    Can someone please tell me the bolt pattern for my wheels? I don't have the tool to measure them; nor do I have a manual. My car is a '74 Duster. The wheels are 14". (I have no idea why the previous owner had the washers on there)

      Looks like 5x4.5. Just measure it. Easy to do.

              Thanks for the non help. I do know how rulers work, but I didn't know where to measure from. Someone else was kind enough to tell me something useful. But thanks for playing!

                Welcome to FABO!!

                People like to play...sorta like hanging out in the garage and razzing each other.

                That era was mostly 5 on 4.5". Certainly someone could have swapped in a different rear. Tolerances were a little loose back then and rears can be off by as much as three quarters of an inch. Like @doug 371 said, probably used washers as a spacer.

                5 studs on a 4.5 inch diameter circle only so many places you can put 5 studs evenly on a 4.5 inch circle pay attention to centre hole for axle those very a lot. Have fun and the razz like water off a ducks back LOL.
