I have a 1992 Ford Thunderbird SC.. and I have figured out that the bolt pattern is 5x4.25..is that correct.... my second and most important question is..I found a set of bullet rims that are 17's and a 4.5x5 pattern and I would like to know if those would fit my car even with some minimal milling?.. I really like these rims and would like to buy them but would not like to waste my time or my money so any help would be AWESOME!... in advance thanks for any/all help

Yes, all MN12's came from the factory with the 5x4.25 (108mm) bolt pattern.

You would need to do the Mustang hub swap to run those wheels.

Alternatively, www.customwheelsmarket.com used to sell Bullitt replicas in our bolt pattern, though I'm not certain if they still do. Brad, cudaz101 on here, also offers a pretty wide selection of wheels with the 5x4.25" bolt pattern.

Also another key factor is how much offset do those wheels have.
