2004 chrome Thunderbird wheels on a 1995

Does anybody know if the wheels from a 2004 Thunderbird will fit on a 95 bird? And if so, does anybody have a picture of those style wheels on an older bird?

Thanks 96dirtybird. Do you know if spacers were used? From reading the links it looked like some people thought you would need spacers. I'm surprised I haven't seen more 94-97 birds with the retro bird wheels.

I have no idea if they were used in that application, however I do know you would need some to fill the "gap."

Now, on that note, many will tell you and I agree that spacers are not the best idea. I personally have never purchased/swapped wheels that weren't designed for my specifications on any of my cars.

p.s. - 3 of my cars have all been birds. lol

Maybe ask some local tire/wheel shops.
