For my Challenge car(/vehicle) this coming year, I bought the wheels and tires from my friend's Challenge car from this year (the #91 Firebird, which he has up for sale here as well). However, the wheels are a mis-matched set of Camaro/Iroc wheels, with different wheel types for each side of the car (since the Camaros have slightly different front/rear wheels). I'd really like to have a matched set of wheels, so am looking to see what anyone might have to trade me for these.

Pictures of both sets of wheels can be found here: http://gallery.me.com/rbabcock#100163&bgcolor=black&view=grid

The wheels would need to be 16", 5 x 4.75 (5 x 120.7) lug pattern, with no more than 5" backspacing (have to fit on a G-body) and wide enough for a 225 tire. A full set of 92 or earlier 16" Camaro wheels would be ideal, since they'd obviously fit, but I'm not totally wedded to the Camaro wheels designs (just the tires :P).

The trade would be for just the wheels, the tires would be removed prior to the trade. Let me know if you have some wheels you think would work! Thanks!

I have (6) cragar soft 8 wheels that are exactly what you are looking for. They were on a 78 malibu (g-body) for about 1 year. They look good. They are the black ones.

Wanna trade an RX7 motor and tranny for them?

The wheels have tires that were used for 2 lemons races still on them. Not sure if they are usable for you.

In reply to wvumtnbkr: The wheels sound like they'd work well for car, but without also having a buyer for the RX-7 it would be hard to trade the motor & transmission. That would also be trading for something not currently in my $2012 budget, so we'd need to work out an FMV for the trade. What would you want if I were to just buy them?
