Anyone know this setup?

I want those wheels and stance really badly. I'm hoping those wheels don't require a hubswap.

That's Melon's car..
AFAIK..Those are in the MN12 bolt pattern..
Only problem is, they don't make those wheels anymore..
IIRC..They were Dante Designs Bullit replicas..

Aw man. Thanks for the help guys. I really like the way the Bulitt style wheels look. The only other wheel I like on these cars is the Saleen style ones. But they're quite overused.

The Cobra R style is the best looking rim for these cars IMHO. Have you looked at those?

BTW, Bullitt is spelled with two L's and two T's.

Mods? Yea, I got mods ...
Air silencer delete, warp drive, dilithium crystals, flux capacitor, Slingshot Rubber band power adder, Moonshine & Gas, Leaf Blower Supercharger, Hamster Wheel & Hamster, Energizer Bunny generating 1.21 gigawatts, Mr. Fusion® Home Energy Reactor, hover conversion and a sextant celestial navigation system (The original GPS)

He goes by neverfastenough..I don't see him here often though, spends most of his time on SCCoA..

I don't know if he still has those wheels or not..

Anyways, they are 5x4.5 staggered,19x8.5 front 19x9.5 rear, +35 offset front and rear..

Tires are Pirelli P Zero Rosso directional for the front and Pirelli P Zero Corsa System for the rear, asymmetric. 245/40/19 and 285/35/19.

He's got new wheels, so maybe he'll sell you his old ones?

Click Me

With the new Focus', Fusions and such having 5x108 patterns, options have certainly opened up from a few years ago. Above is a link to amazon with a bunch of stuff...

1995 Thunderbird LX - 130,000 miles. Purchased for $350 from the bad side of town.
2015 Fiesta SE - 24000 miles. Purchased after my Trailblazer set itself ablaze...

My three favorite places to shop for wheels are:

Tire rack - already mentioned

Discount tire - Wheel Search - Discount Tire Direct

Summitracing - https://www.summitracing.com/search/...rder=Ascending

I have The Motegi's below on my Mark VIII. They are a dual pattern 5x4.25 and5x4.5 so i can always upgrade my hubs later for brakes wo buying new wheels.

Staggered concave looks to be in right now. I'm looking at a set but can't find many pics of concave wheels on a Tbird. Know of any more out there?

Thanks for the links guys. Yeah, JD, the concave look is on point, really would like to get a nice setup on mine, the Cobra R replicas are overused and don't look too great to be honest.

I'm sure you guys know this setup.
392Bird's car.

I know they're Cobra R reps, but what size are these in? I like this size and finish. I'll probably buy these if I can find them.

These are Sex Wheels but I'm not sure what model of Sex wheels these are. Anyone know of the setup? Offset, dimensions, etc. I'm interested in these.

Rick, could I get pictures of them, especially if you have them on the car? I'm interested.


Creighton, 17 and 7.5 seems a bit too small and the Cobra R look without the deep dish is not as good looking.

Agree. The 89 SC is just a tool around town car. I liked these better than stock and price was right. 17x9 going on the 95. Think 18" fill the wheel well better. Interested in what you find.

Depends, is your SC lowered? my LX is lowered so maybe 17's would fill up nicely with a thicker sidewall tire, but I think the SC's were already lower than my LX is from the factory so I'm probably just a little lower than a SC right now.

Nope. Can't in the land of speed bumps/potholes everywhere. Taller tires is all I can do when this set is done. 17" look fine on lowered cars.

Too bad were on opposite sides of the US or I think I would be interested in those. I always liked those stock 5 stars..
