I am wondering if anyone knows whether or not 94 850 spoke rims will fit a 1973 164. The bolt pattern is the same, 5 X 108, they are 6.5 instead of 5.5, which should be ok but not sure about the offset or the bore. can some please help with this?

The bolt pattern should be correct on five-bolt FWD wheels; however, you will need some rather large (20 to 25 mm I believe) spacers to bring them far enough out, as RWD offset is about 25 and early FWD is 43. There are many RWD owners who run the larger FWD wheels (e.g. Titans, Volans, Pegs) with no other issues than correcting offset.

Hope this helps
