    Seems like it's more likely to be a 7" wheel, which if measured rim edge-to-edge will read 8".

        Leonard,

        I may be run out of town for not being "frugal", but I bought new 6" rims for my Daytona for $37 each. They are Hayes# 82552 or NWRA# X-40273. Fit fine, work with Turner disk brakes, and use the smaller "Studebaker" lug nuts.

        I am told that these were used on '83-'92 Ford 4X4 Rangers and Bronco IIs. Maybe the boneyard has one of these.

                    Leonard,

                    You've got about $27 invested in those four wheels off the 5th Avenue. Before you go exchanging them, please note that they may be worth substantially more than that EACH.

                    Mopar police cars on that body sported 7x15 steel wheels (measured where the tire bead rides). They are about 8 inches across the entire rim. If those are what you have, there is a real demand amongst some of us with late Larks AND the Mopar folks.

                    So far as 6x15 wheels go, they were standard on lots of full sized Mopar cars of the mid/late 1960's and '70's. Furys and such.

                    Enjoy!

                        Leonard,
                        The wheel Rerun makes reference to, X-40273, is also used on most all late model full size Ford Crown Vics., LTDs (full size only, not the fox platform) small Ranger pick ups (as BP states), and many other applications in the NWRA catalog..... or mabe on line? OBTW, IIRC, that # is the wheel Bob Helm sells new in TW. Remember when buying used, always take a tape measure for checking width and offset, a wheel stud circle guage, and try to get access to an empty front drum or rotor to spin em' on. Saves a trip to swap a bent one. Hope this helps.

                                I have been trying to find a single rust hole in any of these cars in your pictures. Can't. Is that what life is like outside of Michigan?
                                It boggles my mind. That yard has better stuff than most of our used car lots.
