Lincoln LS rims

I wonder if anyone knows if Lincoln LS 17 Rims will fit on 94 Cougar with PBR? The junkyard by my house got a set on good condition.

Too much offset, they'll hit the spindles.

Just remember, offset and hub bore size are critical to fitment as well. Bolt circle is just one factor.

Yeah, I was disappointed that the LS rims wouldn't work too. I guess I will stick to mini-van wheels.

The Jag S stype wheels do not work without a huge spacer in the front to clear the spindles.

This is not safe, so I don't recommend those wheels.

Trust me I bought a set years ago, lol.

I'm glad that I decided to ask before that I invest money. I got a small budget to get this Cougar going.

I found a pair of wheels off of a 2012 Focus. If I remember, they have the same offset and bolt pattern as MN12.

Here's another list I pulled from the Focus forum. These are all 5x108 (5x4.25) bolt pattern.

Ford
Taurus/Sable 91-07
Thunderbird 89-04
Windstar 95-04

Jaguar
S-Type 99-03
X-Type 01-03

Lincoln
Continental 88-94, 95-03
LS6 00-03
Mark VII 93-00

Mercury
Cougar 89-98
Sable 86-05

Volvo
240 76-93
740 83-98
850 94-00
940 91-98
960 94-00
C70 98-00
60 Series 00-03
70 Series 98-03
90 Series 98-00
XC90 03

I can not vouch for those. I just thought I would toss it out there...

+1 on the Focus rims! One note, they rubbed a TINY bit on the stock calipers, but, they are fine with the PBR calipers. Might be able to pick them of cheap from the kiddo's that update to da 22's



I picked up my rims with NEW tires for $400 - I would LOVE to see how well the Focus ST 18's would look.

The Focus wheels do look a little more "sunken in" than the OEM MN12 wheels..

They must be slightly more positive + offset..

Thanks for that info..

I have not had an opportunity to put them on. And I only have the 2, not a full set. I basically got them for some really nice 'spares'.

Size: 16x7
Lugs: 5
Bolt Pattern: 108mm
Offset: 50mm
