I've never seen that type of wheel in 5 on 108 pattern, you would likely have to do the conversion to 5 on 4.5". Those wheels I believe only come in the "traditional" older car patterns of 5 on 4.5" and 5 on 4.75". Other issue is that the wheel offset probably wouldn't work so well on an MN12, which typically need a higher offset "FWD" style wheel.

Thanks for the reply Fast Ed. We are trying for a really "sleek" look on our Bird and we both think the spoke type wheels to not help create what we are looking for. Ideally it would have been the chrome reverse with a "baldy" cap. Moon Disc's are not quite it either. We are looking for something simple, smoothe. Thanks for expanding my thinking to include the size issues. Any ideas on other possibilities? kf4sign (Warren)

What about getting plain steel wheels from an earlier base model V6 MN12, and then seeing if you can fit the baby moon caps to them? I can't really think of anything else that might work and give the look that you're after.

What about the spun aluminum caps like salt flats cars run?

In his second post he mentions that he doesn't want to use Moon discs, that is the common name for what you are referring to.
