70's style Help

Hey Guys,

I'm doing a 70's stock car styled build. I'm looking for retroish 18s.
Really looking for a Rallye style wheel. I've found a couple on Wheel Vintique but no 18s.

Anyone seen anything close to old stock car?

Check out this thread.....

I talked to the company that makes these "billet" rally wheels, and they said they could definitely make these in an 18" with the proper offsets for our 5th Gen Camaro. But you should be prepared to pay probably around $2500 for a set of (4)!!!!!!!!! Pretty expensive, but if this is what you're looking for.....it's really your only option, unless you want to install a "Torq-Thrust" style wheel which is kind of "retro-ish" too.

Wow I bet those would look great in 18s. $2500 is ridiculous though. Has anyone done an 18 yet? Thanks for pointing me in that direction!

Have not seen anyone do the billet Rally's in anything but 20's, but I do think 18's would look even better! I just can't justify the cost though.

Like I said, the American Racing Torq-Thrust "M" (18x??) will fit over the V-6 Brakes. That's a much cheaper "retro" option, but definitely not quite as cool.

Maybe either paint the black 18" steelies silver like the old rally wheels, or get them chromed/chrome cover like here:

That's not a bad idea Toasty.
Do you guys know if I can fit a 17" rim around the calipers?

not sure on the 17's.

For a different take, one could also leave the wheels black, and either paint or have silver vinyl cut to overlay the "humps" between the windows. (5 splayed around the weel) that would give it a similar look to:
