New member. 1972 Delta 88 Convertible

Recommended Posts

Longtime Olds fanatic. New member with a recent purchase of an extremely clean one owner ‘72 Delta 88 vert.
I really like the look of the SSIV wheels that were offered that year and am looking for a complete set for this car. Does anyone know which trim rings will fit these wheels and look the closest to stock? Finding a set of originals is proving to be difficult.

Past Oldsmobile’s:
1977 Delta 88 Royale 4 door 403 (my first car!)
1978 Ninety Eight 2 door 403
1973 Ninety Eight 4 door 455
1980 Delta 88 4 door 307
1984 Delta 88 4 door 307

Welcome to the Olds forum/ but cant help in what you are looking for. Try and call French Lake Auto Parts.

I'm sure you know that SSIV wheels are rare.  Others have reported that the repro Pontiac short trim rings work, though they are not exactly the same as original.

Best option for SSIV trim rings if you can't find good originals (and they are hard to find without road-rash) is a set of 1988-97 GM pickup 15" trim rings. They don't have the bevel the originals do but they will fit in the recess between the polyurethane section and the wheel outside rim. 

 

You can also use the narrow trim rings 77-79 Thunderbird/Cougar Polycast wheels used, but that's stealing from someone who might need them for one of those cars (and nothing else works on those). A lot of the Chevy truck pieces were takeoffs from people putting aftermarket wheels on those pickups.
