71 Trim rings for honey comb wheels

New member looking for some advice. I have a nice set of trim rings that I purchased from Classic Ind that I would like to use on my orig honey comb wheels on my 71 TA. My issue is that I can get three clips to secure to the rim but not the fourth. The rims are in great shape and have no visable warpage to them. The trim rings are true as well so I am wondering if anyone else has had this issue. Tires are 245x60x15 BF Goodrich.....HELP!!

Jim

Are the clips interfering with anything, wheel weight, tire stem, etc?
Have you contacted Classic Industries?

Yes I did the obvious remedies but they just will not fit, I tried Classic today no answer. I spoke with Firebird Central today and they say the quit selling the ones that are repoped becuase of the quality. Knew exactly what I was facing before I could ever get the words out. I even tried to put them on my Ralley II rims, same issue. Looks like I will have to go without them or find a NOS set.....good luck with that.

I assume you are satisfied with them and they fit your wheels securely?

They are Ralley wheels 15" and do not use clips like the originals. They have toothed sections which use tension to hold them on. I believe they also carry the original style with clips.

ok so they are RalleyII wheels and not honeycomb? I did see on the Ames website they do sell the 15 inch 73-76 trim rings for honeycomb wheels so I may call them tomorrow. I do realize the the 71 and 72's did not come orig but I just like the way the look.
