gearheadslife cragars, suck.. and here is why.. the chrome rim with alum center..
unless you are manic with cleaning/waxing.. they will rust..
maybe it's not as big a problem with vehicles that never see rain..
yes they look awesome.. but what a royal p.i.t.a.

the 70-72 velle you can fit 15by 10" rear wheels with a 5.5" backspace
fronts, most use a 15x8 with 4"b/s

most any rim looks good on these..
good luck..

Chevelle vs. Malibu

Well the only wheel I haven't heard mention is the Keystone Classic. It looked similar to a stock wheel but with chrome.

69 chevelle

hi i just bought a 69 chevelle ss 396 big block, 375 hp. i was wondering; the interior need a whole new overhaul and the outside could use minimal work and a paint job (i was thinking all black/gloss) does anyone have any suggestions? on where to get this done i am in NC any good places? and for the inside i'm talking new floor panels, carpet, seat, foam, maybe a little dashboard work (i personally could stand that dash being a lil cracked up not too important) interior roof needs to get redone also (flaking away) also my brakes need to be changed, any ideas? about all in all how much do you think i should!! pay

WHAT ? the astro sprint is back ? i need 14's up front to go with my 15x10" in rear....damn ive been waiting for a while. i had mine decked out at the time with BFgoodrich white letter 225/50-14 in front and 265/50-15 in back. i bet they dont even make tgose sizes anymore.

hey, that look reminds me of highschool, bigs and smalls forever.

the chevelle base had the post in between the windows when you roll it down. the malibu was all open. my 71 malibu was my first car. there is a picture of the one i owned in my photo's. ran mid 14.xx's and drove on the highway.

cornfieldcars Geez....I guess I'm old too as I love the classic Cragar S/S's. A wheel with the same look are American Torque Thrusts which I'm putting on my pickup. I had the Cragar's on my 69 Camaro ( way back when ).

My favorite wheels on the '71-'72's are 15 X 8 Vette Rally's but they look good with almost anything on them. The Malibus usually came with the Camaro style rally wheels in 14 X 6 which are now being reproduced in sizes up to 15 X 8. I'd love to see one with a set of those in 15 X 8 on it. Strictly personal preference though.

Super Sports came standard with bench seats beginning in '68, buckets became a separate option and were also available in the regular Malibu. Small blocks became the base Super Sport motor in '71.
I agree, Corvette rallys/caps/rings are the best lookin' wheels.....on anything.

ChevelleSS_LS6 fav color combos:
red (looks like modern GM victory red) with black hood stripes.
dark blue (lemans blue? fathom blue? something?) white hood stripes.

hood stripes if only cowl induction hood, and a SS (or cloned SS)

the cragars or slot mags as I mentioned
corvette rally wheels (someone mentioned those a while back)
those wheels that were available from the factory on almost any musclecar, ford makes a newer version... see pic here
