Aftermarket Rally Wheels
« on: March 12, 2018, 09:22:18 PM »
Looked at Summit "Vision American" wheels for repro Rally's. Read some good reviews. THEN read one where the guy said the car wobbled, and that all the rims had wobbles in them when they checked them without tires. SO, with that said, anybody have an issue with these wheels good or bad? Or is there a better match for an aftermarket Rally wheel that best fits the 60's style GM wheel.. Danny

I found these on ebay & ordered a set for my 68 Project last weekend. I havent received them yet but at the price, I couldn't hardly pass them up & figured they are worth the risk. They have a 4"backspacing instead of the 4.25 but I think they will be just fine on this non pedigree car.  Good used GM rally wheels are getting much harder to come by in my neck of the woods and on ebay the prices are getting pretty steep.

The 4" back space will work fine.  I took off my original YH's since my wife drives it daily.  I ran FW's for a while but have recently changed to AR Torque Thrust originals that have 3.75" back space (basically Atlas).  Works perfectly fine with 255-60-15's on the back and 215-65-15's on the front.  It's close but it works and no rubbing.   I figured if I'm not going to run the YH's I may as well go for the day 2 look and they are nearly half the cost of what people are grabbing for rallys at the swap meets, not even rare coded wheels, that's just crazy.

Thanx guys.. We need 15 X 6 with 4" backspace minimum. I emailed that company, so we will see what they say. Danny

I am also thinking about putting together a set of FW's with a set of BFG's. (already have the tires, so just have blast and spray up a set of wheels)

I would love to have a set of 15" Minilites with some blue streak tires (for a back up set), but way outside of my budget. I would need to win the lottery to spend more than the tight budget I am currently on. I think I have enough of the "right" junk to sell to keep my hobby going though.... ;D

JUST heard back from that company. They do NOT have 15" X 6". I guess I'll try a Google search or go with the Summit ones... Danny

Those are what I believe to be a lower grade. AND they are dual pattern so they have TEN holes in them  :o  Danny
