Ok, I have a 94 4.6 V8 Cougar XR7. I think it would look good with American Racing Ansen Sprint wheels. I know I have to swap out the hubs from 4.25 to 4.5, but I don't know if the Sprint rims will even fit. I want to put 15x7 Sprints on it all the way around unless I can fit 15x8s on the back. Any and all help is appreciated, thanks in advance.
Here's the link to the AR page for the wheels I'm talking about with the specs:
Does anybody have any suggestions as to some 15 inch old school rims, since the sprints are out. I'm big into that kind of stuff, I was never a fan of the 20 inch dubs and all that horse**** or the import looking rims. I'm about to just say **** it and rock some steelies.
Well, they're not 15" rims, but some Mach 1 style wheels would probably look good on there. They are supposed to look like the old magnum 500 wheels but are 17". I'm not sure where you can get them in 5 x 4.25 though.
it could be cool if the old school magnum 500 fits too, i always thought the new mack 1 wheels look too plain
Isn't it wheel vintiques or something that makes new magnum 500 wheels in 17"? Nut sure if they make 15" that would fit. They'll probably all be in 5 x 4.5 if you find them anyways, although you could do the hub swap.
I plan on doing the hub swap when I need new brakes (estimated by summer time) which is also when I plan on getting new tires, so I'm looking for wheels with the 4.5 bolt circle. These are all good ideas, I especially like the mag 500s because I love the old 60's mustangs, does anyone know where I can get some size specs on all of this stuff. I think I'm going to need some positive offset to get them to fit properly, do they make all those wheels with offsets? I'm winging it here so anybody with the knowledge, step forward.
Most of the billet wheel options won't give you the lip you see in those links. It takes a certain type of barrel AND Center section to get the monster lip that is portrayed in those pics. Like this one for instance.
I have loads of other pics of this setup as well...Not many billet centers have the type that curves inside the barrel helping achieve that monster lip.
