... thats because those are 96/97 Sport center caps - the 94/95 SC wheels came with the flat caps with the Bird on them. My buddy picked up a set for his Tbird, and im pretty sure we slapped some fanblade caps on with no modifications necessary.
In my opinion, it doesnt matter which set you get - as long as they are Chrome.
Yeah, I found that fan centers work on the 2nd gen SC wheels, but first I need to cut a notch to slip a pry tool in there to get them off .... and then put some shorter open end lug nuts on them.
I've seen chromed 15" Fans, I don't recall seeing chromed 16" SC wheels?

I must have lead a sheltered life. Until I read this thread, I didn't realize the 1st gen SC wheels weren't directional? I just never took note, but since reading this .... I've looked.

Depends on the car. I love the Lacy Spoke 16x7 on my Mercury GM, but yeah
.... the 7 spoke Mercury XR-7 wheel looks really good on a T-Bird IMHO.
I have a set on my '92 T-Bird Sport that I stripped and polished and made aluminum centers for and painted the recessed portions black.
I love them, but it was a lot of work
. Someday, maybe I'll do another set maybe for the '95?
