+13 Offset should work. 5 x 4.75 or 5 x 120.65 is the bolt pattern.

If that's your car in your sig, it looks a lot like my 85 Cutlass.

plus 13"? that's wider than any rim he's fitting. His factory 14" x 6" are likely a 3.5" offset - so an extra 9.5" that's a serious skateboard look you got going on there. :puke:

The offset doesn't stand for inches. Most 20"+ wheels are 10" wide. I've got several sets so I know what offset he needs so that his wheels DON'T poke out and so that his center cap will fit on the front wheels. Have you ever owned any wheels over 20"?

You'll get more help with your wheels on www.kingofthestreetgarage.com/forums than you will here. There's a lot of old farts on here who hate on big wheels.

Can't say I ever would. But domestic cars you tend to order the wheels in imperial or S.A.E standard sizes. I wouldn't throw the metric system into the mix here.

Well that's the way that big wheels come. If you didn't know, then now you do.
