    Forgive my ignorance, but are these all 15" x 7"?

    I haven’t measured their widths. They were in the car when I bought it. I’m not tracking any other widths besides 15x7 for a 15in OEM wheel. I know there are 14in wheels but not sure about any different size for 15in.

    Ryans-GSX Have fun, life is short.

    I have a hard time believing that the rear wheels are 15x7 as that size rim won't hold a 295/50/15 without really bulging out big time.

    The distance between the crease and the valve stem is different front to back...

    they bulged big time for sure, but they fit! Here’s the car wearing them. I replaced these futura tires with the coopers in the same size 4227E5A1-9076-4D5E-B21E-F15BA49677EB.jpeg

    Can you check the back side of the rims and see if there is a code stamped into the inside lip? I'm looking for some original '72 model 15" wheels with a "WM" code. When I'm home later I will post a photo of the exact area so you can see where the code would be stamped. I live in the Nashville area.

    WP is correct for 71 to 87 15 X 7 Buick wheels

    WM is the '72 15x7 wheel code I need to find to replace the missing spares for 2 of our '72s. I only know the '72 code (WM), so I can't speak for the '71 or the '73-up cars but according to Duane, the WP is a '73-up 15x7" wheel. I know he's studied Buick wheel codes in the past.

    Here is another Wheel chart that includes the WM code wheels. I believe this is/was Duane's chart referenced above and in the links.

    The current price seems pretty reasonable to me. How many miles have been put on the tires? I am thinking there is still plenty of tread left.

    Yeah, I was using a BCA chart from 2002 which is also in the second link. Duane states it is missing some info. I'm sure Duane's info is more accurate.

    the tires have ~3000 miles on them and are in good shape with plenty of life. Any takers?
