I am racing a -64 Chevelle in the La carrera panamericana and we can only use stock wheel diameter. Does anybody know if a -64 or -65 Chevelle was ever sold with 15 inch wheels?
For more info of my car you can go to: www.eimsdirect.com/race

In 1965 the Z-16 Chevelle came with 15 inch wheels.

I bought my car with 14 inch wheels and the odometer was a tenth of a mile slow and I put 15s on my '71 and it ran perfect;test it in between mile markers if it is street legal

Jerry,

Both books I have show that all 201 factory Z-16 chevelles still ran a 14" rim and tires.

Are you sure some of them came with 15" or could these have been dealer installed?

Just wondering if my books are wrong or not?

What size were the tires on each though? It's the overall diameter of the tire that makes the difference.

The only 15" wheels my GM catalog shows are for a Passenger car in that year. Chevelles still had 13" and 14" wheels. 67 Chevelles still had 14" tires/wheels.

Rich I think you are right,sorry about the misinformation.I checked a couple of sources I have and they both said that the Z-16 came with 7.75 x 14 wheels.There is a web site under search in Yahoo for Chevelle Z-16 that lists 15 inch wheels as standard on the Z-16 but now I have my doubts.Again sorry for the misinformation.Jerry
