KL 86 I 30 xG wheels. Info please
« on: June 18, 2019, 02:17:57 PM »
I found that the XG wheel is 14 X6 with 3 7/8 back space and wider than normal drop center (what ever that means) but nothing on the other numbers.

Is there something that I missed in my search that tells me what these other numbers mean?


They are on a 67 Camaro but I have no idea if they are original to the car. All 4 are the same. 

Thanks

Well, you may have a few of the numbers wrong so you'll have to recheck them. But what you have is as follows:

K1 - Kelsey-Hayes, Romulus, MI plant
86 - you need to check this. It should be something like 8 OR 6, which indicates the year (8 = 1968 or 6 = 1966). If it really is "86", they were manufactured in 1986 and not original to the car.
1 is the month - January
30 is the day of the month
XG is the wheel type

"with 3 7/8 back space and wider than normal drop center (what ever that means) "

XG is the disc brake car equipped version vice the XN drum equipped version

I see both of these coded wheels often around numerous PNW swap meets.

 A non Z-28, 67 car with discs would use the 14x6 inch DG rally wheels
