I was looking through craigslist for some new rims. Nothing nice, just better than the bad rims I have now. I came across an ad for a full set of Mustang Pony wheels. http://columbia.craigslist.org/pts/1299038105.html It says they are 4 lug, and I suppose because they are ford, they have a 4x100 pattern? Any help would be greatly appreciated! I just want to get rid of my old rims. My car looks so nice, and with the rims, it's just bad



sorry about the silly pose- it was for my friends lol.[/img]

yeah, it's a no go

If you want to put stock wheels from another car onto yours... look for anything 4x100 (note... some wheels may require spacers as the offset may be different)

rims like:

90-94 protege
1st gen Sephia
MX3
96-00 civic
del sol
1st gen saturn SL1 and SL2 (may require spacers)
318 bottle caps
certain year jettas

there are tons of others, but these are just a few

I found a set of these in the junk yard a few months ago:



They were off a Daewoo Nubira. I took one and put it on a 2nd gen... looked pretty good. Unfortunately, one was REALLY curbed up... or else I would have taken them home

yeah, I don't even care what rims I get as long as they are better than the ones I have on right now, lol.

You mean Daewoo Nubira.

Miata wheels will also fit.

I have 18's on my blue car, just need to make sure the offset is perfect to fit without hitting the strut. I had to totally cut out my fenderwell lips in the rear so that they could tuck in.

There is a guy on the laser board with a KF-KH Laser with 20" wheels. They fit, but I believe he did coilovers, which gives more room on the strut side.

**edit - I just went back and looked... he did a custom widebody kit, which is why he could fit the 20's

Personally, I think 16's are the perfect size. Anything larger belongs on donked out caddy's and trucks. 16x6.5 or 16x7. Run a 205/50 or 205/55 on the 7" wide rim. I think any wider would cause rubbing issues in the front, but may look a bit "stretched"

Those will be to big on a 16, run 205/45-16.

They wouldn't make 40 series tires if they didn't work. Lots of cars are shipping with 40 series tires from the factory now.

I'm just saying, personal preference.

Edit:

My old supra with 225/50's in the rear, and 205/55's in the front. But I guess the escort is a much smaller car so I suppose the 40 series tire would look like it fits.
