      70 Chevelle wheel options

      hey guys,
      I'm building a pro touring 70 Chevelle on a college budget. LS, 4l80E, full UMI suspension with Aldan american coilovers. I'm at the point now of choosing some wheels. I have about a 4-5000$ CAD budget. I'm wondering whats out there in that range? I'm open to buying new or used, even rehooping some used wheels. Is there somewhere to look for used? I've searched through the classifieds but they don't seem to be very active.
      Any advice will be very appreciated!
      thanks,
      Tyler

      Thanks Andrew!

      Iíve had them on my list of options for some time. Theyíre definitely a good looking wheel. Iím sort of hoping to find something used, that way I may be able to get a fully forged wheel in my budget!

      70 Chevelle wheel options

      Hard to find what you want used. For a common car like a late model corvette maybe. 70 chevelle ? Not as likely. Good luck.

      I second the rocket suggestion. I am running them on my 71 Camaro and Iíve been very happy with them. Slightly heavier than a forged wheel but weight is reasonable in 18Ē sizes and they are strong.

      Have you managed to figure out which wheel to install on your Chevelle?

      There are plenty of aftermarket wheels that can add style to your classic car. You may wish to explore brands such as HD wheels. This manufacturer features colorful rims with unique designs.

      If you want to use that money elsewhere there's also factory wheels that work decent. Craigslist/kiji could get you a decent deal. These are 2002 Camaro SS wheels, 17x9.

      I'll second Hotwire's suggestion if you want something more temporary until you can afford what you really want. You can get replica Corvette wheels cheap in a wide variety of sizes and combine them with good quality hub-centric adapters.

      Thanks for the suggestions guys! You both have some nice looking cars!! David I have actually been following your Chevelle for some time lol. Iím more looking for something permanent. I have a couple other projects in the wings (mainly a 56 bel air) so saving for another set of wheels and trying to fund that project will prove to be difficult.
