17" Lincoln LS Rims with 235/50-17 Tires

I picked up a set of 4 Lincoln LS 17" Rims with tires (only one tire is in decent shape).
These will fit any MN-12 Bird/Coug or FN-10 Mark VIII.

Here is a pic as removed - I haven't cleaned them up or anything yet.
They are nice rims, light and clean!

I also have all the lug nuts that go to these rims.

I am asking $275 for them NOT including shipping.
I travel a lot for work and may be able to meet a buyer somewhere with them.

They look good. What's the offset on those?

Is the offset that different?

I think I'll bolt them up on the Bird when I get home and take pics so everyone can see what they will look like (and what kind of spacer I'll need if that's the case).

Patrick, I'll find out what the offset is for ya!

Yup, definitely need spacers, probably about 1" thick. I picked up a set of those a while back thinking I would put them on my MarkVIII, but they look goofy in the rear from how far in they sit, and they won't even bolt up on the front because they hit the spindle.

-98 Mark VIII LSC, Procharger P600b, TR3650 swap and 3.73s.
-90 SC Automatic rustbucket winter beater

Well, as usual, y'all were right.

Thanks for the heads up. I'm trying to different options to make them work and when I find the one I like the best, I'll package the solution with the rims.

Hard to sell if the buyer can't use them!

For what it's worth, I had a set of spacers made at a machine shop (still have them) for my 16" Lincoln LS wheels. I ran them for years with zero problems.

Aftermarket universal-fit spacers can be dangerous due to the lack of material, so they may have a propensity to crack. The spacers I had made are custom machined out of round stock aluminum to perfectly fit the MN12 bolt pattern and hub with very little play. They are 1/4" thick.

It is possible to safely run spacers and LS wheels.

Do you have any pics of your car with these rims and the 1/4 inch spacers? That's what I was gonna try first!

Got it - THANKS!

Rims are still for sale, he just sent me some pics of them on his car with 1/4" spacers.
Here are the pics of rims very similar to what I have for sale - his LS rims are a little different, but y'all get the idea of what they look like mounted with 1/4" spacers.
