WELL, I never thought I would buy such old parts for the wagon, but today I made a 200 mile round trip to pick these up........:eek:


They are off of a 96 SHO with a blown transmission (go figure) :p that was listed on craigslist as a parts car. After talking with the guy a couple times and telling him what they were going to be used for, he set a price of $125 for the set with tires. I did have to scrub them down really good, polish them up and even paint the pockets and backside of the rims with a metalic graphite wheel paint. One wheel has 2 small blisters on the backside (about 1 / 1.5 inches across) a small blister on the outer lip ( about 1/4 inch) and a slight rim leak. Nothing to drastic to keep me from getting the antiques for the wagon. I'll post pictures of them on the car tomorrow.

They will look nice. Are you keeping your old wheels for snow tires.

You can fix that rim leak with RTV. A GM TSB calls for it's use for that specific reason reason.

You just need to find the source of the leak in a tank of water.
