New Chevy/GMC Truck Rally Wheels


Recommended Posts

Hi All,
I have some new 1/25 Chevy/GMC Truck Rally Wheels coming out very soon.
14976509_1300833933306986_43343819446381

I've started casting them, and here is a set of the 4x4 wheels with my new 1/25 All-Terrain T/A:

I will probably make these in 1/24 scale also, but after the new year.

Nice Joseph, 

Any plans on doing the BFG T/A's in larger sizes, 17" 18" rims etc? Working on a 1/24 scale of my 1:1 F150 and it's got 18" BFG's , would like to source something similar for the build.

These tires and wheels look great! 

Any chance that you'll have a dually set for any of the big three? 

Check out Scenes Unlimited for dually wheels and tires. Danny has some nice resin! Great guy and service!

Very nice. Just a suggestion, you might consider offering the 6 lug version with 4 plain centercaps as an option. That particular wheel is very popular for use on '70 and older 2wd GM trucks as an inexpensive way to get a wider wheel without going aftermarket. Most vintage trucks fitted with those wheels use 4 of the closed rear caps. Also, for fitting them to the MPC '78/'79 Chevy truck kits which have the full time transfer case, which would not have the lockouts on the front.

I would think you could just sand down the center of the hubs to get it close enough to the naked eye.

Joseph does offer these as non-4WD  without locking hubs. See the picture in his original post on the left 4x2 (2WD), no locking hubs.

Hello folks,

Sorry for the delay; business is booming and I have been working overtime to keep up with orders.

The Chevy really wheels are shipping, and they are available in four 1/25 sets:

FMR-098  15x8 Chevy/GMC Rally 5-lug (pair)
FMR-099  15x10 Chevy/GMC Rally 5-lug (pair)
FMR-100  15x8 Chevy/GMC Rally 6-Lug (four)
FMR-101  15x8 Chevy/GMC Rally 6-Lug & 31x10.5x15 BFG All-Terrain TA (four)

Send me an email-- fireballmodelworks at gmail.com to get the prices and ordering info.

The 6-Lug set can be ordered with all plain center caps if needed; just ask me about it when ordering.  The plain caps and lockout caps are cast on a separate blocks, so all I have to do is sub in another plain block.

I probably won't update the website until I have the Bronco stuff ready for sale.  That'll be soon.

Thank!
Joseph

So glad to hear! I will be adding to your overtime soon!

So you have got my attention, what do you have in store for the Bronco?  

Thank!

Conversion set to make a Stroppe Baja, wheel flares, correct 15x5.5 & 15x8.5 steelies and covers, maybe even a correct (curved) grille.  These are all in process now, with some pieces already molded, and some still in the drafting phase.

I saw a beautiful Arcadian Blue Bronco on the road this morning, so I take that as a good omen.

Any chance you will be offering a half cab? The one on eBay always seems to sell out before I can get one! Some nice period correct 5 slot aluminum mags or 8 spoke wagon wheels would be nice too!

Joseph, I just got my first order from you, and I can assure you it will not be my last! The speed of delivery is astounding and the quality is second to none. I got two sets of the 17" Method wheels with Wrangler tires. They are exactly what I was looking for and as stated, the quality is simply amazing. There is not a flaw, not a bit of size variation, nothing. Perfection! Thank you for these products and keep the good work coming! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!!!!!

I have the 5-Slots already done since they go with the Stroppe Baja.  I won't do a half-cab because that piece that's on eBay is nice and I think they'll keep making them as long as people want them.  I am considering a roadster conversion, though.

1970 and earlier 2wd Chevrolet and GMC trucks were 6x5.5 bolt pattern as well. As mentioned in my first post, using the 4x4 Rally wheel with 4 closed center caps is a very common swap on the older trucks.

 

An example, this is my 1:1 '55 Chevrolet 2wd truck with 4x4 Rallys on it. I do admit, the centers are not the OEM 4x4 center, but rather are from a '99-'06, but it is basically what is common to see on pre '70 GM trucks.
