Rallye wheels on Cs
« Reply #15 on: March 28, 2011, 04:16:22 AM »

I'm surprised a dealer would be cheaper on anything!  At least
here in the  States. They don't call 'em Stealer for nothin!

Man.. that looks sweet.. I need to get some old style center caps and trim rings for my rallyes..
 
You can buy them new through Coker Tire, Stockton Wheel, or Vintage Wheel.  But, they are GOLD!!!  You can almost buy new TQ-Ds for the prices they ask for Mopar stuff.

I even saw at the mopar nationals you can get plastic center caps that look EXACTLY like the metal ones... 4 for $80...

Not sure if these are the real rallye wheels, but they look ok on the wagon...

What a great looking wagon!!  Those are Road Wheels, optional on
Cs.  Rallye Wheels have round holes, and never came on, and were
not available, on Cs at the time as far as I know.



Good to know about the AMC wheel caps, thanks.

The later AMC caps look like the ones in that picture.  Earlier ones do not.  If you look at some of the pictures I've posted of the Gremlin, the caps on the Indy 500s are AMC Rallyes from '73 and earlier.

Thanks... I wasn't sure about the wheels. I do know that they aren't original, because the guy I got it from told me he had to fabricate some spacer plates for the front, but he didn't have the original stock ones anymore. I'd rather get a set that fit without a spacer, but for now, these are ok.

Are you using a spacer for the center caps or the whole wheels?  Those wheels are Chryslers (in your picture), they should fit without a spacer.

I haven't taken them off yet, so I don't know. They were on when I got it, and the guy I bought it from told me about the spacers. I thought he meant the wheels, but maybe he meant the center caps.

He could have used full-wheel spacers for those AMC caps to fit.  AMC, like Ford, used a smaller center hole than Mopar.  Here would be a test: take off one wheel, remove the cap, and then see if the whell will mount without the spacer.  That would answer the question.  If so, you would just need to swap the caps. 

I had wheels just like those on the New Yorker I sold to Hobby (same black centers) - they fit perfectly!  Prior to using those wheels I had 14" Rallyes and needed a spacer.

That's what I was saying earlier - they are gold.  You have to buy the trim rings seperate as well.  Like I said, new TQ D's are cheaper!
