I want to buy some new wheels for my 1997 Thunderbird LX Sport. I currently have a set of wheels from a 1999 Taurus SHO on the car, and they are in poor condition (corroded badly from road salt). Plus, I am not real happy with they way they look on the car because their offset differs from what my original wheels were; the rear wheels don't look right because they don't stick out far enough into the wheel openings like the OE wheels did (the fronts, for some reason, appear just about the same as the stock wheels that were on there before). I am not real crazy about the style of the OE wheels that were on the car when I bought it, either - that's kind of the reason I changed the wheels. Anyway, I'm thinking about buying 1 of 2 different styles of wheels I like that are sold by the Tire Rack. One style has offset of 40mm and backspacing of 5.59"; the other wheel has offset of 42mm and backspacing of 5.90". Which wheel will stick out farther, or are they about the same? I'm not sure I really understand the relationship between offset & backspacing, and I want to get some wheels that will stick out farther, like the stock wheels that came with the Thunderbird Sports!
