Here is a master list of wheels that have the same bolt pattern as the Geo/Chevy Metro. The wheel bolt pattern is 4 X 4.5 or also known as 4 X 114MM. Measure 2 lugholes across from each other and it should measure 4 1/2" US or 114MM.

The only thing i would edit is this:

1990-99 Accord

Only the 4cylinder Accord wheels will fit. The 6cylinder cars have 5lugs. Everything else looked good.

They got the years wrong on the plymouth arrow since I do own one. My 77 has the same bolt pattern and they should fit since the hole is bigger on the arrow.

Also for you can add for sure 1962 nova with 4 bolt pattern should fit too. I also own one of them.

If you want to upgrade to 13" wheels and do not want to upgrade from 10MM to 12MM studs, you can use these lugnuts from Summit.........

Thanks Johnny Mullet!
I'm ordering 13" Rims from http://shop.wheelsrims.net/
They seem to have the best price next to junk yard finds.
My next search was going to be lugs, and wham! There they are!
Thanks again from a new guy, starting out with a bone stock 92 metro. Let the fun begin!

I found many wheel tire combinations with a little research before I settled on popular easy to find 175 X 65 tires on 14 inch alloy wheels, the oem 13 inch wheels have a 4x4.5 bolt pattern. Im not sure of the bolt pattern of the oem 12 inch wheels

Hey Johnny Mullet, this is exactly what I was looking for! That link takes me to some default page, but it looks like the lugnuts you link to are the GOR-41117? If so, the link is http://www.summitracing.com/parts/GOR-41117/

I had a tire blowout on my '89 (funny story, that) and now I am trying to find some low rolling resistance tires, but 12" tires are too hard to get, so I am going to fiddle with tire/rim combos now

I picked up some pn41117 10mm x 1.25 lugs from Summit to put my 13's on the Metro. Finally got around to the swap tonight, along with some graphic enhancements, only to discover that they're a frog hair too big, so it seems. While attempting to bring them to torque, they began to strip. Any ideas? or are they only meant to take 40flbs or less torque. The old lug nuts, on the 12's, take 80ftlbs no problem. Now I'm bummed!

Saw these rims on eBay http://mo4.us/10 (shortened the link cause it was ridiculous ). They are very shiny!

I personally wouldn't buy them, even if they would work, mostly because of the cost, but would something like this work? Or is it a matter of DOT rating? I was looking at some rims from trailers, but those are usually DOT rated, so it would probably work, but golf cart tires? :hmm

The lug studs are only supposed to get 45 lbs/ft, 80 is insanity, I'm surprised they didn't break then.

Those golf cart tires are probably rated for 30 mph top speed, plus they're ridiculously short, your engine would be near redline at 60 mph.

Woodie, Your right! What was I thinking? I guess I was still in big wheel mode. Meaning 15" & 16" trailer rims that get 90-120ftlbs. I know this lil' guys only get 45ftlbs. Thanks for tolerating my brain fart. Fortunately I only trashed one set of lugs.

Yeah, I figured golf cart wheels wouldn't be rated fast enough, I didn't notice the actual tire size though, oops.

I just bought a set of 15" rims (racing rims, pictures when I get my camera in a couple days) and have to wait till the bigger lug nuts come in before I can mount them. Afraid I'm having "buyers remorse", because I think the low rolling resistance tires won't fit on her. It's 15" and 195 wide, so if I put a 195/50-15 on it, the speed will be the same, or a 55 would be ideal. I think I may sell them back on craigslist and look for different ones unless someone can make good recommendations.

Superior Slotted Mag wheels 60's era mag wheels in 13" x 5-1/2 wide, 4 lug "Uni-lug" pattern, 4/41/2 bolt pattern from a 4-bolt 60's Mustang?

This is a great thread!
