Mustang wheels?

Hi. I was wondering if Fox Body Mustang wheels would fit on our cars? I have the optional aluminum wheels on my '85 Elan and I would like to get a set of steel Mustang rims for winter use. The winter weather wrecks havoc on anything aluminum here in Kansas.

Yes they will. Your car is a fox platform, so other 4-lug fox wheels will fit just fine.

Yes, they are both 4x4.25 (4x108mm) bolt pattern, along with other fox chassis cars. Other Fords that use that pattern but the wheels will likely have the wrong offset are Tempos and the 2000~ Focus before they became 5 lug.
