Hub adapters?

Obviously I've came across the mn12 owner's problem of wheel selection. So I was curious how effective this was.

I've never seen them before but I'd say at 1-1/4" thick they'd screw up your wheel offset.

Probably just best to pick out a set of rims from the Custom Wheel Shop or just go ahead and do the hubswap.

Well I do have a question about the hub swap. I'm under the impression that it is all a direct swap except the brakes and or rotors. So if I were to do it I would keep stock calipers. Which means that I would have the rotors redrilled. I was just curious as to how safe that was. At only 1/4 in difference, wouldn't the holes overlap?

Use Mustang GT rotors up front and Cobra rotors out back with Relocation brackets. No redrilling necessary.

Adapters suck.

I wasn't aware that they made relocation brakets. Where at?

XR7 Dave(dave dalke) makes them http://www.sccoa.com/forums/showthre...=dave+brackets

BTW I corrected my post. Just noticed I said Cobra calipers, I meant to say use Cobra rear rotors. The relocation brackets are designed to move your stock calipers outward to fit the larger 11.65" rotor

Hub swap



Just do the hub swaps.

as stated most wheels still won't fit with the adapters.
You might as well get custom wheels now.

irsmachining.com for the rears. even rotors if you want.

front easy with any 2000 pony front hub & rotors.

I am still running factory front & rear calipers.
no adapters. I do how-ever run aftermarket steel racing wheels.






I can say I am VERY HARD on my wheels & brakes!!

Check out motorsport-tech.com. I am using their 3/4 inch wheel adapters on the rear with 2005 Mustang wheels. They fit good with no problems.

Any pics? I may just do hub swap. It seems fairly simple.

There's a write up on it in the Technical Articles (follow the articles link from the home page and then brouse through the different sections.) The Hub swap is in the suspension section.

I've been reading through that. The frustrating part is looking for rear hubs. They all say "99-04" cobra. Even summit racing. 99 is 28 spline and 00-04s are 31 correct? But I'm sure just making a call would clear things up.

I'll try to get some pics on here as soon as possible. This week's work is crazy (Way before sunrise till after dark.) BTW, I did the sn95 hub swap on the front, and the clearance on the front is really close.

I think all 99-04 mustangs have 28 spline axle count. Only cobras got the 31 IIRC

To use the Cobra hubs & rotors, you would need the adapters & 17"+ wheels



The outer hub is 28 spline.

He'd need 17" wheels if he used front Cobra rotors/calipers. The cobra rear rotors/relocation brackets only require a 16"
