I am looking for two 15x8 steel wheels to mount my new drag radials on....big bolt patteren. I would like to go back to the hub-caps instead of the astro wheels Im rocking right now. Let me know if you have something you can part with or trade....need to get them asap.

Aren't those wheels on the back of your car the chrome 454SS style wheels? Dave/95brmw just posted looking for one of those... Smile

I think Brandon widened them a couple inches Cool

Also, I have a bunch of stock Caprice wheels, plain, no nubs for dog dishes. Not sure if they're 7" or 8" but I have a bunch, you can have as many as you want, save me from having to listen to my father complain Laughing

Is that the standard size on these cars? If you want to do some trading I might have a pair of steels if they are the same pattern. And yes, I am looking for those chrome wheels Very Happy

I had no clue they were 454ss wheels LOL. All I know is I snatched them off an Astro van.

I know that the Impala SS and 9c1s had the big bolt patteren. I dont know about regular civilian caprices...but it is easy enough to measure. (I have two different bolt patterens on my car. Front is small chevy 5x4.75, rear is 5x5)

I would do a trade with you as long as the wheels are 15x8. I don't want 15x7 ....i have enough of those dumb things kicking around LOL

If you find 5x5 15x8's buy them. They are getting harder to find unless you buy new repos. I bought some 8's and some 10's.

It's stamped on them. All the 9c1 wheels are 15x7.

Yup. Justin said it. 91-96 ALL b/d 5x5 and 15x7 including 9c1 rims (I have a bunch myself).

The box 9C1 is a 5x5 car as well.

Chevy trucks and conversion vans have them most commonly. I got a whole set a few years ago for $100 from a van.

They look like 9c1 rims but are not. They have slots instead of holes but they DO have the holes to bolt up the 9C1 N92 chrome center caps.

BE CAREFUL as the slotted rims come in both 7" AND 8" but there's no visual difference (besides the width)

Most commonly found in that gray color not black.

Box wagons also have 5x5 bolt pattern. I've heard the 2 seat wagons did not for some reason but that's not confirmed?

The wider truck and van Rallys can sometimes be told apart from the narrower ones by looking at the trim ring area. Also, I'm not positive but I think some of the vans had 15x6" Rally wheels at some point.

Those rallys even came on some B-bodies, namely the 1974 Impala "Spirit of America" edition... Laughing

More interesting but probably not applicable, some of the 67-72 Chevy trucks came with super wide rims that accepted a dogdish hubcap. I honestly don't know how wide they were, but they had to be 10" if not wider. Glen may know about those. I think those trucks were all 6 lug though.

I think this background vehicle from the movie "Heat" might be wearing a set of them...

71 + used 5x5. I don't think any of them came with more than 7 inch wides. Later they had some special trucks I saw with 8s. Never saw a factory 10. But it is possible.

I'm sure you wouldn't be looking for oem rims if it was cheap enough, but does anuone know what costs to widen a steel rim?

at roughly 50.00 a piece I am really considering these Cragars.

http://www.cragarwheel.com/products16-18/CragarSeries69Delux

I can get them in 15x4.5 and 15x8, and they would still look decent with the hub caps off at the track if I get the centers to go with them.

Those are pretty slick! I saw a set from another company that had some nice red pinstripe work done. I'd run them as is, but I know how you like the sleeper granny caps. The no hood thing kinda gives it away tho Wink

My vote is yes. Most "stock size" after market steel rims are around that $50 range. Make sure it's what you want!!

Can't go wrong with Cragars. I'm a Soft 8 guy myself. Smile



Glen, these are those wheels I was talking about, I guess they were Kelsey Hayes 16.5x 9.75 wheels. I don't know if they were factory, but it seems a lot of those trucks came with them.

Matt, iirc, that's a Laguna? Featured in car craft or super chevy or something back in '08/'09? I remover seeing that and think "I want my Monte Carlo to look JUST like this". Never did it except for the wheels. Hood was already there...
