I am looking at some 17x7 1/2 Cobra wheels and I was wondering how I measure the bolt pattern on the wheel to know if it fits my SC. The person selling them bought them for his mustang, but they dont fit. He is mesuring them from the middle of one hole to the middle of the other and says he comes up with 4.25 which does fit the SC (obviously not his stang). Is this the proper way to figure out the bolt pattern? he wants 600 for the wheels, slightly used tires and NO center caps. I was wanting the 9" wheels, but this sounds like a good deal. What does everyone think? Thanks

offset measurement?

I believe the measurement is center to center on the lug holes. According to the pic that looks more like it'll be around 4", not 4.25". Could be a metric pattern too.

It is not center to center...it is the outside of one lug hole to the center of the third lug hole.
