Well, not really, but I was just glad to be able to make it this year!

24k miles! Nice. Sounds like there were some lucky dogs but you may be the luckiest dog of all! Smile

Lamune, nice looking car! What are those wheels from? They look a little like early 90's Cadillac FWD wheels.

They are apparently from a Caprice. Not the Impala, as the guy who I got the car from thought they were. They're not bad, I would have been happier with the Buick wheels but these hold the tires on just as well. Smile

95 Caprice wheels

It's funny, most times "wrong" wheels look weird, but in your photo they look great. Maybe its the dark color of your car with the polished wheels, but I really like it.

Thanks Mark. Their condition is pretty good for them being 20 years old. I just washed them, nothing special. Certainly not very well polished Smile

I'm not sure if those wheels were available on the Caprice wagon. Still a B body, so it's not too far off!

Like most GM aluminum wheels, they probably have that clearcoat that dries out and gets funky after too much washing with harsh cleaners......The clearcoat can be stripped with acetone, but doing those wheels would be a challenge......

It wouldn't be too hard on these- if it ever had the paint on the embossed parts, it's long gone.

There is a nice 1994 Caprice LS sedan on ebay right now with those same wheels. Mystery solved.

I didn't know this was a mystery. Those were optional wheels for 91-96 Caprice sedans.

Mom's Florida 1991 has those wheels. The spare is another full size lace aluminum wheel. Never been out of the trunk, it's beautiful. Three more and someone would have a nice set!
