i think they'll sit pretty tough on the mark viii. granted they're only 15"s but who cares i'm not trying to "donk it out", just want a new look for my baby and cheap wheels are hard to come by for this bolt pattern.

How??? stock wheels on a tbird and cougar are 15" except for the sport wheels...don't see why it would matter on a mark to have 15's

^^^thats what i was thinking.^^^ i swear i've seen here someone running t-bird wheels on a mark viii before. can anybody give a definite answer to this i am meeting with the guy wed. i may get them no matter what as i don't need the h.u. anymore and can sell these faster and for more than the h.u. so either way good deal for me but i really wanna throw these on my mark viii.

Mark VIII's use larger front brakes than non sport tbirds/cougars.
