Well , in Yank measurement (which we refer to as inches) It is 4.5 and 5.5 inches . That is if that is the bolt pattern measurement and then it could fit several different Fords and Mopars .G'luck with yer Hotrod. swaZZie

I have Jaguar rims on my Camaro right now.It is the same bolt circle,4 3/4".
By the way the British invented the inch measurement.The Yanks followed.

Just to be sure, these wheels have two separate bolt patterns? Most 5-lug wheels have slots (generically called uni-lug) and will fit 4.5 inch, 4.75 inch, and 5 inch.

FYI, the 4.5 inch is typically used on Ford and Chrysler mid-size cars (Mustang, Cuda, Torino, etc.). The 4.75 is the GM mid-size bolt pattern (Camaro, Chevelle, Corvette, Nova, and derivatives) and as was pointed out is also the Jag bolt pattern. 5 inch is usually used on the full size cars (Impala, Oldsmobile 98, Cadillac) and some half-ton pickups and vans. 5.5 inches is pretty much trucks only. I find it strange that a set of wheels would have only 4.5 and 5.5 bolt circles.
