^ ^ ^ You would think, right? I check each day. A few sets of 4, but no ad for a single wheel.

What's that expression- Close but no cigar? The bolt pattern was good, but the seller neglected to tell me the wheel was a 6". I don't think it will clear the calipers.
And yes, we're not that far apart. Perhaps we can meet up at a car show in the not too distant future .

For sure. I've been at the receiving end of a few philanthropic gestures from forum members. I try to do likewise when I can.

Is there a problem using a 15 x 6 wheel for a spare? Many 15 x 6 wheels were used on 1970s GM products with disc brakes. I have a set that came on 1970-1975 Chevelles, Malibus. I am using one of these wheel for a spare on my 64 (with 65 disc brakes.

Now if you are really holding out for a 15 x 7 wheel, that is a different story.
