Used to be that was true, but not any more. Ford, Mopar and AMC used the same 5X4.5 pattern on rear drive cars of the past - but even then, one used a smaller center hole so they fit one direction, but not the other. With the advent of front drive and "metric" everything changed. Big GM cars use 5X115, some small ones use 5X100. Many Mopars use 5X100. The Ford Contour uses the same pattern as the old 4 cyl Mystang, the Tempo and the Topaz (4X4.5 IIRC) Chevy Corvair and Chevy 2 used a different 4 bolt pattern, shared by many datsun and Toyota vehicles of the 70s and 80s.
