questions about a certain rim fitting my camaro

I got offered a pair of cragar rims off a 1971 nova. I was wondering if anyone knew whether or not they would fit on my 95 camaro? They guy had them on his 97 s10 so I figured they would.

Highly unlikely they're the correct bolt pattern.

questions about a certain rim fitting my camaro

No, not the same bolt pattern. Nova's are 5x 4.5".... Fbodys are 4.75"
Edit: upon further research, I've found they could be either. So you will need to measure the wheels. But..... I believe Factory Nova wheels were 15". Which could be a problem with fitment

I measured and even tested one out. They fit perfectly. So these ones must be the kind that fit.

What is the offset?
Do they clear the calipers when bolted down?
Do they stick out from the body of the car when on it?

I would doubt that they fit the way they should, but stranger things have happened.

Did you try fitting them on the front? The front is where 15" wheels don't fit.
