The arrival of the '68 Corvette represented the most dramatic styling change in the history of the car. The car's five-slot, stamped-steel Rally Wheels, however, were essentially a carry-over from the '67 design, though with an extra inch of width and thicker beauty rings. This 15x7-inch unit was the widest wheel to date for the Corvette. By 1969, the Vette was wearing 15x8-inch steel wheels with chrome beauty rings and caps. This design would remain the base Corvette wheel through the end of the C3 line in 1982.
