Will they fit on a 97 Bird?

Guy in NH has 7 rims with 8 tires for sale for $375...

go to a rim website such as discount tire and enter in 01 lincoln ls and see what bolt pattern they are they must be 5 x 4.25 in order to be compliant with birds and cougars

Yep.. you're right. Will need a spacer. LS wheels have a 60mm offset and the Bird takes 35-40. Good thought I guess....

Back to Craigslist...

Thanks so much for your reply

Just so I am understanding correctly, you are saying that the 16 inch wheels/tires will fit with no problems?

Thanks again

I had 16" wheels from a Lincoln LS on my '96 - I had to run spacers. The inner lip of the rim will not clear the spindle without them.
Plus, they look "tucked in" even with the spacers, so the overall aesthetic impact isn't really all that good.
