T-Bird w/ SHO Slicers?

i was poking around at the yard yesterday and found 4 different 93-95 SHO's. I'm pretty sure i can pull a set of 5 really decent wheels (one spare) w/ caps. I want to see what they would look like on a bird first though. And what do you guys think? Will they fit (other than bolting up)? Will the offset be ok? Are tires hard to find/really expensive?

i found one pic, but i'd like to see more if you guys have them.




and FWIW, they all had 140mph speedo's. Where do i find the 150mph's everyone talks about? any interest in the 140's?

The later SHO's got the 150's, but they're only an upgrade for the 97 birds. You need to find 94-95 SC gauges if you want a higher reading speedo.

i know i can't use them. but i could grab them and sell them if there was an interest. they look the same as the 97's but with 140 rather than 120.


anyways..... wheels.....

They'll fit OK, but are only 6" wide. So that will limit your tire choice somewhat.
