Thanks for the replies. I'll check the swap meets for rims and tires.

Everyone always forgets AMC! AMC, FoMoCo, and most Chryco rear drive cars use 4.5x5 bolt pattern wheels. Small Jeeps use them, but they are usually deep offset. Stay away from Ford and Chevy small 4x4 wheels also -- they have deep offsets too. And then Toyota big cars and trucks use the same pattern, and I think one or two other Japanese larger cars (likes the old Toyota Crown and Cressida, if they have the five lug wheels).

Thanks for this additional info. I'll go to the bone yard and look if I can't find them in a swap meet.

Seon, you probably already know this, but take a quick measure of your hub flange where the center hole fits. It's embarrassing to find the 4.5X5 rims, mount and balance your tires and then find out the wheel will not go on because the center hole is too small. Bet I'm the only guy to ever do that!?

Many of the high performance imports use that bolt pattern most aftermarket companies make wheels in that pattern in any size/offset you could want

a lot of chrysler, plymouth, dodge used this bolt pattern. Depends if the car was a high end car or not, otherwise they would use 5x4". I have some 5x4.5" rims for sale if you have any interst, they were on my 71 plymouth. they are 14's, 14x9 i belive in the rear and 14x7 in front. Couldn't find a tire dealer in the area who could fit that rear tire, so I got new 15" rims. let me know.

I know for a fact that if you can find a 1973 Chevy Nova, you will indeed find 5 on 4 1/2 bolt patern rims unless of course they were changed and by changed im talkin hubs and axels as well. Dave
