What cars will my '89LX wheels fit?

Hi Guys: I finally retired my Probe with 332,000 miles on it. I have four steel wheels with good snow treads on them and would like to advertise them for sale in the local papers.

What I need to know is what kinds of cars they will fit on. Does anyone have any suggestions as to how to find out?

Thanks for the responses.

What I need to know is how to find out what other cars they would fit on. There aren't many Probes in my rural area, so I would like to be able to advertise that, for example they would fit on a Corolla for certain years.

You would have to check the center bores on most since that is a smaller center bore. But typically for large bore 2nd gen -they swap with Mitsubishi, other Mazdas, some Lexus (must use a hug-centric ring).

Your best bet is to use a tool like this to find matching bolt patterns and hub centers:

You will have to hit quote to see the correct address and keep the spam engines from killing you with their spam re-directs to other unwanted websites. After you see the correct address -then just copy and paste into a new web browser window.
