Default 15 Ralley ii with a smaller 14 center?

I picked up a set of 5x5 15inch ralleys and didnít realize they had a smaller 14 inch center section.
I measured and they are a 15 inch rim with a 5x5 bolt pattern
Did these come with or without a trim ring?

The date code indicates it was made sept. 13 1968 JJ

I think in '67, 14 inch R IIs were a 1 year only for the Full size cars. Makes sense that in '68, they may have not graduated to a "real" 15 inch wheel but upgraded the 14 inch center.
Cool, regardless.

I grabbed the 15 inch trim rings off the 15x7 I have on the Catalina 2dr.
They do fit, the 15x6 with the small center they just show all of the smaller center. (Lower 2) unlike the bigger center 15
Iíll paint these up and run these until I can find 2 more of either style.

Anyone know the tire size they run on these? Iím going to put these on the wagon.

I'm not sure I understand this. Are you saying that the earliest 15" 5x5 rally wheels used a smaller "flange mating area" than later ones?

From the pictures I see that the lower ones look like the lug holes are out at the edge of the mating surface, while the upper ones look like the holes are centered.

I'll look at mine tonight, curious now.

North,
the center section is smaller on the early 15ís it measures like 12 1nches compared to 13 or so for the later 15ís
You can see the difference inside the trim ring. You can see the gap in the inner and outer rim seam with the early rim
