A 235/60-16 will fit perfectly well.


Here are the 16x7 wheels after I stripped and polished them ... with aluminum disc centers cut from 1/8" aluminum with a bandsaw and using the stock stainless retainer spring riveted on with stainless steel 3/16" pop rivets in a circle.

I'm planing to use the 16" Thunderbird SC wheels with 225/60 tires on my '93 Cougar XR7.
Do they fit without body modifications ?
Can I use the same fixing bolts ?

Yes they work fine with that tire. You can use the same lug nuts.

Fan blade rims

'CrystalPistol'

Looks good! Wish I could come across a set of those for my Cougar.
Do you or anybody know if the T-Bird fan blade wheels look good on a Cougar.
I was wondering because I would like to buy these from the PULL A PART up here but have not seen them on a cougar before.
If anybody has a link or pictures please let me know.

Thanks!:cool:

I have the 89/90 SC wheels on my 96 Tbird with 255/50ZR/16 BF-Goodrich G-Sports and no rubbing issues at all. The car really handles and have a TON of traction. BTW they are 11 inches wide.

I will try and post a pic in the next couple of days.

I have these on my '96 Cougar with no issues and looks awesome... they were designed for these cars, so why would there be issues?


saw your cougar on foxtbirdcougarforums. like the scoop too--irv
