Hi spencer1984,

Concerning your wheels, the best I can come up with is a set I have had for many, many years. I believe they came in an AMT 1970/71 Corvette kit from that time. They look very much like those. I'll try to send a clear picture or I'll just send you the wheels if you like.

AMT 70 1/2 Camaro Z28.

I want to go out like my grandfather, nice and peaceful in his sleep. Not screaming and crying like the passengers in his car.

Unfortunately, the ones in the 70 1/2 Camaro are the stock wheels - the ones I need are oversized versions of that style from Year One. I was hoping there may have been a kit out there that used them, like how the Revell Foose '67 Charger had the oversized Mopar Rallyes.

Looks like there isn't, so I'm going to go with plan "B": I'll use the wheels from a 1/18 Chevy to get the right look in 1/25. Thanks for the suggestions!

Check the newer style Revell 55 chevy 2 in 1. They are very close to what you're after.

I went ahead and got a 1/18 Chevelle that had the right style to try my experiment.  This is one as it came on the Chevelle, and one modified to use the tires from Revell's '09 Challenger:

Overall I think it works pretty well:
