Mark,

My white hardtop that I bought from the original owner came with a chrome ralley wheel spare tire.  The silver convertible also came with the spare tire on a ralley wheel. I assume this because you'd need to rotate the spare tire with the other four per Buick's recommended proper tire maintenance.

If you guys want to be correct on these wheels,turn them over.Original 65 wheels are welded to the center in only four places.Now compair it to a original 66 wheel. Welded all the way around the center. This is one of the upgrades as to the strength of the wheel.      Tom

Anybody have 2 extra ones laying around?
I've got 3, would like the option of original wheels vs the torque thrusts.
