Lack of wheel's out there for mn12.

I spent like 2 hour's last night looking for wheel's on the internet for my bird. I have some cash burning a hole in my pocket yet I can't find one single rim that I havent seen before for this stupid a$$ 5 x 4.25 lug pattern. I have always liked FR500's, I looked for like a hour just for those in the dumb pattern. I'm sick of "R's" all over the place!!

I know what your gonna say, "Do the hub swap." I don't wanna do the hub swap. I dont think I should have too. Ford should have just used to 5 x 4.50 pattern all along for this car. I'm thinking about taking my rim money and using it for a down payment on a used Cobra and say to hell with it.

//RANT OFF!

Just do the hub swap

I always thought it was stupid to do the hub swap but its not that bad. It will be another $500 in parts over the price of the rims and tires. But in the long run, I think its better. And then you will be happy with the rims on your car too. Im starting to buy all the parts for my swap right now. And it helps that it only cost me $360 for a set of 18x9 rims.

Search for 5 x 108.. Volvo 850's share the pattern, offset is perfect, but they're not hubcentric (center hole is bigger)
