Replacement 15x6 DF wheels
« on: May 20, 2009, 04:25:08 AM »
Does anyone make a nice replacement for the Camaro 15x6 rally wheel (DF)? I know you can buy the 15x7 and 14x7 wheels all day long and some places sell a new 15x6 rally wheel but, Im trying to find out if they have the right offset or back spacing. More impotant, is the center part of the wheel almost flush with the rim where the valve stem hole is? I don't own a Z28 but I want the look of the narrow wheel without having to compete with Z owners trying to buy original DF wheels. Thanks guys.

No the repro wheels have the offset close to the Corvette. I bought a set about 4 years ago, but I do not remember the backspacing.....maybe 3-1/2". See attached picture and you can see how the placement of the center section is inside the hoop.......................RatPack...........

John, if you can't find a reproduction set, I have a friend who has a complete set of DF rally wheels off an original '68 Z/28.  All four wheels have the same date code.  They are stamped:  K18  7  16  DF

I have a friend who has a pair of 68 DF wheels on the front of his GMC S15 daily driver. He said he'd trade them for a pair of my 15x7s. Now, I just need to find 2 more...repro or original. If I could just get a full set elsewhere, that would be fine also.

Paul, I'm curious about the wheels your friend has. Post or email me a price if you get a chance. Thanks very much.
