Tires and rims

Hey all. I recently acquired a 67 Base Catalina and, I was hoping someone could tell me what the stock tire and rim size was and what the bolt pattern is. Seems everything I have found is related to GTO or Firebird. I love both those car but, damn man, not everyone OWNS a GTO Or Firebird. LOL

the bolt pattern for most Pontiacs from the sixties and seventies is 5x4.75
the tires were 8.25x14 with a width of 6" which today would be a 215/75x14.

Now see, the thing I found said the bolt pattern was 5x5. The tires on this thing are 205/75/14. They seem awful small for such a big car. Also, not many choices when it comes to finding that size. Come up with trailer tires a lot. LOL Any idea where I can find some 15" rims to fit this?

I apologize, you are correct 5x5.
Here is a link for 15" 5x5

the link I gave you showed 87 different wheels, you will have to contact the seller for more details. You probably can go to 7" maybe 8" if you do some clearance checking.
