5x5 bolt pattern on our Vans. 7" wide rims. Not sure...I think its pretty close to 0 offset....someone else should chime in.
You should post a pic of your Van and the wheels you want and some of our photoshop masters could work their magic for you.
I like the look of wide rims on the back of these Vans.

What's nice about the Cragar Supersports (I had them on my Pinto) is that they have oval / slotted shaped holes so that they can fit multiple bolt spacings. They also make a FWD version of their wheels so maybe using this along with a spacer will give the proper offset.
