Wheels to fit 75 EMS

We have recently purchased a 75 99EMS that has been sitting for 15yrs. The car has some decent soccerball wheels on it now but the tires don't hold air. I need to get the car on a trailer to get it home. What other wheels might fit it to just make it role? I have steel wheels for our 97 9000. Is the bolt pattern the same? The car is a rust bucket but has some decent part. Anyone looking for anything?

the only wheels that will fit are pre 87 c900 wheels and 99 wheels. the 9000s have a different bolt pattern.

Remember however that the wheels on your 75 or earlier cars will not fit a newer car. The hub diameter changed when they changed the way the wheel centered.

Gosh almighty!!!
Why is this starting to get difficult?
I don't really want to roll the 99 on rims into the trailer.Yikes!
The (5) soccer rims look pretty nice
Ideas???

Like saabsbreakdown said get some wheels from any pre 87 900. All the steel wheels will fit. It was just the alloy wheels that had the differant centers in them

Thanks Marty
Let me find a photo of the 'beast'.
Gary (brother inlaw) wants the windshield and hood.
Everybody take a look...I'll see what I can get off for SOC.

It's kind of Flintstone-ish at the driver's feet.
The interior is musty as all get out...It was a back woods rally car at some point in it's life. It has about 215,000 on it.

It looks better than the 74 EMS I picked up this summer. It too is very soft in the floors, the interior is not so good too. The best part of it though is it's orange and it was $300.

Are you sure that an earlier steel wheel will fit on a 76+ car? I don't believe it.
