Hi everyone, I was wondering what a decent set of 14 x 6 Pontiac "Rally" wheels would be worth to sell.  They are the JC code. Ebay has a set for $500 is that a realistic price to ask? If not what would be a fair price for both me & the buyer?

Thanks for any help

Just to clarify, I assume you are talking about Rally II wheels and not Rally I wheels.

Selling price has a lot to do with the overall condition of the wheels. Bent, rusted, or heavily paint chipped/scratched wheels are worth significantly less than a nearly unmolested set of wheels. A completely restored set are worth top dollar (unless you have a totally unused new old stock Rally IIs), especially if they are date code and/or letter code correct for a particular valuable model, like a GTO Judge or an early model Trans Am. 

So $500 would be the max I'd pay for a really good set of 14 x 6s if I was looking to correctly restore a car. $100 a wheel is more realistic for a top condition wheel. 14 inch wheels are less popular that 15 inch wheels. This is not to say that a set of 15 inch Rally II are worth significantly more either, they are just more in demand.

The 15 inch rims tend to be much more popular to the current resto-mod crowd than the 14 inch wheels. One of the biggest reasons is because you can fit aftermarket front and rear disc brake kits under a 15 inch wheel and you can't with a 14 inch wheel. Also, people want want wider wheels so they can run wider tires under the fenders, so again 15x7 or 15x8 tend to be more popular over a 15x6 or 14x6.

indymanjoe hit it. Was gonna ask if you have the trim rings and center caps to with the rims.  Frosty nailed the rest of the info.

Thank you all for the help. I had someone ask for the 14 x 6 JC code wheels. As far as I can tell they are in good shape, would just have to be sanded & repainted. Just some very minor surface rust. I do know that 14" are hard to sell. I was just looking for a ballpark number. No trim rings or center caps to go with them, just the bare wheels. I will try to get $350 for the set. Thanks Again.

Unfortunatly, He only wanted one wheel, & I didn't want to break up the set. So no sale.

Did he make an offer on the one wheel?

No, but I am trying to find out what other "Pontiac Rally" code will work on his drum brake setup. I do have misc. codes so maybe another code will work..........any ideas?

It's been a while,  but I have another question. Will the 14" x 7" Rally II wheels fit on a '69 Firebird with factory front disc brakes? If not what will fit. Thanks

If we are talking about a true, original OEM factory front disc brake set-up, then yes, a 14x6 or 14x7 will fit.

The same is true for the A-body cars.

Ok that's what I needed to know. It is factory front disc brakes, at least that is what the owner is telling me. He was interested in buying a set of 14 x 7 wheels from me, but we were both unsure if they would fit. Thank You. He was supposed to show up Sat. to buy them, but he was a no show. If he doesn't show then I will know for the next person. Thanks Again. I can always count on this board to come through.
