Hello Rick and welcome to the CLC forum.

I suggest you repost in the classified section of the forum where you're likely to obtain better results and type "WTB" in your heading.

Again, welcome aboard.

Paso Robles Auto Wrecking, north of town on Monterrey St, used to have some older cCads. That was some years ago, but it might be worth a call.

Thanks Jim I will give them A call .What sucks is I just recently moved from Paso Robles.That's the way it always works right?   The only reason that I am looking for these wheels is I want to run A set of 62 caps on the car that I bought at Turlock swap meet. I have been told that is the only wheel they will fit. Thanks again .Rick M

So, you know, THIS is the Wanted section, so posting in the 'for sale' section will only get you a sale on your other wheels. So you know, ALL 61-64 Cadillac wheels are the same, except for the series 75 and cc wheels which ARE the same but riveted in addition to being welded. There are no 1962 only wheels. HTH, Jeff

You didn't say for sure if you were going to run those caps on a Cadillac or not, but they will fit on 5 lug GM truck rallys which are 5 on 5 lug pattern. Don't know if they will fit your car or not. There are millions of those around.

Yes, the 5x5 is the Cadillac pattern. The tricky part is the Cadillac outer lip is 1/4" wider to accommodate the wheel covers. Thus the special wheel weights for Cadillacs which have a flat rim hugging tab before the weight so the wheel cover lays flat. Most of the other GM wheels fit within the Cadillac wheels of stacked. Also, the center hub of the wheel is concave to fit the deep wheel covers. In 69, they flipped the hub and it became convex since the wheel covers where more shallow. All interchange guides I have state 61-64 Cad only.  HTH, Jeff
