wheel hubs ?

Why can't you buy new wheel hubs, press the studs out, and redrill for a 4.250 bolt pattern?

Yeah I don't get it either.

OP, are you talking about fronts or backs? If you are talking about fronts, you can buy new t-bird hubs with the 4.25" bolt pattern or you can buy SN95 mustang front hubs and they are a direct swap.

hubs

Great, I already have 95 hubs for my fox body 4 banger. The Cobra hubs I would need would be the same year range?

Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't ANY 1994-2004 Mustang an SN-95? I know the Mustang had some pretty substantial changes for 1999, but it was still basically the same car.

Arrow

on another note.. lol i kinda have have the same dilemma....

I have a 95 SC --- bolt pattern 5x4.25 offset +39 .
I just bought my FAVORITE 99 5 spoke cobra wheels. Part #F9ZZ-100-7EA
bolt pattern 5x4.50 offset +26 I think

we can do the hub swap...... fine.. i guess. but don't we also have to get new rotors, brakes, calipers to accommodate the different bolt pattern?? i dont have the time or money set aside for those items... you being a machinist, can I just press out the studs like you said and re-drill the holes or re-drill the wheel holes instead

OR can this work temporarily?......

Adapters are dangerous junk. Redrilling the wheels is just as bad.

You can reuse your calipers and use cheap mustang rotors on the front. The rear you can either redrill the stock rotor using the stock caliper or use mustang calipers and rotors.

last stupid question i forgot to ask before...

why cant i re-drill the front rotors along with the rear?
is it hard to that?
if i have an offset of +26 or so on my new wheels, how much do you guesstimate they will be sticking out?

thanks guys much appreciated

Rears

Hello

Well the parts up front are cheaper as Mustang parts than T-bird parts.
Bolt right on, 93up.

Rears
You can get your hubs redrilled, there is a Cobra guy that does it fairly inexpensive.
Or you can purchase Mustang Cobra rear hubs.
You will have to redrill the rear rotors or drums either way.
Mustang rear rotors have a different offset.

I am 1/2 way threw the swap. Working on the rear bushings right now.

You can redrill both, but the mustang hub center is a larger diameter. It will require more precice machine work on all 4 rotors vs. just the rears.

Besides, mustang front rotors are cheaper than dirt

They'll be sticking out alot with craptacular adapters. My wheels are +26mm 17x9s and they sit out slightly as is.

I think I'm just gonna shell out the money for the cobra rotors... I really don't wanna buy new calipers. Do I have too? Are the regular mustand or gt rotors more compatible to our stock sc. I think redrilling now is gonna throw the tension rating off on the hubs and rotors now that you mention it... No?
