Year one Rally II 17 Inch

Guys,

If you havent heard, year one is making 17 inch aluminum Rally II Wheels. They are very very well made and absolutely beautiful. They also come in 17x8 or 17x9 with 4.5 and 5 inch back space respectively. Take a look at what they look like on my 69, picked them up last week at year one.

$799 plus the cost of the lug nuts and center caps. They are probably the best mod I have done to the car. I highly reccomend them.

I reccomend a 245/45R17 Tire on the front for no rubbing. I installed 255/50R17 on all 4 corners. I had to slightly roll the front and back sides of the front wheel wells to get about a half inch extra room so there would be no rubbing. I was still able to attach the original chrome trim even though the front and rear had been rolled in a little. It was not enough to make the chrome not fit. The 245/45R17 would not have this issue.

Yes I have the 17x8 on all 4 corners. If you want to go larger than a 255 tire width then you will need the 17x9.

Any idea what the backspace would be for a 9" wheel. I'm thinking of going with a 275 tire on the back of my '69. It also has station wagon springs so the rear is raised.
