go to the american racing website they should have all their rims listed with available bolt patterns and finding rims in 5x4.25 is pretty difficult slim pickings...

Also, check out the wheel shop dealer in the dealer's section. IIRC, its called thecustomwheelshop.com or something similar and the guy makes a bunch of wheels to fit the 5x4.25 bolt pattern. The new GT500 wheels would look pretty slick on a 'Bird.

AR does not build the TQ Thrust in our bolt pattern. Its a cast center with the bolt pattern aquired in the mold as apposed to a blank. So it would require another set of tooling and they are not interested in 5-4.25

They do build a few 5-4.25 but they are all FWD high offset wheels with no more than 7.5" of width.

Designed, programmed, machined, and polished by some hard-working under-appreciated employee.

Sorry Boyd, god rest.

That being said, buy some nice wheels from thecustomwheelshop.com.

That website is by far the greatest website for getting rims for our cars. And yes the GT500 wheels look awesome!

Will a 5x4.5 bolt pattern work on my 97 bird?

It will, but think about where that puts you afterward: now you have the rims you want, that cost some 800 bucks including tires (underestimation, I know) on your favorite car and no insurance that they'll indeed remain on your vehicle. If you REALLY want the AR wheels, do a hub swap. At least then you can guarantee that your nice shiny new wheels will stay bolted to your car and not running away from you at 80mph on the freeway while you go hurtling into a ditch.

just sayin'

maverick

I ordered in a chrome maverick and I didn't think it quite fit the bill. About the same price as the Cobra R wheel but not the same look. I am still shopping.
