Those are 1985 GN wheels. They are basically T-type wheels with areas between the spokes painted black.


I bet you're right. I forgot about those! At the time the only GN wheels I was thinking about were these:

I had forgot about the Vector look-a-likes. They are nearly identical.

Vector on the Left, Buick wheel on the Right.

1985 GN's are pretty rare, so not many people have seen one and the wheels are unique to that model. There were more than 10X more of the 1986/1987 GN's built than the 1985's. Many people don't know that isn't brake dust in between the spokes, its black paint.

I have a set of the 1985 GN wheels in my garage so I can easily spot them.

I had seen them before but I had totally forgotten about them.

Those are early GN wheels on a "blacked out" Regal limited.

Thanks for posting the pics. Some pretty cool cars there.
The alloy '85 GN wheels do look very much like the American vectors.
