What Mark said.

I just zoomed in on the above image, and it looks like the wheels in the XR6 kit, both front and rear, do not have a raised lip around each "window". Is that correct?

The below three Hands four-lug wheels, which I think are from the parts pack, all have a raised lip around each "window":

All the more frustrating that I can't find my parts pack wheel tree. Just to muddy the waters even more, check out this Vicky. The blue coupe probably has the original issue parts pack wheels, but no idea where this Vicky got them. Supposedly built in 63, and they arent from the Vette, the XR6, or the parts pack.

I'd love a look inside that 27 T /XR6 tool. While portions were obliterated for My Mother the Car and the Cinder Bug, I'll bet 2/3rds to 3/4ths of it could still be there.
