The numbers below are all from the 1972 GM parts book.
14 by 7 wheels
In the blurb below The first number is the replacement second design part number with the improved and safer clip design. The "sup" superseded number is the part number before recall - the design with the "suicide" clips just for cross reference.
So we have this info for 2 1/4" rings:
3934892(sup by 475020 inside clips) - 1969/ALL WITH 14 IN STD WHEEL /OPTION P06
3934892(sup by 475020 inside clips) - 1969-71/ALL WITH 14 IN RALLY WHEEL /OPTION ZJ7/ EXC 350 /300 HP/ AND 396 ENGINE

And we have this info for 2 3/4" rings
9796919 (sup by 2251945 ring clips) - 1969-70/ALL WITH 14 IN RALLY WHEEL /OPTION ZJ7/ WITH 350 /300 HP/ AND 396 ENGINE
9796919 (sup by 2251945 ring clips) - 1969/ALL WITH 14 IN SUPER SPORT WHEEL /OPTION N66/

To me that reads that for the 69 Camaro the 3934892 ring was used by standard 14" wheels and rally wheels EXCEPT for the 350/300 and 396 engines. Which means to me non-SS rally wheels, ergo 14x6 rallys.

And the 9796919 ring was used on the N66 rim (SS wheel) AND option ZJ7 rally WITH 350/300 and 396 engines (SS models!)

Heres a little more in depth discussion on trim rings from a few years ago.  The above is excerpted from this discussion I think.

The original paint 69 Z that I just bought came with 5 matching YH wheels and the four trim rings look to be original too. They are the second design with the clips all the way around the diameter. The original spare that is in the trunk has the paint chipped off the diameter of the wheel like the second design trim ring was on it. The car is a 05C.

Do all your wheels look like they have ever been repainted? Reason I ask is,  I got both styles of trim rings with my car, and my wheels have the original paint on them, and you could see where both styles have been used at one time or another.

My '68 and '69 Z28s had the 4-clip style when I purchased them in the '70's.   at that time, the 4 clip style was the only kind I'd ever seen on original Z28s.   Monte Carlos also used a 15x7 inch rallye wheel from '70 thru '77 which also had similar trim rings (looked pretty identical but were held on by the 'continuous fingers'..    I purchased a new MC in '77, and by then my Camaro trims had a few dents/scrapes around the periphery, and at one time, I *swapped* the trims between the cars (because I wanted the Camaro to look 'better'.   :)       Before I sold the MC, I awoke, and swapped back the trims (fortunately) because by then I was becoming concerned about the 'originality' aspects of early Z28s, knowing that would be an issue as time went on..  so my wheels also have 'marks' from both styles of trim rings, and I'd bet (with the numbers of MC s sold over the years, that sort of thing happened a lot, both with original Z28s and with the thousands of 'clones'...).
PS:  The '70 MC *may* have used the same 4-clip style rings, but I'm positive that by '73 or so, the MCs had the continuous finger style), but I don't know exactly when that changed.

The wheels on the Silver car have not been repainted is my guess. I was told the original wheels were stacked in the second owners garage and had been sitting there since 1971. The car had Cragers on it all these years. I will call him and ask him, but my guess this is accurate because they are not in great shape. They should be repainted except the spare wheel.
