Just looking around eBay, and I see a couple sets of Lincoln LS wheels, cheap, so far.

Do these happen to have the same bolt pattern as our MN12's?

Just thinking out loud.

i believe the LS bolt pattern is 5x4.25, the same as MN12's.

the only reason im saying that is because i saw an SC with LS wheels a couple months ago over at SCCoA

yes, the bolt pattern is the same. not too sure about backspacing, or center bore.....
you will need the LS lugnuts, though. they use a shank type lugnut. the size and thread of the stud is the same.

I saw that too. He goes by "BlackAnSC" he reported that they fit fine, and had no problems with rubbing.

The new Thunderbird wheels should have the same bolt pattern because it shares the same chassis as the Lincoln LS.

I'm just throwing out this idea to y'all.

Which ones, the LS or the Bird rims? Vic and I asked Nancy G (lead T-Bird engineer) at the launch and she said the new T-Bird bolt pattern was 4.5x5, and the backspacing was rediculously huge...
