I'm not so sure both will work!?!? Would be interesting to have at least one person identify that early of a car had those type trim rings. Can you post a picture of what you purchased?
Here are some pics of the trim rings I thought were purchased in 1979 but actually the ship date is Sept. 1980. Invoice has no date, hence the picture of the UPS label. These were purchased for our 68Z.

Those trims have the correct looking valve stem hole, and the correct looking clips.   
How wide is the trim ring, Chick??   My parts book says that trim is only 1-3/4" wide and is for a 6" wide rallye...??

I should have clarified that both will work at the Nationals as Jerry mentioned.

Yes Gary, they are 1 3/4" wide and for the 67/68 DF 15X6 rally wheel. Good eye and why I took the picture that way as I thought later version wheel clips were installed and oriented differently. I always found it interesting that a 67 DC (Corvette) 15X6 was not the same trim ring as the DF 15X6 but the same trim ring as the 69Z wheels......

The trim rings that were on my '68 Z28 i 1974 when I purchased it were wider than 1-3/4"..  I would have to measure them to see how wide.  They were less width than the '69 trim ring, and the valve stem opening 'opens' all the way to back of the trim ring (ie. like a U shape).   I still have 3 of those trims, so I will take some photos and measurements and post them.

This is what I thought was an older designed 4 clip and orientation but for sure no expert and not 100% sure. Note how the clip is imbedded in the metal!

Further to this post,- Today I stripped some original YH wheels dated K-1-9-1-28 YH and there was no evidence of the gouging on the rims that the finger/serrated type trim ring makes.

I just looked at an original paint, original owner 69 Z. 05A NOR.
Fingers on all wheels, all parts are original and show only finger gouges on the wheel.
Very solid datapoint.

As I mentioned in previous threads I believe that both at some point where used on the 69 z's.  It is always good to agree to disagree and move on to the next fun subject.  Hope everyone is having a great summer!!!
