Re: New guy needs info
One of the problems you are having is that Riviera wheels (also known as Buick road wheels) were made by Buick, not Cragar. (which is why they fit)
5X5 wheels were used on Chevy trucks in the 80's for a while. I think you need to call a wheel company (not an auto parts store) and find out what they suggest. I put later road wheels on my 63, but I had to cut out the ring on the back since they were meant for a disc brake car.

John, I don't know where you're hailing from but if you go to any of the big flea markets around the country there are always vendors who specialize in wheels. They should be able to help you.
