2005 Mustang rims on my 1994 Bird.

I recently updated my Bird to 5 x 4.5 bolt pattern and need a set of rims to work out a few frontend issues, before I get my summer rims. Will these 15 inch rims be ok to use? I think the only issue may be the calipers, if anything at all. Thanks in advance, JPT.

Yep, they're 16's. I know there was a Black 96/97 T-bird that was running those rims but I have no idea where the post is.

Thanks guys. The seller's wife posted the ad & it was a typo. $80.00 seems like a good price, JPT.

Thanks for the input guys. I bought these rims. What size tires are you using XR7-4.6? Thanks again, JPT.

if they are 16s 225 60 16 is the stock size for birds and cougars. You should probably use that size tire.

I forget who on here, but someone told me they preferred to use 235/60/16s because they fill out the wells a little better.

I am going to do some homework on this before I decide what size tire to run during the winter, thanks for your input, JPT.
