Just wondering if anybody has used wheel adapters to install a mustang bolt pattern wheel on our bird with out swapping the hubs? what's your experience our your thoughts?

It's worth the extra effort to just do the hub swap. ;)

Usually the issue is that the adapters are at least 1" thick, and the MN12 cars need a fairly high offset wheel to begin with ... so you're losing 25 mm of offset with the adapters. Unless the particular wheel you are looking at is available in a very high offset, +50 or more, chances are the tires will be even with, or out of the fender. There are some wheels in 5 on 114.3 (Mustang) pattern available with extreme high offset, usually Japanese application, Honda S-2000 for example. Then you have to make sure that the hub bore is large enough too.
