15 x 8 or 15 x 7 Rally IIs
I have a 67 convertible I'm starting to work on, but I am a complete noob as far as cars are concerned, so please don't laugh too hard at my question.
My GTO has Rally II wheels on the car, but a simple steel rim on the spare in the trunk. And the spare won't fit on the car lugs. The spacing is wrong. I figure the shop that sold me the car just threw in any old wheel they had to make it look like a good spare. So I need to replace the spare before I get stuck on the side of the road with a flat.....
After reading some forum posts, it seems the car would have come with 5 Rally II wheels, so I figure I might as well buy one for the spare. My problem is, I see that the wheels are offered in two sizes, and I don't know which one to get. Is there a way I can figure out which wheel size is currently on my car without taking off a tire? Will the size of the tire give me the answer? The tires are P205/75 R-14 all the way around.
My car has been modified somewhat, in that I have disc brakes all around. Would this limit me to the 7 inch wheels?
Thank you for your patience!!!!
