STILL CONFUSED about RIMS


I know that our Cdn.Pontiacs are basically female Chevys and I think the '49-'52 runs a 5 x 4.5" or 5 x 4.75"  15" rim with the 5 riveted dogfish hubcap clips.

The US ponchos are 5 x 5" and only have 3 clips.

My question is: Should I be looking for CDN. Chevy rims or are the OEM CDN. Pontiac ones different?

49-53 Chevy and Canadian Pontiac are the same, with 5 clips. 54 change for no clips, or embossed center rims. So, hub caps for 54 are one year only (but can be fit on later year).

5 clips rims can't be replaced by 3 clips one.

 

Hope this help.

I need minimum one, but would like 2 so I can have an OEM spare. My current spare appears to be a '54 (according to Fitz). If you want to part with any my brother lives in your neck of the woods, or I have a friend in 

Vancouver. I'd be most grateful. I'm getting close to paint stage and want to get all the wheels done at the same time.

That's Canuck.   A guy I knew in the USA couldn't believe there was a hockey team called the "Canucks", he thought it was a derogatory term.

 I guess 21 years of living in the US away from the hinterland and having to spell words without 'u' in them causes brain damage!

I'm also not allowed to say 'eh!' anymore.

 I highly encourage adding 'u' where appropriate and saying "eh" as much as possible.  It's good for soul!  smile

Besides, say it enough and it'll catch on among your friends.  Soon all of the US will be saying "eh" and meaning it, and the world will be a better place! wink

Just messin' around...  Happy Friday!
