Default Stock wheel measurements

Does anyone have the correct measurement for the bolt pattern on a 58,s stock wheels ?? The shop manual doesnt list it and Im looking into buying a disc brake kit. The kit Im looking states a 4 1/2 measurement for the rotors. Thanks !

hi
I believe that the center to center distance of every OTHER bolt is 4 1/2 inches. Further the size of the center hole in the rim
is 2 1/2".

I believe that the 4 1/2 inch measurement is not center to center rather edge to center.

I believe Steve is correct. Center to center applies to 4, 6 and 8 lug wheels.
