    Are all 58 Edsels the same bolt pattern? Or are the Ford based ones a different pattern then the Mercury based ones?

    Pretty sure '58 Pacer, Ranger, and all station wagons are 5 on 4.5" and Citation and Corsair are 5 on 5, but I could be wrong.

    ,, I´ve had a few 58 Edsles,, both the smaller (several Pacers),,and one big (Corsair),,and both models have had the 14" big boltpattern(5 on 5") ,,The 59 Edsel on the other hand have the smaller Ford one (5 on 4,5") ,, BUT someone could naturally have switched drums + driveshafts on an 58 Pacer/Ranger to ford 57/58 drums/shafts,, I suppose? messure what you really have before finding rims (that doesn´t fit),, best of luck ! ;)

    Al Bergler has a perfect set of Edsel wheels.....He's at the NHRA Nationals and his cell phone number is 586-907-0889. Edsel bolt pattern is not the same as Ford. '58 Edsels are 5X5".......Mike

    Early 60's Lincolns are also 5x5 ,they might be easier to find
