Not sure what the hub bore size is, but with a 4.5x5 bolt pattern would need to do a hub swap. Probably has a pretty compatible back spacing, would work but might not be ideal.

wheels



I have T-bird wheels on my son's 97 merc Sable.
Bolt pattern same as bird.
Bird wheels are .5" wider.

Don't know about the newer ones.

i do believe they changed the bolt pattern to 4.5 after the whole Ford 500 thing. otherwise the 06's were 4.25 still.

New Focus, Fusion, and MKZ are 5 on 108 as well, but higher offset than MN-12. All of the bigger vehicles, Taurus, MKS, Flex, Explorer, etc. are 5 on 114.3.

Those do seem to tuck like stock. I'm spoiled on my new edge bullitts though. The way they stick out looks much more aggressive!
