They will fit I believe. I've found ET34 ET41 & ET46 wheels on my squares. The ET will be stamped on the humps between the lug bolts.

Wheel offset (distance from the rim centerline to the mounting face at the disc/drum).

Let me clarify... I have a set of '69 stock rims from our baja project and someone wants them for their square. I was told it was "early", but have now been told it's a '71 (which I've always cosidered "late") . Sooooo... will these '69 rims fit a stock '71 square?. Any help appreciated, and thanks for the above replies as well. I don't want to sell him the wrong/will-not-fit parts. Thanks again, Dave

You have to wire wheel the paint off the knobs to see what the ET34,41,46 number is stamped on the wheels you are selling. Nobody knows what you are selling yet! ET34 wheels fit fine on my '67 square, but it wasn't lowered.
