Good, I was startin t get a lil worried.
But then again, I dont think I've ever had a reason to mail anything that far. So I have no idea how long "the usual" is.
Thanks again

I wish I knew. They came with the car and dont have any writing or marks or anything. How would I go about finding out what kind they are?

Look like they're from an '05(new model) 'Stang. The center cap is one of those tri-blade thingies with the Ford logo in the middle, hence why they're not there.

Surely a wheel from a Stang wont fit a Buick scratch will it?

Nice car and yes the wheels look good.

I wouldn't think that they would fit... But after I got a good look and compared that pic to my wheel, they are identical(less the center cap). Thx for the help Ilan. There will be more picsSOON... My Riv is nice(as they all are), but I humbley bow in respect to you guys(u know who u are) who have devoted so much time and money to your Riviera that you make the rest of us drool

I believe the bolt pattern is just a a couple mm less than ours and the Regals. Lots of Mustang rims show up on the Regal GS cars. They will bolt on, but really ought to use an adapter ring for a correct fit.

Looks like you get to choose from "Mustiera" or "Riv-stang."

Either way, I gotta agree, those wheels sure do look nice! Very sharp-looking, as though the front face of the spokes makes a razor edge with the rest of the wheel behind it.

I will look into getting adapter rings. There is a VERY LITTLE shake under braking(barely noticable). I suspected the rear rotors. The front ones were just turned back in April. Would a front wheel bearing cause a lil shake??? Cuz i think my Front left is shot. I plan on takin it to a shop to get a diagnosis before I play the part changing game.

Those wheels look like they came off of a 05-08 Mustang. They look identical to the ones on my neighbor's v6 Mustang! Good pics for a cell phone BTW!!

Looking good! Either way, the first ones look real nice even though they are taken with a cell regardless.
