Lots of times, on certain thing half a mm is quite a difference. I never tried taurus wheels on a 240. Might work, might wobble dunno.

Cool, good thing to know. How's the offset on the Taurus wheels work out on Volvo 240? Still need spacers I take it?

I looked it up & the 2001 Lincoln LS has 107.9 bolt pattern too. And there are several very cool looking Lincoln LS wheels too. One with polished spokes/centers

Anyone know where I can purchase hubcentric adapters for 5x4.25 to 5x4.5. The rims are from a 93 ford ranger. I know that the 89 Mustangs had the same pattern as the 72 142. Also, would I need spacers? the rims are 15'' on 195/65/R14 tires.

I've been told certain AMC cars had 107.9 pattern too, but this book does not go back far enough to list them.

This book also lsts the wheel offsets, and width of rim, and of course the tire sizes.

If anyone wants me to look up/check a wheel for them just post in this thread or PM me.

If you're gonna get thick spacers you might as well change the bolt pattern and use more attractive MB or BMW wheels.

but them on the car, jack the car up, and have someone put it in gear and drive the wheels so you can just stand there and let the car do all the work for polishing.

18x8.5, ET32 with low padding, 5x114.3 , I'm gonna give it a try on polishing, worst case scenario I can always send them out.

Those are 17"s I believe cause the small caps, I'm going to run 215/35/18 on them with 32mm adapters.

It'll look somewhat like this, except I want the full polish on the face as well.
