    I've looked at as many threads here that I can find but can not seem to find a definitive answer. Hoping someone can help.
    Most of the threads say no one makes trim rings for 14x5.5 rallye wheels. Only 14x6 which do not fit properly, they sit out 1/2" from the outer lip of the wheel.
    I have a mix of early 70's wheels that need the rings. Can anyone clarify and/or point me to a vendor who has what I need.
    Thanks

    I bought some from a member on FBBO a while ago.

    They were slightly damaged on the tangs, and were repro, but they fit well and have help up. They also look correct RE the step on the outer most portion.

    There was only 1 trim ring offered from 1970 thru the mid 80s time frame. 2944424 and was used on both the 5.5 and 6" rims

    EDIT, my comment applies to 14" wheels only.

      I’ve tried to date the wheels using the stampings on them and believe they are all early 70’s.
