bullheimer i pulled a wheel off and tried one. they must be the smaller ones, hole centers were not big enough. so the hole issue didn't come up. now i get to sell them off. more junk laying around the house till then

enjenjo If they are from a Skylark Grand Sport, they won't fit, they would be a 4 3/4" bolt pattern. If they are Riviera Grand Sport, they will be 5" bolt pattern and will fit. The factory Grand Sport Riviera wheels don't really have a center hole, the center is cone shaped, and they might fit without modification.

bullheimer somebody just gave me 4 factory buick mags off a Grand Sport. they wont go on, i'm sure because of the size of the middle holes on my car, but i am just wondering what the hole centers are on them if anyone knows. thx

hp246 Any Machine shop can open these up for you. Just had a wheel done for a project. Anywhere from $25- $50 each.

bullheimer that is exactly what they did with a torch, if you look closely

enjenjo As I recall the 62 Buick had a larger center hole than the later ones, and many custom wheels won't fit unless the pilot is turned down, or the center of the wheel opened up.

Cause you're not looking in the right places. The LeSabre uses the 5x5" bolt pattern, same as all 71-76 GM full size cars, as well as a lot of half ton trucks. There are a LOT of wheels out there that fit.
