Re: wheels

What year is your car and what year are the wheels?

Re: wheels

Go to crownvic.net and you will see many examples of CV's with Mustang wheels.

Re: wheels

2002 and older Panthers are 0mm offset, where the mustang is +30mm offset. They will not fit right.

Re: wheels



You're right. They don't fit at all.

Re: wheels

I didn't say they wouldn't fit, I said they wouldn't fit right. Running differeent offset wheels than the car was designed changes a variable in the suspension geometry. Post as many pictures as you want, but the stock offset for a 2002 and older Panther is 0mm. Plus those wheels are the deep dish version and have less positive offset than the stock mustang bullet wheels.

Re: wheels

30mm is about an inch. It doesn't do that much to the suspension geometry.
