1973 Delta wheels

Hello,
I have a 1973 Delta 88 with standard 15" steel wheels, unfortunately
the car had no spare when purchased. I'm in Australia & old style rims are
"thin on the ground". These wheels seem to be different from Pontiac rims,
just tried one & the centre Axle hole is too small. Are the rims the same
as Cadillac or Chev? Also, the stud holes look a bit flogged out on my rims,
the nuts mustn't have been tight or something, might be better off getting
mags if I can find ones to suit,

any help appreciated

Cus

Here are the wheels I have on my 71 98:

As you found out, when you buy a spare wheel for your 73 Delta 88 the thing you have to be careful about is the center bore diameter. I wanted to run Cragar Soft 8s on my 71 98 but when I called Cragar for help with fitment issues they were rude and didn't give me dimensions on the center bore diameter or the depth of the spinner. So, I bought the Eagle Alloys.

FWIW, I believe any 1991-1996 Chevy B/C body (ie. Chevy Impala SS, Chevy Caprice, Olds CC, Buick Roadmaster etc.) wheel will fit on our cars without any problems. Hopefully someone else can confirm this.

From what I can see in the parts book the wheels should be part number 3972722 which were used on most full size (88 & 98 models) from 1969 to 1974. I'm in Aus too and have had good results for odd stuff like this through Craigslist (best to search using the iPhone Ap called CSmart for Craigslist).
