17" 66 GTO Rally Wheels

Hello,

I'm new to the site and actually inquiring for a friend of mine.

He's looking for 17" Rally 1 wheels for his 66 GTO. Does anyone make one?

Thank you in advance.

no 17" versions from the aftermarket of the Rally I. your friend could buy some of the 17" Chebby ralley wheels and run the Pontiac center pieces... many wouldn't notice, just a thought. Welcome to the forum.

Thank you for the welcome and the info. I'll let him know and see what he wants to do. I'll post pics afterwards.

Thanks!

OK, not too shabby. Engine looks great. What brand belts are you running? Others have asked what brand/style of belt to use as some are better than others. I ran the "regular" smooth finish factory style belts and flipped/threw them all the time on high RPM blasts until I went with the cogged style belts you are using in the photo. Never threw a belt again. Can't remember the brand name, but I believe I got them from my local NAPA auto store.

Sorry Jim, I'm working on the belt info for you. This is a buddy of mine car.

I had the same problem and even bought a new set of regular belts, same thing.
I finally gave up and bought a set of DayCo cogged belts, so far so good.
I was trying to keep the original look but they just wouldn't stay on and would fly off when downshifting.
