The distance between the edge of one bolt hole on the wheel to the edge of the bolt hole right next to it will help determine the bolt pattern.
For a 5 bolt wheel:
If distance = 2-5/8" then the bolt pattern is a 5 on 4-1/2
If distance = 2-3/4" then the bolt pattern is a 5 on 4-3/4
If distance = 3" then the bolt pattern is a 5 on 5
If distance = 3-1/4" then the bolt pattern is a 5 on 5-1/2

There is absolutely NO need to look at this post or any others that may follow in the future, as these are only open to allow more pictures to be added to the first post. The bulletin board software only allows three pictures to be loaded into each post, and that is what these are here for.

Don't bother wasting your time clicking on these as they are already posted for viewing in the above thread.
