Hello, I want to email those salvage yards to see if I can get these 8 spoke pug alloys: <img src="http://images.cardomain.com/member_img_b/267000-267999/267346_162.jpg" style="border:0;"/>
but they need specific stuff right? So....
they are off of a 505 right? but what year(s)
they are 15 inch X (?)
do they have a part number or something else to identify them?
will I need the lugs and lugnuts too?

They are 15"; came off 505, 505S, and 505GLS models and maybe even more (don't know the years but '85 and '86 ring a bell. Specify they must NOT be 390 wheels (390 will be on the wheel as well as part of the tire size designation). The 390 wheels are a metric 15" wheel and are actually around 15-1/2" in diameter. Only Michelin makes tires for them and they are frightfully expensive (around $200 per tire if you can still get them). You'd do well to attach a jpg of the wheel since there's more than one style of 15" Pug wheels around. As a matter of fact my son is planning on putting his set on the market soon around $130 for the set of 4 with the lug nuts. We're just waiting for someone to let us know he doesn't want them. By the way, if you find a set, make sure they come WITH the lugnuts. They are in demand and pricey also. New they are around $9 EACH; I'm seen them on the USMB for around $20 per set plus shipping (sometimes even more).

I'm pretty sure that those particular wheels are the later style 15" alloys. I think they ran from '87-'90 or so. They are 15x6 wheels.

My 87 Peugeot had thos wheels
The car designations are :

505,505 S, 505 GLS, 505 SW8(Wagon) and 505 STX
They were 4CYL N/A, 4 CYL Turbo, 4 CYL Diesel and some were even 6 CYL(V-6) Gas.. STX only though(but not all the stx)
All are RWD.
Some are auto, some are 5 spd
All are 4 door, including the SW8, which is a 4 dr wagon
As far as I know, the wheels you want were available on any model, however they were most common on the 505 S turbo and the 505 STX.
And while it is possible that Ed is right about what years they were available(85-86), I have only ever seen them on the 87-90 cars.

Good luck, hope this helps.

I'll defer to others' opinion on the years for the wheels in question.
