That would be two aluminum wheels in the spare carrier, so I'm thinkin' probably not.
Of course it may be that it came with six steel wheels, like my 1983 Excella, and a PO found a deal on four aluminum wheels somewhere and never got around to the last two. I've seen lots of adds for four wheels, but never for six.
However, my guess is that Terry got it right in post 2.
On edit: About never seeing six wheels for sale. Immediately after I posted I thought, "I haven't looked at the classifieds in a while." The second add is for six wheels and tires from a 1997 Limited. It sure doesn't take long for circumstances to make a lair out of me here on the forums.
