    Unless you have 14" rotors, there's a very good chance a 17" spare will fit, and it will be much easier to find.

    The 2000 Cobra R used a 17" 98 Cobra wheel as its spare. I'm not aware of a space saver spare that will clear 4-piston calipers, though there's a chance that the spare from an Evo 8/9, STI, or a 350Z with the Brembo package might. I've looked into that but haven't been able to find a clear answer.

    However, if you're only using 2-piston calipers, a 17" Mustang Cobra spare should work.
    Be excellent to each other.

    I picked 1 up on e bay 18" for $110.00 for a newer mustang, because i run 18" with cobra brakes also.

    I picked up a pair of 17inch spares today at the pick n save from Ford Five Hundreds...plan to use them as skinnies on a poor mans budget.

    I run the Cobra Stamped PBR Calipers and a 13inch rotor.
    Was 50% off day at pick n save ...15$ for the pair.

    13-up Lincoln MKZ has 5 x 108, so that would only work with stock SC bolt pattern.

    Tim, have you test-fitted the Five Hundred wheels? They are 5 x 114.3, but I'm thinking that the hub hole is too small for Cobra hubs.


    cheers

    Only fitment was at the pick n save. I verified the spare fit on a wrecked mustang new edge, which is the same for the most part as my front setup. I haven't tested on my own car, but will update once I do.

    Tim, I think that you should be OK if it fit the Mustang in the yard.
