Since the wheels normally came with a two letter designation identifying what they were made for, but several vehicles used the same size. I would think if the dealer carried replacement wheels they would be lacking that code. If the wheels cme from the local parts department the two letter code might not be there. This is pure guesswork, perhaps somebody can confirm this was or was nor possible.

What does the rear of the wheels look like? Can you post a picture of the back? Factory wheels have a nice press/spotweld look as opposed to welded beads, If so.... the centers could be GM, the rim aftermarket.

I didn't have a camera with me, but did see the factory twin oval spot-welds. Definitely not aftermarket welded rims.
