    I'm trying to figure out what kind of wheels these are on my 1964 Oldsmobile Dynamic 88.
    They came with the car when I purchased it about 15 years ago.

    The bolt pattern is 5x5

    They are a decent turbine style wheel that I may consider keeping on the car but i'm missing one wheel. They remind me of the Lincoln wheels of the 70's. I've googled all types of oem wheels and can't find a match.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks,
    Dan

    What does that center cap on the rear wheel look like up close? I tend to agree they have a Lincoln OEM look and some years of Ford, Mercury and Lincoln used the 5" bolt circle. Mopar was typically 4.5" and 5.5" on select cars and truck, no 5" to my knowledge.

    Somewhere in the '60s, there was an obscure optional alloy wheel offered by Olds. I saw a set on a 98 once 40 years ago, but can't say if yours are those ...
     
  4. Don't have one of the OEM hubcaps do you? I don't see these without them....

    Saw a Facebook post from "Barn Finds" of a 1965 Mercury Park Lane Marauder that's sporting wheels very similar to yours...not exact, but close.

    There is a Cadillac center cap on the rear wheel. But i've searched a ton of Cadillac OEM wheel styles and couldn't find a match

    I have some original 1964 Oldsmobile hubcaps (because i have 3 1964 Oldsmobiles) but the only center cap I see I thought was for a cadillac but now that i take a closer look, it might be something different.

    Isn't the bolt pattern on that car 5on4.75? If so, wouldn't that leave out the Ford wheels?

    Pontiac, Olds, Buick and Cadillac of that era has 5 on 5” bolt pattern. Various year Edsel, Ford and Mercury models have 5 on 5”

  18. They sort of resemble the alloy wheels used on late 70's Linc-Merc cars but not quite.[​IMG]

    I couldn't find any FoMoCo wheels that match.
