If I'm reading the bolt pattern right - then no, those wheels won't work. The T-Bird is 5x4.25/5x108mm and those appear to be 4x100.

Contact Brad/cudaz101 at The Custom Wheel Shop - he may have what your looking for in the right bolt pattern and wheel offset.

This is going to be your best option. We have an odd bolt pattern and backspacing and Brad has these wheels made specifically for our cars........unless you want do a Mustang hub swap and then the world is your oyster so to speak, hope that helps

There are many different wheels that are in our bolt pattern, you just have to look around. Look at MSR wheels, they have some in our bolt pattern that you might like. http://www.msrwheels.com/

Not only are they not worth it, they aren't structurally sound on our cars, and would make most mustang wheels stick out WAY to far. Don't do it.
