1969 spare wheel
« on: April 20, 2006, 02:12:25 AM »
If a car came with rally wheels was the spare also a rally? I have an original car but not sure if the wheels are. They are correct coded rallys but the spare wheel is a steel wheel with body color.

All 5 wheel/tire assemblies matched unless the car was ordered with N65 space-saver spare, available only with 14" wheels.

My '69 RS has all 5 original 14" rally wheels.  At one time, I verified that the code, on all 5 of the Kelsey Hayes ralleys, was the same. Can't seem to find that info right now.  Guess I'll have to note it again next time one of the wheel is off the car.

As an aside, when I bought the car in 1991, it actually had what may have been one of the original tires on the spare in the trunk, a Goodyear Polyglas E7014.  That tire is still the spare tire in the trunk to this day.  Hope I never have a flat, as I would not want to have to consider the use of that tire.  The tires that I have on the car are repro Polyglas E7014's to match the one in the trunk.  If not the original tire, looks good.

E70 x 14 tires were never available as original equipment on a 1969 Camaro.

The standard size [non-SS or Z/28] was E78 x 14; F70 x 14 optional.

SS cars had F70 x 14 as the standard size; several varieties were optional.

Z/28s and COPOs also equipped with 9737 used E70 x 15. There were no 15" tire options.

Only F70-14 was available, but you could get them in blackwall, redline, and a few white letter variaties.

What would be the correct P-Metric equivalents for E78x14 and F70x14?

Looks to me like E78x14 is today's P205/70 R14 and the F70x14 is today's P215/70 R14; 8 inch wide and 8.5 inch wide (approx) tires.

From the following link:  http://clubs.hemmings.com/clubsites/chevylist/tech/tire_size_conversion.htm

Assuming that I am reading the chart correctly - not the most intuitive thing.

Here is a cute little tire caculator:

It won't give you the old format, but it can compare different tire sizes.

Would a 69 SS equipped with 14"x 7" wheels come with a 14"x6" spare wheel? What color would the spare wheel be?

William,

My understanding is that any '69 Camaros ordered with the 4-wheel disk brakes also included the 15" rallye wheel (or it was a mandatory associated option?)  I assume this would even be true with the one 6-cyl Camaro that was supposedly ordered with the 4-wh disks?

E70 x 14 tires were never available as original equipment on a 1969 Camaro.

The standard size [non-SS or Z/28] was E78 x 14; F70 x 14 optional.

SS cars had F70 x 14 as the standard size; several varieties were optional.

Z/28s and COPOs also equipped with 9737 used E70 x 15. There were no 15" tire options.

Don't forget the other option - SS five spoke wheels, 14 X 7 AO code K-H's, available up until late '68 if I remember correctly, I've always called them SS-1's. Some people like 'em, some don't, but I'm happy to have all 5 of mine on the L78 X66 12A barn car.

William,  I'm not sure what you mean here...   only one 'non-Z28'?  or only one 6 cyl car?   
I've heard about the 6 cyl car either here or TC, and I have a friend with a '69 SS396 HT with factory JL8.

There was a 15" tire option in 68 and 1 documented 1968 SS was discovered in 2011 with the option, may be 69's out there too. My friend has the MacNeish certified 307ci, 4 speed, JL8 car found in a Southern California field> currently under restoration.

Another senior moment - I scrambled over the pile in the garage looking for date codes on my N66 SS rally wheels, only to discover that they are not AO code '70 Chevelle wheels (I was apparently remembering the '70 LS5 I sold last year), but are YA code Camaro wheels like they are supposed to be. That's what I get for owning a Chevelle ( at least I sold it to afford my '68 Z). I have to assume they are not Kelseys ? No "K" code, all are marked M19, dates range from 4/23 - 5/28. Car is a 12A '68 X66. My bad - leaped before I looked.

As I recall, those wheels were made by Motor Wheel Corporation in Lansing, Michigan (another major GM wheel supplier).

Just an FYI, but YA coded wheels were not exclusive to the camaro. They were used in 1969 on both the camaro and chevelle. AO coded wheels were used on 1970 chevelle.

Precisely - thanks, DW -

If the creeping thing was a 12B or C, I wouldn't have to go through the guesswork of whether it's an X66 or an X22. Gotta be one or the other, but with no original paperwork, how can I tell ?

I don't think it is a Style Trim car (not an RS, anyway due to the rear valance), standard interior, no console, and the quarters are not drilled for gills. My guess is that it's an X66 -

Steve

I am only familiar with the X33 and X77 models (Z/28). I am learning more about the others, so my question is your guessing your car is a X66 because of no style trim. There was a 69 SS 396 car on ebay with a report by Jerry, it is a X66 car with style trim ebay completed auction 261256670270. A nice original car 1 repaint, but it is not mentioned in the report of having the wrong trim on it. I am unsure what constitutes a X22 car.

So on the car that Jerry inspected they added the headlight trim, tail light trim and wheel well moulding, and then Jerry didn't call any of that out?

I take back what I said. It's not the same as the X77 but it is the same as X55. I guess SS cars had the bright work except the wheel well & rain gutter on X66. I should know that...I own one...Joe

I'd assume there would be an X6 or an X2 hand written on the bulkhead behind the rear seat. My 12B has an X1.

It's common for owners to display a Camaro Hi- Performance certificate. The inspection always includes a listing of non-original parts and incorrect features if it is a restoration. I'm sure it was noted.

Were yours (original wheels) in original paint?
and if so what color is the reverse? Black or Grey?

JohnZ,
Did Motor Wheel supply finished painted wheels (low volume)?
OR
Did the assembly plants mask and spray 2 colors on the wheels?
Perhaps this could provide an answer to the grey back question regarding 69 Trans AM Rally II's (grey backs on survivors assembled at Norwood) as well.

I can't speak to the Pontiac Rally II wheels - I don't recall how those were handled - I was at Norwood before Firebird production was transferred there. The standard Pontiac wheels were black primer on the back side, based on Lordstown photos.

Dig the giant wheel weight - indicative of what I took off of it (Goodyear WT GT, RWL's). Tires were original Goodboots, not Brazilian copies.

My factory YH and YJ rallys are black on the inside and backside (unrestored, original paints), the factory YA's (original paint) and the set of AO's I restored (also original paint) for my '70 SS Chevelle were grey on the backside, black on the inside, with a little black overspray around the backside of the rim (you can see this in the pic, slightly). The grey is more reminiscent of "jack" grey or putty than "shock" grey, come to think of it.

My N66's were produced in '68 - I doubt they are service wheels. The AO's I had were original to that car, also (perfectly dated to the car to boot). If there is another circumstance for these, I'm not privy to it. My sample size is pretty small to draw a complete survey -

I looked at a friends 30K Feb 69 car yesterday and took a picture of his rally spare for you guys. Very original unmolested car. Note the straps on the jack mast also. George

A February N66 equipped car kinda stretches the aforementioned January 8th deadline (if it was January the 8th) out there, doesn't it ? Car could have been ordered before the cancellation, obviously.

Nice trunk and appointments - the VE3 hook is a lot brighter than mine. The color always reminds me of Ford Blue.

As not to confuse anyone the picture of the wheel I posted is not an N66 (SS Wheel) car.

Thanks for the correction - a classic case of me commenting without realizing the subtle change in the thread direction. I looked at the color, not the configuration, and was still thinking N66 -

I'll be more careful -

Thought factory wheels were painted black on the back, service wheels were grey?

CBTN Figure 17-9.
The way I read the painting notes:

PLAIN K-H Part No E-82277 Cust PN _____
Coat with Rustproofing Oil: K-H Part No E-82278 Cust Part No. 3958480
Gray Primer K-H Spec B-3352: K-H Part No E-82279   Cust Part No. 3966934
Same as E-82279 except tape  identify for Chevrolet Service: K-H Part No E-82280

This relates to the 69 AD rally.

I assume you guys are hashing out the SS AO/YA wheels at this point. Does anyone have a copy of the CBTN for 70-75 & does it contain the K-H drawing with notes on it that might clarify.

Does this mean KH painted the wheels or does it mean they shipped rustproof oiled wheels?


As an aside - The N66 wheels were supplied by Motor City wheel not KH

K-H shipped whatever the customer ordered; the assembly plants ordered GM #3958480, K-H #E-82278. SERVICE ordered GM #3966934, K-H #82280.

K-H shipped whatever the customer ordered; the assembly plants ordered GM #3958480, K-H #E-82278. SERVICE ordered GM #3966934, K-H #82280.

If all wheels shipped to plants were raw rust proof oiled KH # 82278 and all wheels shipped as service were to be KH spec B-3352 grey then there is no need for KH# 82279 (which appears to be a grey wheel withOUT tape to identify as a service wheel)
It exists for a reason, internally at KH or?
