15x7" steel wheels - what had them

I have been trying to locate a set of 15x7" steel wheels to use with my "doggie dish" hub caps. 15x6"s are all over the place but I cant seem to source any 7's. I pulled a set off an 81 caprice last night that turned out to be 6". I figured a big car like that would have 7" wheels. So what cars came with a regular 7" steel wheel? Might make my search easier if I know what to look for in the salvage yards.

The early 70's Monte Carlo's had 15x7 rally wheels. If you are looking for a plain steel wheel, I believe these cars had them also. Dont' know the backspace, but I have a set on the rear of my '67. It's lowered 2 inches with 255/60 tires.

Not looking for rally wheels. Those things are all over in 15x7. I want the plain steel with the ears for hub caps. Im wondering what somewhat more recent cars might have had them since the older stuff is few and far between in the yards near me now days.

Most 70's station wagons.
