97 XR7 Bolt Pattern question

So in the search for wheels, I have come across several sources that say that the 97 XR7 had both the 108 mm and (114.3 mm, which is the same as the Mustang right?) I was under the assumption that regardless of a sport package all of the MN12s had the 108 mm bolt pattern.

Did any of them come with the 114.3 mm pattern from the factory?

Places I found the info:




1997 Cougar XR7 30th Anniversary Edition
Stock 4.6, Tokico Blues, lowered 1.25", 2.5" high flow catback exhaust
2013 Escape (daily driver)

I would never trust a wheel website with regards to wheels for MN12s with exception to Brad's site. I was doing a lot of searching for 5x4.25" Cobra Rs about 6 months ago, and even though I came across at least half a dozen websites advertising them for sale in the MN12 bolt pattern, it turned out that none of them actually had any.
