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.

and they took down my picture already,,geez is there any public domain at all? It was just a wheel and tire of a '67 Catalina. whitewall, typical 60's


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!
