Will the new Thunderbird (2001-2004) rims work with our MN 12?s

Curiosity, I did the search and came back with nothing. Is the 60mm offset too much?

Still around and in Georgia.

You'll need a 20mm spacer. The offset is too high to run on our cars. The bolt pattern is fine and someone is running the Lincoln LS wheels and they are the same specs as the T-Bird wheels.

LS wheels are closer to our offset i belive but I have seen a black 94/95 in my area with newer t-bird rims. I personally don't liek it and they are a big safety risk with that large a spacer. I think Keith (VicRattlehead) saw the same car too.

Thanks for the advice. My not even going to attempt to use the new Thunderbird wheels. The offset combined with the width of the tires is too much.
