'66 Olds Wheels

As you know, I picked up a '66 Olds Dynamic 88 2door from my wife's grandfather awhile back. I am looking for some wheels to put on it for now. The bolt pattern is 5x5 I believe. Is there anything out there as far as stock wheels go that would fit and look decent? I don't want to stick a ton of money into this car right now(at least until the S10 and Jag are done)
Someone said that the 94-96 Impala SS wheels are 5x5, but what else is out there that would fit? Here is a pic of it...lets here what you think. And before anyone says anything I am looking for something cheap/used that I can pick up at a wrecking yard or swap meet. Later on down the road it'll probably get billet wheels and air ride.Thanks.

Later,
WEIMER

What about rims from a 78-81 vette. they look good polished up, they're a nice width. Not sure the bolt pattern but should fit. Or you could round up some nice Olds rally wheels from the late 70's should be easy to find and still be right model.

Vette wheels are 5x4.75...that is what is on my S10 right now. I don't know about the newer vettes though.

They made some of them early ralley wheels that were 5x5. I can see them in my head, but I don't have a pic of the ones I have. Our '67 Chevy Stepside is 5x5, and it tough to find a cool looking stock wheel with that pattern. I'll try to find a pic of them.

The pickins' are might slim for factory 5 X 5's, what about the '93-'96 Caprice alloy wheels?



I think they are 16's but they are definitely different and would fit, or a set of 15 X 7 half ton PU stock rims with moons and trim rings. If you were going to lower it I'd go with Moon discs but they look all wrong on a stock height car, it has to be in the sub-soil for those to look good. I've seen guys run the 15 X 8 Chevy/GMC truck Rallye's on full size GM cars but they really don't look right on a car.

I know Pontiac and Buick made their Rally wheels in 5 X 5 but those are probably hard to come by now. I don't remember seeing a pre-'77 full size Olds with rally's but just because I never saw any doesn't mean they don't exist.

The Buick ralley wheels of the early 70s are a nice looking wheel and were available in the 5x5 pattern for the big cars.

If I remember right any large 60's or 70's B-O-P car was 5x5...... Buick rally's would look good on that.

I know my mom's '89 Caprice Classic Wagon is 5x5, but I'm sure you don't want old guy hubcaps on it

Thought I'd add a little of my style to it...
I like the look of the wheels, maybe even look good with some Cragar SS wheels also.
Later,
WEIMER

p.s. NO SPINNERS!!!!

Full size '55-'70 Chevies had a 5 X 4-3/4 BC, '71-'76 and the '91-'96 had 5 X 5.

I believe the '77-'90's had 5 X 4-3/4 except wagons which were 5 X 5. I "think".
