there free shipping and no hassle returns if needed. Wheel Vintiques are probably the best quality aftermarket RW.

Re: Best place to buy Rally Wheels

I have 15x8 Vette wheels on my 69 and they work fine. When I measured the BS it was 4.5.

Re: Best place to buy Rally Wheels

It depends on tire size of course. Are you sure the 15x8 are 4.25 bs ? I have 215/65 in the front with 7", 4.25" bs and 255/60 on 8", 4.5" bs in the rear with no problem however the rear are close to rubbing the outer ww lip.

Re: Best place to buy Rally Wheels

What I'm saying is, if I had a 1/4" less bs (4.25") on the rear with the same tires, chances are much greater I'd have a rubbing issue on the wheel well lip.

Have you compared the prices with Summit ? I doubt Classic Industries will be any cheaper, especially with the shipping fees. Plus Summit does offer Wheel Vintique, so at least you know you're getting the best.

BTW, a lot of 67/8 folks use 220/60 in the front. They're just slightly wider and shorter than the 215/65.

Re: Best place to buy Rally Wheels

Garth, I don't know the application. I bought them from a guy that had a 77 Vette , I got them for a $100 bucks in 78 and been running them on the Vert for all these years, way before I knew anything about the details. 245/60/15 and 225/60/15 BFG RWL. Stock height.

Re: Best place to buy Rally Wheels

The next time you have a trim ring off, would you mind looking for the code please ?

There was a time I would've luved to have had a pair of factory (hub centric) 15x8, 4.5" bs rally wheels, but come to the conclusion they never did exist. Vettes had 15x8 RW's from '69 until about '75, but all I've ever seen are 4" bs which are AZ coded...

edit; ..and the above post there, Ryan is a typo. I meant 225/60.

Re: Best place to buy Rally Wheels

Be careful where you buy the trim rings from. I ordered complete rims/trim rings, and center caps from Classic Industries. All was fine except for the trim rings. The chrome had a bronze tint to it, like the chrome was not thick enough and the copper base was showing through. I complained to Classic Industries about them and they did nothing (made in China)
