Yep, I bought and then resold a set about a year ago.  I was told they were 15x7 when I bought them on ebay.  Went to get tires and the rim just about fell through the tire. >:(    They came on the mid-late 70's Grand Lemans and Grand Prix.  Hard to see but these would be 14x6... http://sfbay.craigslist.org/nby/car/307407303.html

The 14x6 wheels were on the late 70's and early 80 midsize cars. ( Grand Prix, Le Mans, and the" Bonneville from 1982-1986") for the most part.

That sure clears up some confusion for me.  I was at a swap meet and saw an old beat up grand prix with snowflakes on it.  At first I thought that someone had stuck them on there from a T/A but then I looked closer and really thought that they were too small.  Now I know that they really were smaller than normal.


Final poster of my car, and yes, that's my lady as well.
