    Default Can I use '72 rallys on my '63?

    All,
    I have a '63 Vert with some substandard older racing wheels and I'd like to swap them. I originally wanted K.O's but the budget wont allow it these days. Instead I'm looking at some 15 X 7 rallys off a '72. I figure worse case scenario I have an extra set of rallys for my '69.

    Anybody have a quick answer as I'm going to look at purchasing these from someone on Craigslist within a few days.

    Thanks! I appreciate any info you can provide.

    Either this is a very hard question to answer, or maybe way too simple?

    Yes the wheels are the same bolt pattern and will bolt on. Tire size will determine if you have any clearance problems. Lots of guys run 8 inch ralleys with no problem. If those wheels are 15x7s they are 1968 only wheels. 1969 and up used the 15x8 and the 1967 used 15x6.
    All are 4 3/4 inch bolt pattern.

    I go with Tom. They will fit well and know problems with the nuts and bolts. Plus, they are practically the same size.
