Wheel Identity

Hello.

Some other guys and I have been trying to figure out the exact identity of this wheel. They came off of a '79 Firebird donor car and are currently holding my '50 Chevy truck off the ground. They look like a lot of other wheels, but I've yet to find a 100% match online any where. Are they Pontiac wheels?

It's a steel wheel, with rubber/poly like insert. You can see where the silver paint is wearing off of the rubber/poly. The fins are actually flexible (but stiff).



I can guess on their origination until I'm blue in the face, but I can't find anything online to back up the guess. I thought maybe you guys might want to take a shot.

They do not appear to be a PMD wheel.

I'm beginning to think they come from outer space!

Looks like a lincoln continental, but I don't think the bolt pattern is the same. Maybe it's a catalina?

Might be from a '73 El Camino. That is my closest lead right now.
