Mustang GT Wheels

If i found a set of the old Mustang GT 17's with the center cap. Could i just have a machine shop redrill holes in the wheels so that they would fit my bolt pattern? What would i need to tell the machine shop to do exactly?

Yeah you can do that, or you can always upgrade your rotors and brakes to the ones that the Cobras used, but you can do that.

tell the machine shop that you want a bolt pattern drilled to 5x4.25in or 5x108mm. I had a set of rotors drilled and gave them an old rotor as a template.

How much is it likely to run? to have the machine shop drill the mustang wheels out to the MN12 bolt pattern.

It cost me $180 to have mine redrilled. However, I didnt just take them to a machine shop, I took them to a shop that specalizes in redrilling rims.

How exactly do they redrill it? Do they have to drill 5 new holes or just drill the existing holes to new size?

I always assumed you had doen a hub swap, how do those center caps fit with the different bolt patter? Anyways those rims look great on that car.

So they are like slotted? Is this something a normal machinist could do? I happen to have a machine shop at my disposal
