    Other cars with 5x108 bolt pattern

    Is the 1st gen Taurus the only car with 5x108 rim? Still trying to find a 17 or 18". Thinking I might search better if I knew other cars to look under.

    All 1986 - 2003 Taurus / Sable are 5 on 108 mm ... different offset though. Also all Windstar, same offset as Taurus. Some Volvos are that pattern too, but probably a FWD offset like Taurus.

    Thanks Ed! Every time I see your car I'm back to looking at the 18s.

    Yes, the 18-inchers are nice, but who knows ... maybe I'll be tired of them by next year, and trade up for some 19s !!

    Discount Tire Direct has some decent looking Fondmetal 19x9" wheels in Mustang bolt pattern ...

    An Alero would actually be 5 on 115 mm, very close to the Mustang 5 on 114.3 mm (4.5") ... I guess it's close enough to jam them on !!

    Takes guts to buy a set of rims just to see if you might be able to make them fit! Probably didn't know the difference.
    I found a big long list of wheels on a Taurus site. Most are straight off of Discount tires or Tire Rack, but some aren't. The problem I'm having is that not only can I not decide which one I like the most, but they're all 7" or 7.5". Not real comfortable with a 255 tire on there.

    Those do look nice. Similear to Ed's in style. I'm probably putting way too much thought into this, but I'm very picky and the rims you put on there make a big difference. I think that the Lincoln LS may have the same bolt pattern, but different offset, BTW. Not confirmed. Here are the ones I'm looking at most closely:

    #1 Pick 18x7.5" Wasn't crazy about the center cover, but I guess it's okay


    #2 17x7" Pretty narrow, similar to the top one, but in 17" read: cheaper tires


    #3 17x7" (Didn't like this too much until I tried them on a picture of my car)


    #4 18x7" Narrow again, especially for an 18". Discontinued, not offered in a 17" now and I might not be able to get a set at the end of this month when I do this. Still, I really like it for a 5 spoke


    Which one's of these do you guys like? I've got 2 favorites, but I change my mind ever 5 minutes. Gotten to where I kind of like the "rivet" look, kind of European or something. All fall JUST inside of budget, some more than others.
    Considering a 245 up front and a 255 in rear, so there would be a little less roll under up front when turning. Sacrifice rotations though.

    I saw a T-bird the other day with stock Mercedes wheels on it. It looked really dumb. Oddly enough, when I just now looked online all the Mercedes wheels I saw were 5 x 112, so in addition to having poor taste in wheels, I guess this guy somehow managed to jam the wrong size wheel on there. Either that or some Mercedes has the 5 x 108 pattern.

    Yup, I forgot Lincoln LS, 02 T-Bird, and Jaguar S-Type are all 5 on 108 mm as well. But they have too much positive offset compared to a MN-12 wheel. I remember trying my old 17x8-1/2" ROH wheels on the front of an LS on the hoist in the shop here a few years ago, would have stuck out of the front fender about an inch !!

    just for the record I have ls rims on my sc. problem is the front rubs the upper arm. rearfits fine except too far in. the only way to get the right off set it to make up for the half inch with spacers all around

    larger stock wheel design

    I would be very interested in those rims. I have not found a better rim design than my 94 wheel.
