Ansen Sprint

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:

I'm wondering if I'll have any rub issues or if they'll tuck in the wells properly because they're deep dish rims, I don't want them sticking out making me look like a goon. Thanks again.

If they are 0 offset like the website says, I would think they wouldnt fit very well.

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.

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.

Check this site out. I've had my eye on it for quite some time and like a few of the wheels they offer...

These are highly engineered precision vehicles, the first step in diagnosing the problem is to strike the suspected offending part sharply and repeatedly with a blunt object, then re-test.

American Racing does a sweet Minilite clone called the Silverstone, and the specs aren't too far off what we would need...42mm offset, 5.5 BS on a 17x7 wheel.

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.
