13 Lug rear wheels

Asked by Apr 14, 2013 at 03:32 AM about the 1967 Pontiac Catalina

Question type: General

I remember a friends old 67 Catalina with 8 lug front wheels and 13 lug (8 outer ring & 5 inner ring) rear wheels but some mechanic friends of mine say that I must be mistaken?...
Did some Pontiacs and/ or other GM models have 13 lug rear wheels?
It was a 67 400 4bbl, 2 door drop top with rear skirts.

Pontiac had what was known as the eight lug wheel. Five lugs held it the hub. Eight lugs held the outer rim. Here's a $3500 set for sale on eBay - http://www.ebay.com/itm/1960-TO-1968-RESTORED-RELINED- SHOW-QUALITY-PONTIAC-8-LUG-DRUMS-AND-WHEELS- /200913722841? pt=Motors_Car_Truck_Parts_Accessories&hash=item2ec7641dd9&vx p=mtr Plenty more pictures -- http://images.info.com/searchw?page=8&qkw=pontiac+8+lug+wheels

The 8 lug wheels went away when disc brakes arrived. From what I see, the inner part was a brake drum. I saw some that became expensive wall clocks.

13 Left-Hand lugnuts, on the left side of the car.

Thanks for all your help guys. I found what I was looking for!
