95-96 FWB wheel questions

I'm thinking of using a set of stock Fleetwood wheels on another project I have (79 Seville). Does anyone know what the width and offset the wheels are on the Fleetwood?

Bonus points if there's someone in the Houston area that has one I can borrow to test fitment. Thanks.

I believe the Seville has the smaller 5x4.75" bolt pattern.

Old cars, just like classic rock... 60s, 70s, 80s, and 90s!

NO. It's 5X5. You should see how this thing looks with 15X10 Centerlines and DRs on all 4 corners. I use the wheels for our SS. :-)

I asked for offset, but really want to know the backspace. Thanks.

The offset is -6 (I believe they measure it in mm). The offset is the important information. The backspace is relative to the width of the wheel.

1991 OCC 461 (.030 over 454) BBC, 3.23 posi, flash to pass, drop spindles & springs, Impala rims, Hydroboost, Recaros, MOMO/wood SW w/QR, custom wood shift knob, Pioneer DEH P77DH
1992 OCC now with 5.7 tbi, DEH P77DH

Thanks for all the information. Time to locate a wheel and try some fitting.
