Need Help With Z-28 Wheel

Hey Guys,

I am going to the Carlisle, PA swap meet in a couple of weeks and want to pick up another Z-28 Wheel. I have 3 but want to complete the set before they get too expensive.

So my question is were the Z-28 wheels for years 1970-1981 all the same? Or were there differences through the years. I have attached a picture of the wheel that I have along with the coding on it. If you could decode it that would be great. It would be a lot easier if they were all the same which I think is the case but I want to be certain before I just go and pick up any Z wheel. As always I appreciate your input.

To the best of my knowledge these wheels were all identical except for date codes. These also were used on '71-'72 Chevelle Super Sports. They all have the same offset and the only difference I could tell was the emblem in the middle of the center caps.

just a little info on these wheels

I know this thread is VERY old, but for anyone who may still have this question..... there are at least two style's of these wheels that I know of. One will have a round valve stem hole the other will have an oval shaped valve stem hole. I don't know if the difference is because of the year they were made, or because one is for a chevelle and the other is for a camaro? I have no idea what the purpose of the oval valve stem hole is either.
