Hub caps and steel wheels?
« on: February 07, 2009, 08:49:25 PM »
If you want to replace, in my case, 14" SS-wheels.
What is the most appropriate option, for hubcaps and rims?
Manufacturers and size, pictures if possible?

The car is a -69 SS350 X55
Thanks

I will take some photos and post them later, I don't have my camera here but in my opinion I'd put a set of Torque Thrust wheels with redlines on you car... very nostalgic!  You'll find a photo of them in any car mag or just google.

Yes, TT with redline is nice, but it's more common than my SS-wheels.
And TT, with or without redline, is 8 out of 10 cars.
No, I will not put that on the car.

I'm looking for original SteelWheels with a set of HubCaps.
My questions is, what or which is the right set of hubcaps for my car?

Are you looking for something that could have been original?

Tjen mannen!
Du skall väl ha samma som jag fast med en snobbring, om du skall vara korrekt! Tror dock fälgen skall vara silverlackad på SS men ej säker!

RPO P06 - trim rings. Don't see them too often. Hides most of the wheel color.

Hi and Hej

Yes this looks nice.
But as someone asked, is it same trimring as on RallyWheels / SS-Wheels?
And what kind of rims is it, 14 or 15"?

Håkan, var fick du tag på dina kapslar och fälgar?

Hi & hej!
Fälgarna är alltid 14" men däremot e mina 14x6" då jag har en basmodell, X44. På en SS tror jag det skall vara 14x7"....och det var jag som frågade om det var samma ringar Rally Wheels eller SS ?

Jag fick tag i fägarna via Camaroskroten och Björn. De korrekta GM från rätt fabrik men inte exakt match.number men gjorda för skivbroms som jag har. Kapslarna hade jag tur att hitta mycket fina beggade i E-tuna hos en Camarofantast. Dessa dog dish nytillverkas numera och kan köpas via bl.a. Classics Industries! ...dock inte samma känsla som fina beggade tycker jag! :)

I'm not sure. I've never really dealt with the P06 rings and I don't see (though it's probably there) the P06 in the parts book.

I found in my interchange book a listing for 14" trim rings. Part number is: 9796919. Book says for 14 inch 68-70 chevelle, Camaro, Nova with SS wheels. Same book shows SS wheels as 14 x 7 with 13/32 offset. I know the ss wheel in not the plain steel, but this is the only listing in my book for trim rings on anything other than the Rallye wheels.
