Good morning GOAT Gurus?

I'm looking for a spare tire rim, can be ugly / used for a spare tire that needs 15x7 rim (i have drum brakes). Ames has discontinued to OEM, and there other 'cheapest' Rally wheel has been backordered since last July. Where could i find one of these? And, what other GM car should i be looking at when touring junkyards?

Thanks, Carl

Yeah, shipping would be a bear. Fastenal use to have decent point-to-point service but inconsistent with COVID. Thx anyways!

I'm in Bay Area; as long as it fits on '67 GTO drum axle, 15x7", 5 holes.....i don't care how fugly they are!

May sound funny, but try Greyhound bus. Not many people know they do shipping and I have found they are still the cheapest shippers around. Only drawback is not too many Greyhound bus stations around. That is where you have to drop off and P/U. I use them all the time.

I went through the same exercise with my 65 when i bought a set of 15x7 torqthrusts from tire rack. They had no steel wheels to use for a spare but directed me to Summit racing where they had a choice of chevy rallye wheels and some steel ones of a S10 same bolt pattern. Even the rallyewheels were cheap like $50

In the junkyard, check the 73-77 G bodies (Monte/GP) for 15" steel wheels.
