I bought my 67 GTO last month and it has trim rings from a much later model on it.  I would like to replace them, but not necessarily with the stock 67 versions. My car has 15X7 (obviously not original) Rally II's and I would like to go with a trim ring that doesn't have a flat cone surface and not a brushed finish. I think I'm looking for something later model, possibly 69 GTO/Firebird that has a curved surface and a stepped lip. Anyone have any suggestions on the model that had these from the factory and where I might find some reproduction rings? I've tried looking at NPD, OPGI and Ames, but it's hard to tell a a lot about the details from the pictures they provide. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated. I attached a picture of what I'm looking for (not my car in the picture).

I wanna see more pic's of the car!  :lol2:   Like what you have on the trim rings, but 68-70 is the curved pieces your reffering to. I have a pair, but sure I don't have a set.

Dang!... wish I could help you there Rick, but I like my rally II's with no trim rings. Sounds like you are looking in the right places- you might add Year One and Classic Industries (Firebird). I stored my original 14" rally II's and trim rings, and like you, I now run 15x7's (with 235/60 tires).

This is what's on my car right now - see attached, so you can see why I'm looking for something more period correct.

Finally decided to just go with the factory looking trim rings. I must say I'm very pleased with the look of these rings as compared to the others that were on the car when I bought it.


 


The new ones are in the second picture.

Looks awesome Rick! :dancingpontiac: It's amazing what a liitle change makes sometimes... the new trim rings make your Rally II's look much deeper.

I don't see a problem.....so long as you still have both the Lemans and cash.
