    Disc brake lug pattern?

     



    Anybody have preferences on lug patterns? I am trying to get a rear end that already has drums on it and I am upgrading the front to disc brake from Posies

    Is this for your Ford? I would get a lug pattern that is very common in ford. That way you can get rims at a fair price. You go with something out of the ordinary and you will be paying for custom rims.

    "Traditional" Ford is 5x4.5", while "Traditional" Chevy is 5x4.75". Both had many variations, but IMO if you stick with one of those you will be OK. If it is on a Ford I would go 5 lug, 4.5" spacing.

    If it is a ford and the rear is 8" or small bearing 9" then it's easy to change that to disc also. 4 1/2 is common for Ford and Dodge.
