Well, this one was long overdue! YearOne has finally announced 17-inch diameter versions of the classic Super Stock II wheels, that were originally found in 14- and 15-inch diameter on the Cutlasses of the late ’60s and early ’70s. Always a good looking wheel, they’re at a bit of a disadvantage due to their size, if you’re looking for tire choices in today’s market.
YearOne has offered Olds owners 17-inch versions of the SSI or “Magnum style” wheel for several years, but this changes everything!
