97 thunderbird rim questions

hi, im about to buy a thunderbird, and it needs some rims. I barely have any money to spend, so i cant buy new ones. I found some stock mustang rims that would look nice on my car, but after some research i found out they wont fit on my car without a mustang hub. what rims can fit on the thunderbird? any advice for me? i wanna find some decent ones for under $250. Might just end up painting the stockers so they at least stand out.

Re: 97 thunderbird rim questions

On the inside of your rim there should be a number like "5x90" or something like that. Thats the lug pattern, match the numbers with whatever wheels you like and you should be set
