Has anyone seen what a 15x12 or 15x14 Ralley looks like???? Stupid or cool???

I'm building a pro-street '68 SWB and I can get a lot of wheel under it. I'm just wondering if a 15x12 or 15x14 looks good or actually looks stupid. I know in a weld wheel or anything polished, they look good deep. I'm just not sure about the 8" ring and then all that metal before hitting the Chevy caps? Any pics would be great!!!!

I would be currious as well. Often thought about rallys on my Pro street
I did find the place to get them... http://www.stocktonwheel.com
They seem to be able to do anything you want to them. I'll e-mail them maybe they have pics of stuff they did.

I know......but It's always cool when someone goes "holy sh#t.....look at those rallys". I did see a sight where you don't use the big trim ring but instead a real thin one that would be used more on a stock 6" or 7". The other thing is the rallys are A BUTT LOAD cheaper. It's gonna sting when I have to put out for the M/T's. No cheap version on the tires.

how heavy would a 15X12 steel wheel be? egad- my back hurts just thinking about it.
how about those billet rally that one company makes? do they go up to 15X12?

you don't plan sincerity.
you have to make it up on the spot.

wanna hear about 20 years ago when i was too smart to know any better?

got a pic of 15x12 rally from stockton wheel.
sure is alot of lip there.. Maybe if you had them chrome them and paint the centers it wouldn't look bad..
e-mail me to send pic i have no url add. for it.

Yup they'd be heavy but they do look cool.

Buddy with a 67 and 10" ralleys (don't know who widened them) look cool...but his has the wrong BS and stick out a few inches which isn't my taste (to each their own).

Not necessarily so. Two 15x14 Rallys from Stockton Wheel are $849 shipped, with lug nuts, center caps, and trim rings. It adds up pretty quick with all the pieces. Two 15x14 Weld prostars are only $460 (then add $35 for lugs nuts, some shipping, and center caps). Way under the $849 I was quoted.

I'm debating the same thing for my tubbed Chevelle (Rallys). I'm tired of polishing my prostars, and want something different than every other back-halved car.....
And I wasn't happy with the clear powdercoat solution.

Still debating......

I bought some (2)15x10 corvette rally's cut and widened them to width and backspacing I needed and with et streets, they looked pretty cool on my 72SWB. On the front I used 15x10 stock.......jmho...
