Wheel suggestions

I have a hard time making decisions like this and I just wanted some outside views on the subject so with that said, what wheels do you guys like on our car? I was just thinking about going with some cobras but alot of people have those so I want something more "unique" but they do look sweet on the bird.

Depends on what you want. For a DD, I would reccomend 18's. I like smooth simple wheels, they go with out car better IMO. Check out tirerack.com, they have a sweet BBS in 18's I've been eyeing for a while. Also check out tires.com... both sites have quite a few options for our cars. Brad (Cudaz101) has quite a few options for our cars too... check out customwheelshop.com.

The link I sent you is for a set that fits the Thunderbird. No hub swap needed, those will bolt right on as they should.

I think that 03 cobra wheels look absolutely perfect on these cars. I don't know if you can get them in our bolt pattern or if you would have to do the hub swap, but if I were going to put something larger than 16"s on my car, thats what it would be.

You can get a similar wheel to the American Racing already in the bolt pattern.

Go to www.wheelcontact.com and click on wheels then look at the fords. They offer the wheels on that page in the Birds bolt pattern.

Your ego is writing checks your a$$ can't cash.
Installing a motor with some parts to go faster.
Oh yeah the engine is painted so that adds 15hp right there!

Cudaz101 has some of the 03 cobra's listed on his site. And they are (I think) in our bolt pattern.

Yeah, I think Brad (cudaz101) has the 03 Cobra's. They do look very sharp as well. Like everyone else has said, he has great customer service.

i think the polished 17x9 bullets would look awsome. would the backspacing be for right for my 93 in the 5x4.25 pattern? they aren't too expensive either.

hollow front cats, 3rd cat still there, no resonator, replaced by a single 40 series flowmaster, 2 3"x18" tips out back. screamin demon coil packs, mallory pro wires, motorcraft platinum plugs. intake resonator delete.
