In general, all GM non-metric wheels from 72 to present go something like this:

All full size (B and D body) cars, 5-lug full size pickups, astros and the like have the 5x5" pattern. All intermediate RWD cars (A, G, X, bodies), S10s, and AWD astros have the 5x4.75" pattern.

The problem is that Chevy rallies came in both patterns. Do you know which vehicle they came from?

I had a set of 78 Impala wheels

They were factory rallies off a 78 Impala Wagon..wouldn't fit any other GM car's I had around. I pulled off the tires and sold the rims.

jimfulco Most Chevy wheels should fit fine. Chevy had the same 5-lug bolt pattern for compact thru full-sized cars through 1970, but from '71-'76, they went to the big GM pattern for the full-sized cars. After '76, the big GM cars could have had either pattern.

If the Skylark has disc brakes, some of the older (pre-'75) Chevy 14" wheels won't clear the calipers.

Rob Keller Back then a Skylark was considered a Small car the big ones like the 225 Electra and wagons typically had a bigger spaced lug pattern .
Same thing across the divisions Pontiac Oldsmobile & I do believe Chevy ad the "big wheels" too
