Need a pair of fairly narrow 15" wheels with 5 x 4 3/4 bolt pattern for the camper.

Ryan, Don't know if you through of this but space saver spares are about the narrowest wheels you can find now days. The problem is the offset may not work for you.

I did think of that and I was concerned about the offset. Also, many of them are fugly. I did a bit of research and found early 60s Tempest/Lemans are 15x 4.5 which would be perfect.

I am surprised those aren't 5on5 rather than 4 3/4 on 5 bolt circle...

I think the bigger Pontiacs are 5 on 5, the smaller ones used the smaller bolt pattern, I guess..
