Machine the splined portion off. Drill hub to 5X4.75 lug pattern. Or if the bolt pattern bolting the wire wheel hubs is that already use a 1" spacer like picture below. S-10 rear has same pattern. Rear on 83-92 S-10 2WD is only 54" wide. Might not even have to be narrowed.

thanks for the heads up, i found the spacers at multiple locations, i just need to take some measurements on the car. then i can put it together. fo rthe meantime i'll use the wire wheels i have. they're just a lil rusty and too expensive to replace (for right now anyway). i'm planning to put some mustang svt wheels on it.... or something similar.
