wheel fitment

Post by economan on Wed Jan 07, 2015 12:59 pm

I'm planning on ordering a set of fresh wheels, does anybody out there have any of the specs re:bolt pattern, offset, or diameter specs or recommendations. I expect wheel designs will be limited for a four bolt rear wheel drive offset wheel, so i'm thinking i may first have to get the specs then proceed to find a wheel i like from whats available from those specs.
may go to a larger wheel & lower profile tire.

For what it's worth, our MX runs FoMoCo (5) stud, 1/2" on a 4.5" bolt circle pattern. The steel wheels are of unknown origin, 7' x 15" dia. Front and 8" x 15" dia. on the Rear. The back-space / offset is what the "CR" Build manual referenced.
Tires are 215/65x15 in front and 275/60x15 at rear.
Oh, yes, don't forget to make certain that your brake caliper ass'ys. fit inside your rims without interference !

thanx jimbo!
like i say though, this is a 4 bolt pattern,
many wheel manufacturers only list by car make & model so I am assumng this is a GM "T" (acadian/chevette)body pattern/offset

Back space is 3 7/8". You probably have a Mustang2 8" rear. I checked and found a Maverick rear complete for $350 in Kansas City. You could change to five bolt and have a much better wheel selection. Low profile tires make for a more harsh ride and most owners are trying to go softer.
