Thanks for the reply. i contacted Ford Racing and apparently they were dropped a number of years ago.

I have been looking to buy a pair of these with no success apparently they were not very popular.

Too new at TCCOA to post a WTB.

The closest thing you're going to get to these is going to be in the Mustang's 5 x 4.5" lug pattern..

Which would require a hub swap..Here's an excellent write-up on doing that-->> MN-12 Bolt Circle Change

If you buy the parts used you could save a few bucks..I personally wouldn't buy used hubs though..

Here's a link to the Cobra R wheels I was referring to earlier-->>http://www.rockauto.com/dbphp/x,cata...ALY03285U.html


These are 17 x 8" in the 5 x 4.50"(5 x 114.3) lug pattern..

There are tons of aftermarket Cobra R wheels available in the 5 x 4.25" (5 x 108) lug pattern..The only thing is most of them are 17 x 9, 17 x 9.5, 17 x 10..etc..etc


Good luck whatever you decide to do..
