Hope this helps...

Late models use 5 lugs on a 4 3/4" (120.7mm) circle, other cars include:

Buick: Regal, Century, Special (most mid-size) '64-'80's
Chevrolet: most RWD, through 1/2 ton vans and trucks (includes S-10 and 4WD models) 1949-2005
Corvette all
Jaguar XJ, XK '69 - up
Oldsmobile: 442, Cutlass, F-85, Toronado (most mid-size) '60's-'80's
Pontiac: GTO, LeMans, Firebird, Grand Prix (mid size) '64-'80's
Note: Although the wheels used on some BMW's are almost the same size, they are actually a 5 lug on 120mm bolt circle, which is 4.72 inches

Recommend you read through the following technical reference article. It is loaded with useful information. The above information came from this article website...
