    I have a set on my 64 wildcat now and I have found the 64 wheels and caps and have no use for these all good with spare and nice wildcat centers on riveria caps. I had to put spacers on them to fit 64.

    Also I need rear drums for 64 finned alum and a guy has a 66 - 68 riv posi unit with drums and don't know if they will fit 64 full size wildcat or what year will fit my car. I don't need the posi unit but has complete unit.

    Buick Rallye wheels will not fit a 67 Electra. You need Buick 5 on 5 Road wheels.

    The ones pictured in the second post are Road Wheels (look like a ‘70 Riviera with short skirts) and should fit.

    A member from overseas once posted an excellent chart of Buick Road wheels and years produced and fitment. Might have been "bad boat tail"

    thanks - haven't checked in for a while - work....

    5 on 5? sorry - i'm lost with that reference is that PCD and rim width?

    I'd be happy with some steel rims to replace the current ones - but no idea were to get them - Buicks are few and far between down here in NZ.

    cheers,

    5x5" is 5 bolts and 5 inches between them.. Also known as 5x127mm..

    Not a lot of cars are running that, specielly with ET0 in offset/backspacing so I made adapters.. They are 35mm thick, to compensate for ET35 and then 10 holes.. 5x127mm for bolting them on the hubs, and 5x114,3 to fit my replacement wheels..

    What's wrong with your current wheels?

    If you're interested we can see how much shipping would be. Hopefully not too much.

    cool - got it. metric down this way.

    Wheels -one has after sand blasting exposed that it had been welded up in the past along a rolled edge (and the shjock mount on the diff has a corresponding repair - indicating someone has hit something...) and the other one of the two was heavily rusted on the inside.

    So, risk it or replace it. figured better to replace them all.

    I have a freight forwarding company in CA I can use / have used for various parts (we have bought down a firewall cut for some repairs to convert the car back to LHD from RHD (it was converted to RHD in 1968 when it came into NZ - they welded the steering box into the chassis and its leaking - only way to repair is to pull the engine and cut the chassis leg, so figured we may as well turn it back to what it was)).

    any help appreciated - there must be someone who remanufactures these wheels?

    You can get all kinds of replacement wheels, on ebay, summit, jegs and so on.. In little Denmark, we have a vendor that specilizes in rims and wheels for US cars, so could be you have one too?

    The larger "Road Wheels" with the 5 0n 5 bolt pattern changed in midyear 1967 with the introduction of the disk brake option. Code 802 wheels will fit only the front drum brakes. Code 853 wheels will work with the disk brakes. Both will work over the rear cast iron brake drums. Code 895 is for the 71 through 78 models. There is a difference in the back spacing between the 802/853 and the 895 wheels. There are also differences in center hole diameters. Wheels with register rings will not fit 1964 and earlier hubs without spacers or removal of the register rings. The 64 wheel will fit the earlier hubs.

    In '64, the Road Wheel was only available on the Wildcat. Very rare, especially if the Wildcat center emblem is there.
