Not without a hub swap. Mustang = 5x4.5", MN12 = 5x4.25".

hey its your car pick what you like. i prefer the 5 spoke gt/v8 rims over those but if you like em save em and do a hub swap it should be that expensive if you get stuff from a junk yard

you can only use the front hubs from the v6/gt sn95's and is a horrible idea to buy used hubs/bearings. the 99+ cobra hubs will cost a bit over $100 a piece.

Some Cobra guys are ditching there IRS for solid axles, you can get the hubs & also come up on the center section just make sure your getting the 28 spline! Or just save your money & get new parts!!!

wow less then 3 is a steal of a deal. the ones i want are 110 a piece. but i need new tires and well i think im going to do the hub swap. actualy i have one question first are the brakes and rotors better on the stangs vs sport 97 brakes and rotors?

They are $289 a piece... (not for all 4)

If that's what you meant by "less than 3..."

Mine too.

I wish these fit our cars (or the mustang hubs for that matter)

I've always loved these rims even though they are chevy...and think they'd look great on a Bird. (photoshop project anyone?....)

Thats my point, you can get the parts off those guys for cheap, my buddy cjchevez came up on a good deal for his tbird, cobra diff with 4:10s, hubs & you can sell off the axles cuz you wont be able to use those.

why that would ruin the handling of the car. thats actually one thing i love about the car its the one car that ford did really did a great job on. mustangs can keep the solid axle i'll keep my handling so then imports caant talk smack when i can keep up with them on the turns.
