4" is 101.6 mm... or 100 mm is 3.937". That's not nearly close enough for me, especially in a wheel/hub system which is centred by the studs, not by a precise match of wheel centre bore to hub. I suppose it would be close enough for some.

In practice, it probably doesn't matter, since there will be few if any 4x100mm wheels available with near-zero offset for a typical trailer, and similarly few if any 4x4.00" wheels available with the high offset needed for most cars which should be using the 100 mm pattern.

Information is good. Lack of information is not so good, but misinformation is much worse. Check facts, and apply common sense liberally.

replacement wheels for 13' scamp

My 1999 scamp has the five lug wheels and I bought a set of custom wheels from my local Les Schwab tire dealer. They look much better than the factory white rim .Have a friend that has a scamp with four lug wheels and he found some 4 lug pinto wheels and painted them and installed hubcaps and trim rings.

If the Pinto used Ford's traditional small-car bolt pattern, that's 4.25" (known as 108 mm when used with more offset as on more recent front-wheel-drive cars such as my Focus). That's vastly different from 4.00", and I don't know how close to appropriate the Pinto offset might be.

I know Floyd will know the correct pattern and offset for a Pinto...
