    I believe 4.5" this pic here has a 1" spacer on it do to the rearend being 5x5 bolt pattern

    so they stick out a tad more. I'd measure them but it's raining right now.



    It's a good fit either way I bet you could fit 15x11 with 305s on these B Bodies

    5" back spacing, zero offset. They're made by Wheel Vintiques. I wanted to use Rally wheels, only wider.

    For a little more $$, Paulsons Wheels makes them with a dual lug pattern, 5x5 and 5x4.75.

    No spacers.  Myloth is using adapters to convert from 5x5 (axle) to 5x4.75 (wheel)

    The adapter makes the wheel poke out slightly right?

    I like the look with the spacer, it's just in from the wheel well flare by 1/2 click

    if you had 315s with no spacer it would look like that I suspect.

    Also given the width of these cars 295s don't even look all that big.

    I had 245s on an 05' Impala and they looked about the same as

    the 295s on the 79'.

    275 on an 8 inch wheel shouldn't be a problem at all.
