I did see them but they just don't look right to me !

The Revell 83 Olds kits have those wheels but they look like they have trim rings to me.

Not right for sure. The part of the wheel where the valve stem goes is WAAAAY too wide and the center cap should be tapered.

Depends on the individual wheel. Those resin ones look pretty close to these 15" ones.

Buy 1970 1971 1972 1973 1974 1975 OLDSMOBILE 442 CUTLASS 15 INCH RALLY  WHEELS in Hot Springs, South Dakota, United States, for US $150.00

And they are closer than these AMT ‘69 442 rims with the chrome rings.

Joseph does say his wheels are 15x7 so they are the bigger wheel.

Ya know, If a person was to cut the trim rings off those rally wheels, , ,  grind down the backs of those mags until all that's left was the rim to just where the spoke starts and glue the rims from the mags to the rest of the rally wheel you'd just about have the wheel in question.

I went through the stash and pulled out all my Olds kits with Rally wheels. First us the Revell 72 442 convertible, second is the Revell 72 Cutlass pace car, and third is the Revell 83 Hurst Olds.

Agreed. I was looking for a pic of the 15" versions to compare, but failed. I don't think the 15" were ever used without a trim ring, so I am at a loss why they are cast.

I have some old resin Chrysler wheels that are cast with a separate trim ring and center. I can't find the package and don't remember who made them Probably no longer in business, but I seem to remember that they made "more detailed" versions of old musclecar OEM wheels.

Rodent- Scale Equipment Ltd. may be who you are thinking of the: the Chrysler wheels. They made some really nice wheels from all the manufacturers, like Pontiac Rally IIs, Chevy Rallys, etc. I seem to remember them making Olds SS IIs as well, with and without trim rings. Not sure if they are still around.

Yep, I did some reading last night and these cars weren't very popular due in part to the monochrome look. Dealers would dress them up with trim rings and sometimes even replace the bumpers with chrome ones to give the car a more traditional look.

Thx no long made !

The SEL wheels are superior to any of the Revell pieces.

I have one extra set. Message me directly if you're interested.

What about removing the outer part and putting the center into another wheel with better detail?
