    I got my 62 Special parts car today and when I was going thru it I noticed the wheels were 15" with a 4 bolt pattern????? And then saw 4 hub caps that fit which have the Buick coat of arms.....where or what are these wheels from??? thumbnail (1).jpg

    That buddy is a score! The 15" wheels were an option and are rather hard to find. Most have/had the small dog dish hub caps. If those hub caps are correct and original they are rather rare.

    Again good score 2x!

    Thanks Keith but the hub caps are full size.:(:(
    So with these 15" would the diff be different than that for a 13" wheel??

    To my knowledge the rear differential is/was the same. I have never heard anyone say any different.

    Going from the 13" up to the 15" may change the speedometer reading.

    Cool, so if there is a transmission gear I should be able to swap that over to my Skylark. They sure fill the wheel well with 15" tires in there!!
