Wheels for "78" Ambassador

We are looking to replace the wheels on our "78" Ambassador. As far as I can see they are 15" with 6 bolts. I know I need to be aware of offset and center bore. Will the aluminum wheels at this site fit? 15" SIX BOLT ALUMINUM TRAILER WHEELS FOR TOWABLE RV'S, FIFTH WHEEL TRAVEL TRAILERS, BOAT TRAILERS, CARGO TRAILERS, HORSE TRAILERS AND MORE
I believe I read a post that our AS uses wheels with 4.28 center bore and these are 4.24. Will that cause a problem. Anyone buy wheels from these folks? Recommendations are welcome. Thanks!!

I have original aluminum wheels on my '76 , which would have been the same opttion on your '78 . I do know that they are not hub centric ( fit tight to the hub ) becaucse the hub cover fits on through the wheel , then the wheel goes on . Sorry don't know the hub dia.. If you have steel wheels take one off and measure the dia. and check if it is tight to the hub . You shouldn't need more than that because the wheels your are looking at the hub cover screws to the wheel from the outside and should fit . The only other thing to check is the depth of the hub cover. Good luck

I purchased the series #03 15x6 from them and put on our 78 Ambassador with absolutely no issues. Nice lady on the phone. I also had them mount and balance new tires, valve stems, center caps and lug nuts. Packaged and shipped very well. I wasn't happy with the valve stem quality and had a local Goodyear shop replace them, but other than that, was very happy with them. Haven't learned to post pictures otherwise I'd attach.
