Chick,  When you were done with your wheels did you have any problems seeing the date codes. My problem is the stamping is so lite I feel a couple coats of paint will make them unreadable.
Sorry I missed this question originally! No, no problem on mine but in many cases its just masking off the area and keeping that area very light with paint.

Thanks Chick, It looks like your wheels were stamped with a lot heaver hand than mine were. I definitely will mask that section off as to not get too much paint there. And I'll also take a good picture of the stamping on each wheel before I do any painting or powder coating.

Does the standard procedure apply to YA SS wheels as well, were they masked/painted at the assembly plants, reason I ask is I have never see an original paint YA with anything other than gray on the reverse.

I think you're seeing Service wheels, which were painted grey so they wouldn't rust in depot storage. Wheels were jammed by the thousands herringbone-style in rail cars, and if they were final-painted at Kelsey-Hayes, they'd have been badly nicked, chipped, and scratched before they ever got to the tire mount/balance equipment. You had to be there to understand what a rail car full of wheels looked like when they opened it.

I did a little research and The NORWOOD built 69 Trans Ams survivors which have been unearthed have grey backed Ralley II's.

Pontiac used a different wheel supplier.
