Rally IIs

Hi Everyone,

Just got a 66 LeMans Convertible. It needs tires hate the craggers on it. Saw refurbished 15X7s for 67-77 GTO/Firebird with correct bolt pattern will they fit? Their asking $650.


Thanks

They should fit.
Too bad you don't like the Cragars, I think they look good and are period correct. A buddy makes eccentric rings to perfectly center the rims and eliminate any vibration coming from the uni-lug design.

vintage cragars were not uni-lug. Any 5 x 4-3/4 bolt pattern wheel will work.

Cragars are cool. American Racing with gray spokes (homage to "Bullitt") are good in my view.

I'm with these guys. Rally II's always look "wrong" to me on pre- '67 cars. They will fit, though.

The rally II's look good on a 66 body but I like the rally 1's but not enough to pay what they want new. I like the s/s on them too but there are a bunch runnin around. I went with the crager street pro chrome on mine.

Went with the Rally IIs. Couldn't see buying new tires for rims I didn't want. Oringally just wanted some temp tires to get me through to the fall amd next summer but with the 14" wheels there are no cheap tires. Right now planning on BF Goodrich TAs 215/70 all around want to be able to rotate them. I have Goodrich 37s on my truck and they ride great. Any thoughts?
