15 inch rally wheel trim rings

I need to replace my wheel trim rings, was hoping someone can recommend a good place that they have ordered from. Thanks.

Don't know where to get them, but the OER rings are not good. They move around on the wheel.

Re: 15 inch rally wheel trim rings

Thanks, I will stay away from those.

Was hoping to hear some positive feedback from yearone.com, heartbeatcitycamaro.com or classicindustries.com

Re: 15 inch rally wheel trim rings

Wheel Vintiques is probably your best bet for aftermarket. Stay away from the 360* tooth style
as they tear up the wheels pretty badly and many have had problems with the fit. Wheel Vintiques
does a pretty job stating what wheels their rings fit.
Here's one supplier. These have prongs. Not teeth. If you have aftermarket wheels these may not work.

Which ones in particular? I know there's a few different options.

The OER ones I got were 15/7 factory flat bead. They have the ring with the clips all around. I don't care about them tearing up the paint on the wheels. After all they cover up the scratches. They just don't stay put . They will move as you drive. That pushes them against the valve stem.

Re: 15 inch rally wheel trim rings

I bought some 15x8 corvette trim rings for my truck from corvette central that I really like. I might by some of these 15x7 ones for my car ralleys. https://www.corvettecentral.com/67-6...s%26count%3d27

The ones in your link look exactly like the OER rings I bought. The mounting tabs don't hold tight against the wheel. Causing them to walk on the wheel at highway speeds. Everytime I drive my car I have to take the rings off and re center them. The push against the valve stems. I'm scared they will slice a stem. Will be replacing them as soon as I find a correct and quality replacement.

Re: 15 inch rally wheel trim rings

I'd be looking into the ones from Summit, that Al posted. They look the same as OE, including mounting clips, at a reasonable price and you can't beat Summit's customer service or free shipping (over $100).

Just a tip, I had OEM's on my last car and just placed three small strips of duct tape at 12, 5 and 9 o clock positions and they stayed put.

Pulled the trigger on the rings from Summit. They look good with the exception of the valve stem hole. The bright part looks good, but the metal backing needs trimming. Spent a few minutes with the did grinder and all is well . I drove 300 miles in my car today to and from an out of state car show. They didn't move. So I guess they are ok.

Sorry, not the best light. I went just over 300 miles at about 70 mph and they didn't move. I'm happy with them and they do look flash chrome.
