Welcome to LS1Tech and the F-body world. Bolt pattern is 5x4.75 (5x120.65). There are some who will force 5x120 pattern wheels on, and they will fit but it's a tight fit. I'd recommend sticking with the correct pattern, as there are plenty of wheels available since this has been the standard GM pattern for over 50 years.
There is a downside to the wheels being flush with the top of the wheel well. At the bottom, the wheels will stick out about 3 inches, which means dirt, rubber, and grime flung all over the side of your car. It can be done though.
