Hi, im new to the whole supercoupe thing even thou this is my second one (90 and now a 89). Im really a mustang man but i love my T-Bird that i've put alot of time and money into it but here comes the problem: I want new shoes for it but first i heard that i could only go up to 18''s and now i hear that if i want to go with sum stang wheels i have to change the hub. Is this true?

to use wheels with a mustang bolt pattern then, Yes, you would have to change your hubs...

IIRC: mustangs are 5 X 4.5" and T-Birds are 5 X 4.25" not hard ot find aftermarket wheels with either bolt pattern...

if you do the hub swap does it matter what your or the same year as your Tbird
