5X 4.75" bolt spacing many aftermarkets made. Nova's/ Camero's use that bolt spacing. very common size, if you found a set of wheels from a '49-'54 Chevy, they would be direct replacement for yours.

I think Midsize Chevy cars into the 80's had 5X4/3/4. if you call a junk yard and tell them you need 14" or 15" wheels in 5X 4 3/4" bolt spacing, I gaurentee they will have a set. it's a very common bolt spacing.

Pre-'71 Chevy full-size cars, and all 5-lug GM mid-size and smaller rear-drive cars use that pattern.
