For 1971's I read that the bolt pattern is 5x120.7mm.

My question is, has anyone installed other car make/model rims, BMW for example? Their bolt pattern is primarily 5x120...

Thanks in advance

a 4.75 inch bolt circle converts to a 120.65 mm bolt circle.
What ??? you can't google an inch to mm conversion page ???

It's blasphemy to most on here if you aren't asking about torque thrust, cragar, or 14" rally wheel back spacing.

Yes you can run whatever wheel you want. If the wheel has a large offset you can purchase spacers with different bolt pattern to match what you want. I would NOT run 120mm on 120.7mm, some people get lucky with it, some people have their lug studs snap off due to the side load of the small difference. It's not worth the risk in my view.
