Hawks, Ebay, Amazon. Quite a few out there in the $100 range for all four. You want 5 x 4.75 (5x120.65mm)

Re: Wheel spacers, where to buy?

Look for people that sell them for BMW with the 120mm bolt pattern. The pattern on our cars is actually 4.76" diameter, commonly referred to as 4" as Shifty posted; 120mm is 4.72". The holes and studs are less than .020" off from ours, about the thickness of a business card, and usually will interchange. Keep in mind also, you don't want "spacers", which would be a block of metal with 5 holes in them; you should get something called "adapters", even though you're not "adapting" between 2 different sizes; those will have 5 holes for the existing wheel studs on the car's axles & hubs, and 5 studs for the wheels to bolt to.

As far as thickness, if you're putting on wheels from, or that are supposed to fit, Corvette or 4th gen Camaro/Firebird, they will need to be about 2" (50mm) thick.
