Those are cool....anybody running his GT500 wheels on an MN12? I like them...seems like a 9.5 wheel in the front might be too wide though? Then again a 9" fits...

17 inch 93 cobra fanblade replicas in our bolt pattern would really be sweet...hint hint... I'd buy a set

Isnt there a member that has a set of 17" fan blades on his bird? I believe it was a 94-95.

mercury267 has the 17" fanblades on his car. I always liked those since they're just like the stock fan blades ... only better!

Anyway, check out his cardomain page for more info about his car, his build and pictures of his car.

The fanblade repicas are wider than original ones. He is running originals redrilled for our bolt pattern. If I recall originals are 7.5 inch and replicas are 8.5 inch. On a phone so its a pain to look up
