possible to fit old style rally wheels on new camaro?

Hello everyone, I have been on the side just monitoring all the great info here on this site, now that the real ordering has begun I was wondering if the old style rally wheels from the 60s-70s would fit? Is the bolt pattern the same? I know that you are thinking, why would you go back down to 15in wheels when 18- 20in wheels are the norm, I just like the look and might try something different. Thanks for the in put

unless you get new bolt pattern rally wheels they wont fit. the new hubs are all 5x120 which isnt safely compatible the sizes the old rally wheels were made in

I guarantee one of the big wheel companies will make a retro-style rally wheel for the Camaro. Look at the Mustang; you have everything from Torq-Thrust style wheels, redline tires, and any other retro styling bit you could possibly want (or not).

I had been thinking about this also... would need to see some chops of it first. There is a company that reproduces them up to 18" if I remember correctly, which I think would be the minimum you could go on the car to make it look right.

Good chance you may have brake clearance issues with a 15" wheel, no?

Absolutely. Wheel Vintiques makes 17, 18, and 20 inch diameter Cheverolet Rally wheels.

http://wheelvintiques.com/shopsite_s...ml/page75.html

However, they're

a. Very low offset.

b. The wrong bolt pattern.

c. Average $740 a piece.

You'll probably be paying $1000 a piece to get Wheel Vintiques to custome make Camaro fitments, but I'd LOVE it if they did.

Dropped 2SS with a 69 style Hurst Stick and Black Ball and 20" Rally Replicas.......

Of course, I'd have to go with the original style center caps.

  1. 15" wheels won't clear the brakes
  2. bolt pattern is different
  3. offset is completely different

About as retarded as 20's look on a 1st Gen.












EDIT: Shouldn't this be in the Wheels/Tires/Suspension section?
