Bout 150-200 with a willing buyer for what you have there......I traded off a set like that on good tires for a 68 Impala 2 door hardtop. Moral of the story-I guess the skys the limit and a little elbow grease and argent paint goes a long way.

Sometimes, ITS ALL IN THE PRESENTATION.

You asked what they are worth.

Put a price on em and see what they bring.

As they are-
150-200 with trim rings and caps is the going rate.

If your asking price is too high, then somebody will offer less. Even if it isn't too high, some people will offer less!!! Get the roller out and put a coat of nice looking paint on 'em, and price them about $250 -$300!!:devil:

What are the codes by the valve stem? Knowing the application and date code can change their value. Sometimes restorers are willing to pay a little more for the "correct" wheel.

They look like 15x7 rallys not 8, measure the inside of the lip. I say $100-$150for 15x7's as is and $150-$200 if you clean and paint them.

With the lip they are 9" or so... I measured 8" from what looked like the outside mounting surface of the actual tire on each side. The tires are 215 and 205, so it may make them look off.

For L-R and R-F, the wierd symbol is hard to see. It coule be a backwards E or F or something like that?:confused: Oh and all of the wheels are coded FW around the valve stem.

The FW means Monte Carlo (first used in 1971), 15X7 JJ (JJ is Rally), They have a .30 inch offset from center. GM wheels were not measured by their backspacing, rather by their offset. Corvette wheels are a negative offset (-.50 on the AG wheels) and look like reversed wheels. Negative pushes the tire out and positive pushes the tire in. Rough backspace would be as follows. (7 divided 2 = 3.5 inches plus .30 offset equals 3.8 inch backspacing) I have a pair of these wheels on the back of my '70. They fit great.

The other numbers are the date codes. The K-1-6 is K=Kelsey-Hayes, 1 is the Romulus, MI plant, and the last digit (the 6 or 7) is the year, in this case 1976 and 1977.

Hope this helps.
