I believe Saturn uses 4 x 100 mm, but the offset is front-wheel drive. Ford uses a larger pattern, the exception being the later Ford Escorts made by Mazda (also 4 x 100).

Nope. I did a quick Google search (I am continually AMAZED at the power of Google!) and found a Yahoo Pinto site with the answer:

http://autos.groups.yahoo.com/group/pintocarclubofamerica/message/2071

and the answer is:

"Pintos have a 4X4.25" bolt pattern"

which is about 108 mm. And the next question is: what the heck is a Pinto Pangara, and why???

The "Pangra" was a 70's 'styling kit' fiberglass package to make your Pinto look 'cool', or exotic, or something (I actually like the first couple years of Pintos; small back window, thin bumpers, sub-2000 lb. weight, and a 100hp stock (with the right motor).

Grey wheels would look best on a yellow car. What shade of yellow? Primrose, school bus, banana? Dark grey works with the school bus yellows.
