    I just picked up a 1980 Corolla wagon, All in all she is in good shape. 176.000 miles on her with no real problems.

    I am thinking about putting some "15" inch rims on and was wondering if the lug pattern on the car was 4x100.

    I will be replacing the interior and was wondering if you guys knew of any legit places to order new carpet/door panels and dash caps.
    The exterior is in good shape. Some light rust on the drivers door and a couple dings.

    Thanks for any help.

    If there are an even number of lugs, measure the distance between the center of one lug and the center of the opposite lug. If there are an odd number of lugs, measure the distance between the center of one lug and the center of the wheel, then multiply by 2. That's the lug pattern.

    Thanks.

    I found out that the 1980 runs a 4x114.3 lug pattern.

    Damn, I forgot about this thread.

    The following pics are a little old.The car has been buffed and shines like crazy. I have to pull the windshield and have it regooped. Right now the car is at the muffler shop, I am having dual pipes ran. Also the little specs on the paint are water or buffing compound.

    Damn. :eek3: There's more 80's in that picture than in the rest of the industrialized world combined. With concentrations that high, it's a wonder you haven't inadvertently opened a wormhole to another dimension yet.
