Greetings. I have learned a ton from this forum and the things it's members offer. I am in need of help today, as I am trying to order wheels and tires for my '94 Thunderbird LX.
I purchased this car for my mother brand new back then, and I have been upgrading a few things. She has since passed away, and I plan to keep this car. The wheels I chose are the Weld Ventura S104 Series. Will these fit all four corners without any modifications? I also ordered the 1.6" Eibach lowering Springs

Will these wheels fit? From what I read, I believe they will.

Specs:
5 x 108mm|5 x 4 1/4 in.
Offset: +38.00mm
Backspacing (in.): 6.000 in.
Center Bore Diameter (in.): 2.857 in.

Nothings stands out that would cause them not to fit, but to know for sure we would need the wheel width and wheel diameter.

Example, my wheels are 17x8.5, 40mm offset.

Thank you, Sir!

I am looking at 17x8, 38mm Offset, 6" backspacing.

I'm also considering tires: 255/50/17, or 255/45/17

Your car looks awesome!!!

Thank you! You should post a photo of yours.

I have 255/50s as well due to how they fill up the wells. But the fronts are very close upper ball joint so Id look at the 255/45s for the front at least.

32mm offsets for 8" wheels will tuck the wheels in a little better but +38 should still fit OK. The outer edges of the wheels will be a little further out with that size.

I run 255/45 in front and 255/50 in rear.
