I’d think any 15’s would fit. That’s a lot of offset for a 6” wheel, but if you imagine adding a couple of inches to the outside of that wheel it’d be about centered. Bottom line is that unless the inner surface has a very extreme taper, any 15 should bolt right up.
Sourced the spinners on Ebay Joe.The harder parts to find were the center emblems.55 year old plastic parts don't hold up as well as metal.And yes the spinners cost more than the wheels! But I go to a lot of shows and I'm the only one with that combo,lol!
They look nice. Those wheels were made for these cars, since they were the popular cars of the day.
I never liked the big wheels on old cars and then I find out they are dangerous because the tires are too stiff for the positive camber that the suspension experiences during heavy braking.. Some say more then half the tires tread can be completely off the road during a panic stop..
@ELKYBILL , Today, cruising in my Jeep TJ I spotted this. Turned around. Spoke to mechanic (was at a shop). Owner just acquired it. The rear was 235 X 15”. Not sure rim width. Took close up of lid. Didn’t see any rust. Nice ol Elky that’s gonna get some love!!

I have been looking for weeks at different styles of wheels and non of them fit the exact look I want unless I spend thousands of $$$. The closest thing I found are Vision 143 Torque wheels. I wanted something in a 17 or 18 and staggered. My question is.... Will the below wheels fit? I believe...
I have a stock suspension 87 El camino, I purchased a seat of Iroc 16x8 front and rears, I have been reading on here that they could be run with the use of a spacer. I was looking for some clarification on do I need to put the rears on the rear with spacer or rears on the front with spacers...
Considering the large number of tire / wheel fitment questions asked about 5th Gen Caminos, I decided to incorporate a number replies I had posted over the years into a single post in the effort to share my experiences over the years with fitting larger tires to my ‘87.
In 1978, when the new “A”...
