17 inch Rally wheels
« on: April 20, 2023, 07:40:37 PM »
Guys,
Anyone running the new alum 17 inch Rally wheels? I know there are the 7", 8" and 9" wide versions. My concerns: any fitment issues?

Team Camaro question.  I'd venture to guess you won't get an answer on here about 17" rims.  But maybe.

Thanks. I'd figure it was a chance.

When you find out, it would be worth posting about. I'm not a fan of big wheels and rubberband tires, but I appreciate that someone would try to capture the factory wheel look instead of the more common custom mod wheels.

Can't agree more. Also not a fan of the no sidewalls on a vintage car. I have a set of 17" wheels on my brand X car, with some meat on the sidewalls. Looks good. That is what made me post over here for some viewpoints on the F body (or maybe on an A body) too.

Guys,
Decided to stay with the traditional 15 inch wheels for the new A body project. Here are the neat Hurst wheels I intend to use on the 442.

Yesterday, at our local cars and coffee, I saw a set of the Hurst wheels on a '69 Camaro. Nah, not for me. I believe they look best on a GTO. So, I'm going to secure a nice set of re-pro 15X8 inch Magnums (Super Stock) wheels for the 442 instead.

They're nice. I like the Magnums. They look great on every car I've seen them on; kind of like TT's. Have you checked out the Olds Super Stock ll wheels?

Decided to go 15's instead of 17's?

Yes, 15X8 (Magnum's) on the 442. The look is classic, correct and who can go wrong. They just look great! I'm actually leaning towards the re-pro alum versions.
