mustang wheels

I'm pretty sure Mustang wheels won't fit the T-Bird. I had the same thought and looked into it. I'm pretty sure the bolt circle is different, 4-1/4 for T-Bird and 4-1/2 for the Mustang. Look at www.tirerack.com I think they have a Thunderbird SVT wheel that looks the same as the Mustang SVT wheel.

Stang wheels have different bolt patterns than the birds. Which means Mustang rims will not fit onto a bird without a bolt pattern swap.

The stangs have a 4.5 bolt pattern while the MN12 has a 4.25 ....you are correct RedBird.

Now as or the center caps fitting, it depends on the wheels.... there are ALOT of stang wheels out there....LOL

Yeah, MN12's and Foxes have different offsets/bolt patterns. I own one of each and tried to swap my Cobra rims to my Mark VIII when i found out the hard way.

But as for center caps. I can visualize a few rims that they might swap....but there are a LOT of stang rims and tbird rims to pick from.

Right off the top of my head, i believe the sunflower 15" T-bird rim and the 17" '93 Cobra share the same center cap. There may be others
