Chevelle steel wheels

I think that is going to be an aftermarket wheel as I know of no stockers in 15x8 Vintique wheel has the 15x8 with original GM center patterns and the dog dish caps that I am aware of..

To the best of my knowledge Corvettes came with 15X8 rally wheels. I had some on my 62 Impala.

Camaros had matching rallys that where 15X6 or 15X7.That is what I had on the front.I think Monte Carlos had them also.

good choice, when I got mine from Coker, they were primed and I painted them, however, I wish I'd waited and spent the bucks and had them powder coated - - just my preference tho.

Those dog dish are "*****in" and look so cool on painted steelies
