15 inch is the original one. Why would you be getting the 14 inch?
Michael: Kitt what matters to me is who you are not what you look like. Sure we don't have the car so we can't turbo boost so we can't go over 200 miles an hour but it was all icing on the cake anyway

Cuz they are a lot less expensive and look pretty much the same to me.. Im concentrating on other stuff at the moment with my funds (SPM) so 14" are fine... plus I already have two 14" wheels

I see, but is it really that much more expensive? They are just hub caps, not alloys?

I think i should explain this one :good: As you can see my signature :mrgreen:

KITT has the WS6 suspension which had 15x7 turbo cast wheels with the black hubcaps.The reason these are RARE and HARD TO FIND is that WS6 was a HIGH dollar option,So not many were ordered that way and only 1982 and early 83 Trans Am's and firebird S/E's could have them.The 14" version where more common and were standard on the 1982 Trans am and 1982 Firebird S/E and available until 1984 !!

With a "Credible source" I knew a few years back he had the official count at 36,392 cars that were ordered with 15" turbo cast and most have been scrapped !!! :(
