you can also turn the hubs to fit all chevy wheels when you are changing wheelbearings, (which i would do when installing some ones used rear end)

50 questions:

Thanx guys, so which year vette wheels fit the Jag bolt pattern? What size are they, 16"? are front & rear wheels the same width on the vette if I bought a set? Are ofsets the same front & rear?
Also I'ld like some more info on the machining, which is safer to machine down & how much, the wheels or the hub? Is the link below the hub a clearance problem too? I wish I knew the distance from the mounting face of the wheel to the outside of the tire to get an overall length of the entire assembly to see if the whole works will fit in the car. I suppose the drive shafts are parralel with the road when the weight of the vehicle is on the rear suspension, ideally, correct?
I also have a left-over 72 elcamino front suspension with PS PDB which I might be able to use if these wheel offsets are great enough. Please reply if you can help, thanx.

Look on EBAY under Camaro Wheels or Corvette wheels. They will have hundreds of choices and all the back spacing. There are plenty of aftermarket choices also. The chevy bolt pattern is 4.75, Same as the Jag.

Look under a real Jag. The lower arms outer pivot should sit about 2" lower than the inner pivot with weight on the car. I looked under 2-3 Jags to fivure that out! Width from flange to flange (wheel mounting surfaces) is 65-66". I had the same problem -- didn't want to narrow for my Rambler, and the tread is close to the same as the Rambler (63"). I ordered a set of Weld Draglites becasue I could get 7" wheels with a 5.5" offset. They fit under the wheelwells just fine. It's hard to find wheels other than full custom ($$$$) with a deep offset! The Draglites come in 1" increments from 3.5" (dead centerof wheel) to 5.5". Those are the most offset from any regularly stocked wheel, and the most you can get on a 7" wheel. Even Colorado Custom couldn't go more, and one manufacturer couldn't go more than 4.5".
