Rally Wheels On a 69

I picked up a set of rally wheels 15x7(4.25 BS) and 15x8(4.50BS). can someone post up pics with this set up. Trying to decide on which size tire. Thinking about 225/60/15 and 255/60/15. Thanks

Re: Rally Wheels On a 69

Welcome Daryl! While I cannot help with the tire selection, based on the rim size, you have a FW 15x7 from a Monte Carlo and probably a 15x8 from a vette. You might have some trouble with matching the trim rings that fit those rims. The 15x7's are easy, same as a Z, but the vette trim rings that fit the 15x8 have a different profile. Maybe someone here with that combo has some advice.

Re: Rally Wheels On a 69

Daryl,
Attached is a photo of that exact wheel/tire combination. I did not spring for the wider trim rings for the 8" wheels in the rear and instead used the trim rings from my original 7" rims. I think the 8" trim rings have more of a rounded shape as they transition over the edge of the rim whereas rings for my 7" wheels had a sharper transition and I did not want to mix those shapes. I've since changed wheels and tires, but the rally wheels with BFG's worked very well for many years.

Re: Rally Wheels On a 69

Thats the exact look I want. I did pick up the 3 inch rings for the back and 2.5 for the front. Ill have to see if I like that when i get my tires and get them mounted on the car. Beautiful car BTW.

Thats the exact look Im going for. I ended up getting the 3 inch rings for the back but might change them after I see how they look. Beautiful car BTW

Re: Rally Wheels On a 69

When I bought my '69 ragtop it had 235/60/15's on all 4 corners with 15x7 4.25 bs (FW and YH designated) I put Vette 15x8's on the back with 255/60's and the tires rubbed the fender lip so put the 255's back on the 15x7's. My car sat lower than Chris' though. I also ran the 7" trim rings on the 8" wheels for the short time they were on the car.

Re: Rally Wheels On a 69

I have the Vette wheels on all 4 corners running 235/60 and 255/60 stock height and no rubbing issues. I really like the look of the deep 8" wheels over the 7". . . . JMO
