Chrome Factory Wheels

I have a set of the factory chrome wheels and tires in 15 inch that I need to sell.I am wondering how many years back they will fit ?They were a factory option for 1997.I sold my car and really don't need. One thing I do know they won't fit the front on the Sport option cars.

too bad ford didn't make any other rim for the thunderbird or cougar in chrome from the factory..if only the fan blades were larger...who wants to spend that much on 15" wheels..not worth it in my opinion.

They made chrome sport rims.

I love my V8, but I'd love it more if all 8 cylinders worked. (they do now)

Re-familiarize yourself with the forum's rules. Don't be surprised when a mod locks/deletes this thread...

Put them on Craigslist or ebay if you want to sell them. In TM's words, "This site is a community, not just a place to hock wares. If you just want to sell parts take your business to eBay, Craigslist or elsewhere on the Internet."

The chrome SC ones look nice. Only the wheels are on backwards so its throwing me off lol. I never did care for any of the fan blades, chrome or not they just look plain and kinda awkward.

Anyway, the clairification I wrote clearly states the reasoning behind the requirement.

If you'd like to buy a membership the requirement is waived for paid members.

Although yours almost look like they were 93-95 style(could just be the reflection). If so I wonder if the chromer only dipped LH sets

They made the 96/97(sport) 94/95(SC) 16" rims chrome but the are rare.

They made the standard 96/96 "salad shooter" 15" rim in chrome but they are also rare.

Finally they made the 94/95 "turbine" standard 15" wheel chrome for late 97, while they are rare they are the most common chrome factory tbird wheel out here.

Gotcha, I see it now. The way the reflections hit the front wheel make it look like the more accentuated spoke of the later SC/sport wheels.
