Default Wheel options for 1966 Mustang 4-lug bolt pattern?

My wife has a '66 with the I6/automatic... pretty much stock.. just upgraded the front brakes to the SSBC discs, maintaining the 4-lug bolt pattern. Right now, the car has the stock 14" wheels with wheel covers.. it desperately needs new tires - so I figured this is a good time to upgrade her to some 15" wheels with new tires. I thought I had read somewhere that some of the wheels for imports with the 4 lug bolt pattern would work.. can anyone verify this? What other options are out there for the 4 lug in a 15" wheel? They don't need to be super-wide, as we want to just keep the car as a cruiser (and it has manual steering, so the narrower the tire, the easier it is for her to turn).

Thanks

so, it appears as if the 4x4.5" bolt pattern is the same as a 4x113.5mm bolt pattern (used on the old Datsun 240Z)... however, I'm finding when looking at those wheels, it measures the size as 15x8, but lists the "offset" as "0"... doesn't explain what the 'backspacing' is.. example here:

15 15x8 XXR 531 Black Wheels Rims Deep Dish Lip 4x4.5 Datsun 240z 280z 280zx Parts for Sale - DragTimes.com

Would these fit under a stock '66 Mustang I6?

Here's another one that would look good - kinda like mini-lites.

curious if the center bore is the right size too ...

Here's something that might help regarding Ford 14" 4-lug wheels. I have yet to find any of this information to be inaccurate relating to the wheels on our 65-66 Mustangs.

Hope you find it helpful.

Check out the Konig Rewinds. Currently priced at $105 each. I have them on my 66 Coupe. They will transform the look of the car. Click on my profile pic to see a larger pic.
