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!

Okay, second question. I got the the 17" wheels but now I don't know what size tires I can run on them. Stock 66 Gto.

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.

As I mentioned it's a buddy's car. I'll have to get back to you on the back space and tire size.

I'm new to this forum so please excuse me if I'm doing something wrong. I am in the process of doing a frame-up resto on a 1966 Pontiac GTO.

It's time for me to start thinking about new tires and wheels.

My intent is to use a larger wheel with a decent height on the sidewall. NO dubs and shortwalls! I want to go larger than a 14 or 15", preferably in the 18" range on the front and 18" or 20" wheel on the rears. I've converted over to a disc brake on the front and stayed with the drum on the rears.

Sticking with original wheel wells.

Is there anyone that has used a larger tire/wheel combo and if so, what problems did you have?

Any help with the offset dimensions, etc. would be appreciated.
