alrighty thanks for the info anothe rquestion. Will a wheel with a 5x4.5" pattern fit our cars? On ebay there are these wheels that say they will fit grand prix and mustangs and mitsubishi eclipses, but its NOT a multi pattern wheel. Isnt 4.5" the same as 114.3mm? I went to two different wheel shops and one place said 4.5" WOULD fit and another said that it WOULDN'T.....

5x114.3 do NOT fit. THey may go on, but you will be putting a lot of extra stress on your lugs. If you're going to run them, a set of Hubcentric rings are needed so everything is flat.

5x4.5" is generally for RWD applications, and the offset will not work.
