I'm guessing you are asking since you bought a car with 5 lug.
Probably means you have Lincoln rotors.

Yep. Car came with the 5 lug done already. They are Fox spindles it turns out. Here is an interesting note...... There is a "write-up" about using Fox spindles with rims that would not otherwise fit properly. It may sound like a bit of work, but it's no different "work-wise" than swapping over new spindles. You basically grind/round off the rotor hat about 1/8 ", flatten the grease cap slightly, and then remove about 1/8" from the end of the spindle. Once this is accomplished, you can run a 17x9 rim. Additionally, the wheel wont "stick out" like with 96+ spindles. Even the 94/95 spindles move the rim outward a small amount. Just a different direction/option for those inclined to give it a try.
