Stock Steel Rims with Hubcaps would be common even on a RS/SS. I have pics for a 1 owner original paint rs/ss convertible with stock steel 14 inch wheels.

Re: 67 rs/ss

The (solid) steel 14 inch wheel was rare as those who ordered disc brakes also ordered the rally wheels (95% of cars are ordered not by customers but by the sales manager who bought cars on spec hoping to sell them before the floor plan came due). As such he always ordered things that were popular nor solid steel wheels. This make Camaro 14 inch solid steel wheel to clear a disc brake as rare as COPO 427 car.

Most rally wheels clear 1969 full floating single piston disc brakes. The 1967-'68 Camaro with four piston (Girling style) fixed bridge calipers had 15 inch wheels.

My two 67's w/4 piston disc calipers have the 14" DG rims.

Re: 67 rs/ss

I measured an unmounted 14x6 DG rally wheel from a 67 RS/SS with original factory disc brakes, and the backspacing appears to be 4-1/2 inches, with the total rim width at 7 inches. As Scott asked earlier, are you going with the factory 4-piston caliper disc brake setup, or something else?

Re: 67rs/ss

Are you going with OEM or other brakes? Came with 14x6 rally with short cap. Go to CRG for all the details on first gen Camaros.
