Mustang wheels and spacers

I'm toying with the notion of changing out the factory fan blade wheels on my 1993 Thunderbird to A set of mustang GT California special 2006 through 2009 Torque thrust style 18" wheels.
I know the bolt pattern is not the same and the backspacing is different on the mustang wheels.
I found a set on Amazon of 1.25" hub centric thickness spacer adapters that mount on the 5x108 hubs and have the 5x114 pattern for mustang.
Would these adapters work for those mustang wheels?

2003 Crown Victoria LX
1995 Camaro Z28 M6
1992 mustang LX 5.0 H.O A4

1.25" spacers will space those wheels out 1.25" out past the fenders. Do it right or don't do it

These seem a lot more manageable than a whole 1.25 inches.

0.59 inches.

The swap is relatively easy. Front hubs are direct replacements from any SN mustang and the 99 cobra rear hubs are too. Just the rears are expensive and have to be pressed out/in. You might be able to save a buck by having your stock rear hubs re drilled by a machine shop.

First: Stacie, 1996 Tbird LX, mild build NPI engine, PI cams and intake, Long tube headers, Jmod.

Second: Ellie, 1989 Tbird SC, r̶e̶s̶t̶o̶r̶i̶n̶g̶ ̶t̶o̶ ̶b̶e̶ ̶n̶e̶w̶ ̶d̶a̶i̶l̶y̶. off the deep end

Third: 1997 Dodge Ram 1500, thirsty daily.

Fourth: 1990 Tbird SC, GT40 5.0 mated to m5r2, BBK long tubes, motor out the hood, drift car.
