Pontiac chieftain: My Question Is I Have A 1951 Pontiac Chieftain

This answer was rated:

My Question Is I Have A 1951 Pontiac Chieftain And I was Wonderong Would The Wheels Of A 1949-1951 Chevy Fit On The Pontiac Since They Are Both Made By General Moters And if not what car wheels would fit? Thank You

I thank you for a great question, I know that the Pontiac has 5 hole x 5" pattern, as for the chevys they had from 1949 -1970 5 hole 4 3/4" pattern. It is possible that the Pontiac could have been changed if you measure from 1 stud to 1 stud skipping one in between and measure from center to center of the studs, this will give you your pattern size, if they are both stock they will not fit.

please let me know if you have any other questions.
