i've got 7" and 8" rallyeb wheels on my 72 ragtop, the problem is, the trim ring designs don't match. the 7" wheels have 2.5" wide rings with a squared outer shoulder, the 8" wheels have 3" wide rings with a rounded outer shoulder. i have talked to several suppliers, been to swap meets, and can not find 2.5" and 3" wide of the same design. i know i can put the 2.5" on the 8" wheel, but they just don't look as good!!!!

Any Help/Sources Appreciated

Yep. They're different. I have never seen 7-8in trim rings that match. And I don't offer any encouragement that you will find any that match.

I have the exact same problem, and have never seen 7 and 8" trim rings of the same design, either. Maybe someday some enterprising individual will fill the need.

GM never made any that matched. the 8 inch wheel is strictly a corvette wheel.

Look to the first generation camaros for what you are trying to do. The early Zs and some SS had 8" rears and 7" fronts
