    Rallye Wheels

    Anyone know a good spot to get some rallye wheels for a decent price?

    Something like these:

    If you want originals - factory GM 15x7s - I'd try places like Hemmings Motor News classifieds. A "for sure" score is the Carlisle Car Show/Swap meet up in PA...

    The nice thing about the repros is they're available in 15x8s.

    Not now, but in the future I am going back to basic steel rims. I have some Weld's Racing rims on my unit now. They are a bitch to deal with. First off they were expensive, not even to mention extremely hard to balance, easily get dirty, and by far are the hardest rims I've ever bolted up to a car!

    I'm thinking about going 15x7, but I might have to do 15x8 so the fat beauty rings (3" deals) fit. I need to double check all this.

    Those stock GM Rally wheels look sharp - and of course, each division had its own style (with different trim rings and center caps). I have an idea for you:

    Do you remember the '80s-era Monte Carlo SS? It had the same 15x7 aluminum mags used on the '80-'81 Z28. Those looked great and would look awesome on your car, in my opinion.

    They're lighter than Rallys, too.

    Wonder if those can pack into the front wheel wells.

    I think they'd fit. They're only 15x7s and your car is probably close enough to the layout of the cars that had those wheels as OEM equipment.

    Too bad you're not just down the street because I have a spare 15x7 Honeycomb wheel (same dimensions) and we could test fit it. I bet with an original-size 225/70 tire or thereabouts you'd be good to go!

    Wonder how much a set in excellent condition would run?

    Those are nice looking wheels! I think the original Corvette sizes ('60s and '70s) were 15x7 and (maybe) 15x8. The backspacing, though, I'm not sure about. I can't remember whether it was the same as other GM wheels of the era. Do they have a tech line you can ask?

    They have whatever backspacing you want.

    I'm thinking 3.5" backspacing and 15x7.

    I emailed them asking about a package deal.

    I'll let you know.
