    Think the 71 has old school bolt pattern? 5x4.75 or even 5x5"? The newer fwd stuff is 5x115mm or 4.52"

    The bolt pattern is different and so is backspacing.

    Ya, there weren't a whole lot of cool alloy wheels in 71.

    Should be able to but you would have to buy adapters cause the lug patterns are different and you will have to play around with the thickness of the adapter.

    Different lug patterns, different wheel offset, the '05 Deville wheels index on the center bore, not the bolt pattern. The Hollander master wheel interchange manual says NO.

    does The Hollander master wheel interchange manual say they would fit on a '92 fleetwood?
