If the 3 that you bought are a "match" why don't you post a snapshot of the wheel (they aren't all the same) and the casting information from the back-side so you can get an "exact" match to complete your set. If the set you have is a 4 X 9.5 the 2 lefts you have should be the same code and you'd like to match the code of the right you have now. If yours are 2 X 8.5 and a single LH 9.5 then you of course want the opposite side to match the code on the LH rear you have.

The more information you supply, the more likely you're going to be able to complete the set.

Your user ID suggests the set isn't intended for a 'Vette install.

Adding your location to the post might help you considerably also.

I don't know how to upload pics from my phone. I am also located in Cleveland ohio. I have 3 wheels all are 9.5" and I know that 2 of them are left and one of them is right so I need a right wheel that is 9.5"

They made several salad shooter wheels. Main difference is the center color where the lugs go. The factory ones on my 86 are all the same machine finish look but I has seen them with a grey center piece. Email me a pic I'll help you out. Espop125@comcast.net

There's nothing to be learned from that image. The information needed to get an "exact" match is on the wheel back-side like I mentioned.

I don't have any to compare but there should be substantially more information on those wheels than what you've mentioned. There were 2 vendors for them I believe Enkei and Modern. I've always thought that for sure the Enkei had the "brand" cast on the wheel back-side. I've never checked or seen information posted regarding the Modern. If there's no "branding" maybe it would be safe to assume it's a Modern wheel and you should be looking for '84 - '85 replacement to go with yours.

Check all of your wheels closely for these codes on the back-side somewhere: FJ or FM on the lefts and FK or FR on the right. Those would be early Modern I believe.

AN Enkei might have an XDN on the left and XDP on the right.

Regardless I believe there should be more!

I saw your post still looking and I've got some questions for you and a link to some snapshots that will give you a "hint" where to look for wheel information. Did you measure the wheel width yourself? If you measured the wheels yourself and the total width of the wheel is the 9 1/2" that you've mentioned then the wheels are actually only 8 1/2" wheels. The total width of a wheel is generally a dimension of 1" greater than the tire bead width. A true 9 1/2" wheel would measure close to 10 1/2".

Here's an eBay ad and if you look at the snapshots you can see where the wheel information is on the back-side between the vanes on the disc aspect of the wheel. Look again at yours! You may need to clean them. The wheel back-side snapshots are the last three and if you do the "mouse-over" they're quite visible.

Yes, i know how to measure wheels. from inner lip to inner lip they are all 9.5, and also i cannot find any information on the back once again. they all have the grey centers too.

Gray centers are 87 only. You just need to figure out if you need a left or right.

An actual RH '87 would likely have the code XDP on the disc between the vanes on the back-side but for you if you don't mind painting the centers to match you could use any of the RH 9.5's. You know how to measure, some/most don't. If the fellow on the other end doesn't know the total width should be something very near 10 1/2". Happy hunting!!
