the bolt pattern is 5x4.75 and i beleive that 1 1/4" spacers in the rear will even out the stance.

im not exactly sure how to measure bolt patterns, im sure if you googled it youll find a way. have you thought about finding new rims with a different backspacing instead of using spacers? i think new rims with a different BS would be a much safer option IMO.

if you go with 2" spacers on the rear and 1.5" up front you should be fine, if anything you might need longer studs in the rear but thats a cheap and easy project.

search ebay for wheel spacers, youll get plenty of results and should find some for pretty cheap.
