Part number is NOT stamped in Ring. The original 4 clip part number is 3901708, and the later version with all the fingers ( serations ) is 9796696, it was availiable till about 3 years ago, it still prices but is stupid expensive, and it says discontinued. The later version is on ebay from time to time. The 4 clip style is also used on 67 Corvettes and they bring a premium also.
My 06A Z28 came with and still has the 4 clip style with the oval holes and the inner lip.

No it was not. But it was stamped on the side of the Genuine GM Parts Box - brown cardboard box with aqua GM logo, black lettering and stamping. The part number was on a paper label on inside of the ring - affixed with rubber cement and meant to peal right off and most fell off before the box was ever opened. Then in later years a paper tag was floating loose inside the polybag with the ring inside the box - now some still brown and some made of white cardboard with aqua logo and black lettering.

So once you find the original part number and find a set on flea bay or other source you will have to see a decent closeup picture of all four rings if you want to be sure that the stem hole, and step as well as the clip type and mounting location of the clip are all correct for your build date, and that all four match.

A quick search of the part number Mike posted pulls this thread from Corvette forum:
http://forums.corvetteforum.com/c1-a...mber-help.html

Maybe these would be correct?

Brian, Actually these are 15X8 trim rings for Corvette, the reason they will fit a 68 Corvette with 15X7 wheels is the Corvette 15X7 wheel is deeper/different offset. They also have the wrong Valve stem holes, Z28 uses a oval hole. These will not fit the YH wheel. Below are the correct rings which are assembly line correct. Also if you can find originals even with broken clips Corvette Central sells the clips now and also repo rings that look correct in the pictures.

Re: Rally Wheel Trim Ring - Which is Correct?

Any one know if the stepped rally trip ring is produced in 15x8? I have a complete set of 15x7s and wanted to try 15x8s on the back or do I have to convert to the rounded edge?
Thanks

Not that I'm aware of. I looked high & low for a couple years and gave up. Either deep dish rounded vette rings or the 15 x 7 stepped rings that come up a little shallow.

Re: Rally Wheel Trim Ring - Which is Correct?

Hey there -

If I could join this tread. Can anyone tell me the correct factory trim ring for a 1968 Camaro with 14x6 Rally wheels code XN (drum brakes all around) with a Mar/Apr/early May 1968 production date code? Many thanks. Tommy68

Re: Rally Wheel Trim Ring - Which is Correct?

[QUOTE..... There are two correct numbers. Before recall and after recall. In the blurb below the superseded number is the part number before recall - the design with the "suicide" clips. The first number is the replacement design number with the improved and safer clip design.
.....[/QUOTE]

Not trying to be a horse's a$$, but I have never seen any documentation about a recall. If it was really a recall, then there should be almost ZERO trim rings out there with the four clips. I have a complete set on my 69 Z and several spares. If they were recalled, the owner would be notified and would take the car to the dealer where new ones would be installed, and the old ones turned back in to GM and crushed.

I have heard multiple stories on the "suicide" clip rings, ranging from ended production to recall to huge class action law suit. I am skeptical of all of those stories. I would be the first to admit I am wrong as soon as someone shows credible documentation. Not sure why some refer to them as "suicide" clips. I have never had one come off. I worked as a tech in the 70's and never had one customer complaint about losing one of those trim rings. I pulled off and put on a lot of them.

Apologies to the previous poster. I don't know the part number for the 14" rings, but guessing someone on here can come up with it. The four clip ring for my car (part #3901708) was used for at least 3 years and maybe more.
