ISO 15” Chevy wheels

Looking for a set of 15 inch wheels with 5x4.75 bolt pattern that would look good on an 84 Olds Cutlass.

If you are a fan of the "blacked out" look (or polished) wheels, Jeg's has some nice options for cheap...Maybe $500 for a full set of wheels only, and they also offer "packages" with wheels and tires already mounted and balanced, or at least they used to, I can't say for sure.

I've ran their SSR Stars as my rear "street" wheel/tires for the last 3 or so years. They "kinda" match my nice wheels, so I roll with it.

I run Billet Specialties Street Lites (Made in the USA) on my car, (2000 Trans Am WS6), but they're a bit pricey (about 3-4X the money)...hence why I run the Chinese Jeg's wheels when just out running around the neighborhood.

VISION WHEELS is who makes the JEGS branded wheels. They are indeed CHINESE wheels, but I've raced (9 second/140+ MPH zone) with a pair on the back of my heavy car, and they run straight and true, and are SFI approved if I'm not mistaken.

Found a pic of a random G Body with them on it. I think they look pretty badass on there.

Do you know what back spacing you have on the rear wheels?

If your rear wheel choice is the 15x8, it should be 4.5" backspace.
https://www.jegs.com/i/JEGS/555/681272/10002/-1

The front's backspacing should be basically half + of the width to make it sit right.
So, if 15x7, 4" backspace
https://www.jegs.com/i/JEGS/555/681262/10002/-1

Mine is a totally different animal, different car, Ford 9" rear, etc., running a 15x10, with a 7.5" backspace

The SSR Stars look to be on sale right now as well.
They take "stock style" conical lugnuts.

Glad someone posted some feedback on those wheels. I've looked at some of their various styles for my 66 because of the price but ultimately hesitated out of concern over the strength of the hub area. (I've seen much better wheels come apart after cracking between the stud holes after a hard launch.) Mine is a fairly heavy girl but 11.50's max because I won't cage it but if you're fine at 9's I'm way less concerned.

I don't believe you'll ever have an issue with either of the highlighted concerns.

My car is an unbelievable 4060# with me in it.
A local buddy runs "No Time" races, but is quite faster than me, and launches WAY harder...no issues whatsoever.

OP that Gbody would look right with 15x8 Vette rallys on the back with maybe 15x7s on the front to clear the calipers with the early flat caps. Classy without a lot of extra rolling resistance due to weight.. I was gonna post a WTB/WTT for a 15x8 or 15x10 wheel to fit a 67 B-body Mopar but I can't think of a sexier combo than Corvette Rallys with early DB caps. GM got the rally right for all the bodystyles,aftermarket stepped up offering chrome and larger diameter.

Not the best pic, but this is what I went with for now.
