I have a little trailer and it had falcon 14 inch rims on it. They are just a little bit too big for the trailer and they sometimes scrub on the mudguards.

So.... I was hoping that there is a car out there with the same PCD that are 13 inch and I can just go to the wreckers and buy some rims n tyres and bolt on.

Ideas??

Many Toyotas use the same 5x4-1/2" PCD as the Falcon.

Go to a trailer place, they sell Sunraysia style wheels in Ford or even multi-pattern. Or go directly to Mullins or King wheels or a tyre shop. You can buy 13x4.5 or 14x5 in black, white or gal in Ford pattern. I think they are less than $70 a rim.

early chrysler/dodge / desoto had ford patterns but they were 16" Valiant r/s/vh etc might have 13" wheels not sure, probably do as most makers followed.
For what its worth, i had the same problem with my little garden rubbish trailer it had morris minor wheels, i found the standard hubs off my fc to ht bolted straight on, the axles are all the same for trailers to make it simpler to replace/source parts. you will find most trailers take either ford or ht stud patterns.

Ford Zephyr ran 13 inch wheels in 5 on 114.3 as did XK XL XM XP Falcon utes and vans.

You would be better off simply fitting smaller tyres to your existing wheels to bring the rolling diameter down a bit
