    Hey folks, I am looking at a set of 56 Cadillac sabre wheels for my 55 Buick Special. I know the bolt pattern is the same but not sure about the hub. I am not near my cars and can't find the actual hub size online. Anyone have an insight they can share so I can see if the wheels will work?

    Don't know if it helps, but I have a 1970 Cad rear end in my 49 Buick. The 49 Buick wheels fit and so do the 54 Skylark wire wheels I just bought. So my guess is they all have the same center hole in them from at least 49-70. I believe Olds is the same also

    Sometime after 1964 the register size of Buicks became smaller. Factory mag wheels from a '70, while sharing the bolt circle 5 on 5'' don't fit my '64 not sure about the '50s
