just cruious on rim swap

well getting my 95 mark 8 on the road sometime within the next month, and it needs tires. so i have my 93 tbird with the fanblads with fairly new tires. my question being, i know it will bolt on, but would they "fit" as far as offsets and the differance of 15" rim and 16" rim. didnt know if anything like the brakes on the lincoln would be bigger and not allow the 15" fanblades to fit. was going to use the fanblades for the time being till i grab some tires for the lincoln rims.

anyone have any pics?

thanks
Dean

Nope. The Mark 8's have larger front brake rotors which necessitate 16's.

unless you want to do some light grinding on the calipers in which case it will fit.
