As I said before if someone has a parts book for this era La Salle/Cadillac I think it will be found it is a heavy duty/commercial car wheel it is wider thus to accept larger tires and their greater width. Also see rivits.

They were all riveted in those years. The grey rim has rivets as well. Just hard to see them.

Not all Cadillac rims had the 6 lug holes. Just the C.C., Series 75, and Series 90 Cadillacs in those years.

So Kurt does this mean if I should look for a 1939 Cadillac rim since the 39 La Salle regular car rim is to small and lighter. John

Unfortunately, the only Cadillac parts manual that I have, that goes that far back, is an 8th Edition Master Body Parts Manual, which covers 1942 and prior. Rims, however, are not classified body parts.
