Early 69 Z28 Rims
« on: July 12, 2010, 12:49:46 AM »
Hey Guys, I have a Early 12B 69 Z28 and have been looking for a set of rims and was wondering if anybody out there had a 69 Z close to mine and what the date codes were on them. I've heard that the rims were made in batches at certain times of the month and just trying to get an idea of what to look for. You guys out there are great. I enjoy reading through all the posts weekly. I've learned so much. Thanks and take care.

Those would be 15x7 AD wheels, correct? If so, they are going to be tough to find.

Yes Jimmy those are the rims and I know it going to be like finding a needle in a haystack. But I was just trying to get some information on the date codes for those rims.

Thanks Paul, Would that date code of Oct. 24th be ok for 12B build car?

Rick -

IMO, that wheel would be OK for your car.  Remember, wheels came by the thousands, stacked herringbone-style in rail cars, and nobody either at Kelsey-Hayes or at the assembly plants paid any attention at all to dates; all they cared about was the correct wheel type.
