Which Wheel?
« on: October 12, 2007, 01:12:17 PM »
What wheel was used in 68 if the car had front disc brakes?  What was the offset?

Phil -

1968 Camaros with front disc brakes used these wheels:

1) 14x6 steel wheel = "XF" code.  Offset:  +.50"

2) 14x6 rally wheel = "XG" code.  Offset:  +.50"

3) 15x6 rally wheel = "DF" code.  Offset:  +.50"   (Z/28 only)    :)

Thanks Paul...  ;D

So if a standard sports coupe was ordered with the J50/J52 option, it would have most likely come with a 14x6, XF and the offset would have been +.50" offset.  Right?  ???

I'm trying to figure something out from a picture, so I'm sort of backing into some of the original options.  The picture shows a steel wheel.
