By the way, do they make the charcoal wheels for our bolt pattern? Last time I checked at wheelsmarket.com they didnt.

I think the charcole would be sweet on the black bird of yours.

I would vote 17x9 but whatever fits your needs would be good on it.

I dont know where they got them for that red SC which looks awesome btw. But performancewheeloutlet.com doesnt mention not having them in charcole. I know the other site said they didnt have them yet. I am wondering if this site actually has them in charcole for the tbird and if they actually have all the different sizes for the tbird.

i had mine custom built, as far as i know, nobody builds that wheel in our 5-108. mine are 18x9. if you want 16x8 and charcoal, either do the hub swap, or let me know if you need the special build.

I wouldn't think a special build on the charcoal would be a big deal. the chrome and polished wheels are actually made for Mustangs to start with and then the lug holes are just drilled in a smaller pattern and the back space is set for a T-bird. On the back of my wheels, I can tell where the holes were supposed to be drilled for the Mustang.

but charcoal is not an option

This same wheel offset (+24mm) also fits 1989-1997 T-Bird (5x4.25" or 5x108mm lug-pattern) and all Lincoln Mark VII and VIII (front and rear), however this Charcoal Gray paint finish is not available for these applications.

get them in unfinished, and take them to a powder coater. I am thinking of doing this and powder coating them body color (a dark green).

How much is it to powder coat them? Would in be easier to buy the wheels with the mustang bolt pattern and then do a hub swap?

You dont need to do any hub swaping, if you look on the website it says that applications are availible for cars 89-97. My buddy is doing mine for free, so Imnot sure on how much it would be

if you got the bigger wheels it would rub on the caliper?...and a mustang hub swaps not hard in the front...rears another story but i think the whole swap costs like 700 or so dollars
