        Is it GM that used the 4 3/4" bolt pattern?

          Before you grab the air impact, check to see if the lugs are all right hand, or if one side is left hand threads.

            LOL. Good advice the check. The left handed studs should have an "L" in the end of the stud....but ya never know!!!

                  A few guys years ago liked the Dodge Aspen wheel that was used on police cars because they bolted up and gave a wider wheel without clearance problems. They used to be around in wrecking yards, but most of the stuff has disappeared unless you find an older pick your part place. You could use stock wheel covers on those wheels.

                    15" x 6" wide wheels, 5 on 4 1/2" with 4" backspace came on:
                    Ford Ranger, 93-09
                    Ford Explorer, 93-94, 96-00
                    Mercury Mountaineer, 97-01
                    Mazda B2300, 2000
                    Some Rangers came with a 14" wheel. You want the ones with 8 oddball shaped ovals on the center.
                    Stock wheelcovers fit the wheels.

                          Mr. Prez,

                          Would you happen to know what (late) vehicles used 15 inch rims with 5 X 4 1/2 bolt pattern and 3 3/4" back space. I have a '59 Silver Hawk with modern disc brakes on it and need two steel rims 7 inches wide. I'll probably be selling the original rims and the spare rim.

                          thanks,
                          Treblig

                            Which modern disc brakes? Most of the mentioned wheels will fit, 3 3/4" vs. 4" back spacing probably won't be a problem, just choose one that came with disc brakes originally, most listed did. Going to 7" wide rims may be a problem, you might get the right off set, but wind up with tires rubbing your wheel well openings. Lots of prior posts on wheel sizes and fit--best bet is a 15 x 6 max.
