I recently bought a 1969 Lemans Blue Camaro.Old drag car and has some mystery of what it was originally.One thing I'm haveing problems with is the 4 15x7 ralleys on it.All 4 have FW stamped on them and one has FW and XT on it.K18 is on them too.Axles are 9142 with the letters FZ on ends.12B on cowel tag for date.Has rare rear sway bar.What the hell does FW and XT stand for,can't find it in any of my Camaro books.
Thanks Dan

I believe FW was introduced in mid 1970 and was used on the Monte Carlo

So why a 68 date code ,K18 and a 8 and then a 9 stamped on either side of valve stem is and where FW is.If this was a 1970 wheel then wouldn't it be K10 and there is K18 stamped where lug nuts go,2 spots where K18 is found on each wheel.I believe these are the original wheels since they predate the 12B on cowel tag.This is a 69 Camaro with a build date of December 2nd week 1968.
I need a wheel expert since these are something special and out of the ordinary.Could they be rims for a rear disc brake car?

YH was the code for 69 15x7 Ralley wheel. FW might have been used on Nova or Chevelle
