    I found an ad on craigslist for these turbine wheels and he said that he pulled these wheels off a camaro for sure and that the lug pattern was 5 by 4.50 Is this true? Both my camaro and firebird are 5 by 4.75. Is he measuring wrong?

    Early Fords and Mustangs had the 4.5 I think.

    Fords and Mopars use a 5X4 1/2" lug pattern. If he pulled them off a Camaro then they have a 5X4 3/4" lug pattern and he's just mistaken about the size.

    instead of measuring from center to center of the lug holes, I'll bet he measure from one side of one hole, to the wrong side of another hole.. if that makes sense...


    ie, the holes are probably 4.5 inches apart, but the center to center is 4.75...

    I think that the 67-69 Camaros had a 4 1/2 inch pattern.

    No, the 67-69 Camaro uses the same 4.75" pattern as our cars.

    The 4.5" is a Ford and Mopar thing.

    To measure correctly, you have to measure exactly across the center of the hub to know the distance from the hub. With 5 holes, you don't have any two holes exactly in line with the center of the hub. It is simple geometry. Measure right and you get the right measurement.

    Actually it's not center to center on a 5 lug bolt pattern.
