    I believe 4.5" this pic here has a 1" spacer on it do to the rearend being 5x5 bolt pattern

    so they stick out a tad more. I'd measure them but it's raining right now.

    It's a good fit either way I bet you could fit 15x11 with 305s on these B Bodies

    5" back spacing, zero offset. They're made by Wheel Vintiques. I wanted to use Rally wheels, only wider.

    For a little more $$, Paulsons Wheels makes them with a dual lug pattern, 5x5 and 5x4.75.

    Did you have a spacer on in the first set of pics you sent?

    No spacers.  Myloth is using adapters to convert from 5x5 (axle) to 5x4.75 (wheel)

    The adapter makes the wheel poke out slightly right?

    I like the look with the spacer, it's just in from the wheel well flare by 1/2 click

    if you had 315s with no spacer it would look like that I suspect.

    Also given the width of these cars 295s don't even look all that big.

    I had 245s on an 05' Impala and they looked about the same as

    the 295s on the 79'.

    275 on an 8 inch wheel shouldn't be a problem at all.
