Would 15" Rally Wheels fit on my LM?
Posted by: 63RedBrier ()

15 x 7 rim

5 x 4.75 bolt pattern

4 1/4" backspacing

FW stamping

If so, what size tires on all four wheels would I need to run in order to be able to rotate the tires?

Thanks! Greg

Yes, that size will fit. I've had several LMs with Camaro wheels that are the same dimension. Tire depends on brand. 205/60-15 works well with some brand tires but other brands I've had to go with 195/60-15. The size mentioned by roiwn4 should also fit just fine.

It's been a while but I'm pretty sure that I had 205/70-15 with those wheels on my 65. They fit fine but it drove better with 6 inch rims.

I don't hear folks asking if the center hub on the rims is the same as the factory Corvair wheels ..... do the rally wheels have the same center hub opening dimension ?

Aftermarket 15x7 from Summit has a larger hub size.

There have been threads about this in the past. A lot of different opinions about hub size.

Like anything on the internet, you have to filter through it and figure out what works good for you.

I just put 15x7 (4.25 backspace) wheels with Michelin 205/60-15 tires on my 1967 Monza and it drives great!

I bought the wheels from Summit. They arrived the next day,which was a surprise!!

My wife thinks I should drive it more but I like to work on it so I usually have it parked in the garage with "something" being fixed or upgraded!

I hope to have it ready to 'rock and roll' by spring.

I need to show off these wheels!!!

My GM rally wheels have the same 2.8125 center hole measurement as my stock wheels did.

If the center opening on the rim doesn't fit the hub snugly, as in too large of a rim center for the hub, the weight of the vehicle and action of the wheel will be fully absorbed by the studs, causing stud fractures.

Bob, actually there are 3 types of wheels...

Lug Centric

Hub Centric

Lug and Hub centric...

Factory wheels are "usually" the 3rd type..

Here's a Unilug wheel... With no slot filler...and was not Hubcentric....were on a Mustang prior to my purchase...

So I made Hub "centering " rings.... of Aluminum

Newest are plastics! see ebay
