    Why would you wanna put wheels like that on a Maverick? They look like truck wheels.
    And why are you looking at metric stuff? These cars are not metric. The bolt pattern will fit, but as far as the rest of the stuff, it may or may not.

    they'll fit. 114,3mm is exactly 4.5", so it's the correct bolt pattern. 0mm offset means the flange is exactly centered, so 4" backspace.
    also, wheels are not hub centric but lug centric, so the bore shouldn't be an issue.

    Welcome to the forum, from NE Illinois....
    I don't see any reason why those wheels won't fit, many on here have much larger wheel/tire combo's. Also, I think the wheels will look good on these cars - plus, price is right... I say go for it!
    I have OE factory Mag 500 w/ chrome rings; going to remove the rings this season and paint them black. I can always put the rings back on...

    Type in 15 x 7 in the search box and you will get a lot of info. Quite certainly a 4" backspace would work. You could measure the bore of your existing rim to make sure the bore on their wheel is large enough. Just chat with their tech line person.

    Thank you for the feedback everyone, I appreciate it. I'll order them tonight and when they get here I guess I'll find out if they fit. :D
