Hello! Welcome to the forum. We hope you stick around.
I have a 66 Galaxie. The lug pattern is 5 lug X 4.5 inches. Which is the same as 5 X 114.3mm. You can verify this by measuring the distance between any 2 lugs if you skip one in between. In other words, measure the distance between the first and 3rd lug, always using the center of the lug.
I have 15 inch wheels with 235/60R 15 tires on the rear of my 66, but I suppose a bit wiser ones would fit too, but not much wider without risking fender rub. I think the front has 205/60R 15.
The backspacing is important too. I once bought a nice set of FORD wheels with good tires for cheap only to find out that the backspacing was wrong and they wouldn't fit the front of the car because the hit the upper control arm. So I had to turn around and sell them again.
What wheels are you thinking of using?
