  • Would these work?

    For my 74 Avanti?

    I'm looking at an expensive fix for these Italian jobs on the car now.
    Thanks!

    can you find out what the offset is? Coming from a Jeep I'd be worried that they'd have a serious offset, FWD and 4WD vehicles tend to have wheels with a lot of backspace. IIRC the bolt pattern will work though, and some Jeep wheels do fit a Stude, just don't remember which ones.

    I've always wanted to try the BBS-esque 16" wheels from a Crown Vic, that may be something else worth looking into. Personally I think those look better than the Jeep wheels but they have a similar pattern. Also the base model new Mustang wheels with the fake spinners, but I bet they would need spacers.

      I checked OEM info and the bolt pattern is the same, but yeah, Nate, I was thinking about that offset, too. Mine is about 4.25" now and I'd bet those are deeper. I might call the guy and have him put a tape measure to it.
      Then there's this one:

      Not as fancy but easier to keep clean.

        I called the guy with the Cherokee wheels and he measured using a bar across the back of the rim, for a drop of 5.25".

          In the back they will be fine. In the front it might hit or come uncomfortably close to the stearing tie rod end.
