    Car is put away and I’m too lazy to go out in the cold and measure. Does the 85 LeSabre have 5x5 or 5x4.75?
    Thanks.

    It could? be either. Most B body BOP 77-85 cars have seen in the yards have been 5 x 5. But not all of them.

    85 is a changeover year. To be sure measure your wheels as described in the article I posted.

    In that era, cars with certain other equipment got 5 x 5, while the masses got 5 x 4.75. In the 77-79 timeframe, the optional bigger engine and/or THM 400 cars, and possibly cars with posi got 5 x 5, eg Electra w/403, LeSabre Sport Coupe, Estate Wagon. Getting into the 307 Olds/THM200R4 era, don't know exactly what triggered the 5 x 5, but certainly Estate Wagons always got them, right up through 1996. Maybe if you ordered a posi? Trailering package?
