Was cruising Tire Factory's web page and decided to look up the re-released slotted mag American racing is putting out now. Seems to be that they have a 15x7 and 17x7 for our 4 on 4.25 bolt pattern! Pretty cool eh??
Too bad thay don offer a 15x8 in the same pattern... wonder why not?
Wow I saw that American Racing brought them back, but I never dreamed they would make them in a 4 on 4 1/4" bolt circle! What were they thinking? Fox body and Saab guys would buy them? I am not sure why they did, but I need to order them before they discontinue them American Racing discontinues wheels quicker then they bring out new ones
Yeah I was likely conceived in the back seat of my dads 69 Cougar (with five slots) while my follks listened to 8 tracks back in 1974. Not that long ago really Saddly I am almost twice as old as some of the gals and dudes on the II forum. I was wearing pink shirts and white pants (rolled up like Don Johnson) with deck shoes when Eos was born! [for the record I was and still am straight). Not to under-estimate the buying power of the 150 people in the world that love Mustang II's what freakiin' car would these wheels actually fit?? The back spacing would not be ideal for fox cars. The Focus, Contour and Tempo would look kinda strange and they would stick out. Old Fords have 4 on 4 1/2" bolt pattern. The II pattern is very common of european cars but what euro dude would want five slots The more I think of it the more I think I should order them quickly
As eveybody knows bolt circle and proper back spacing is only half the battle of fitting a wheel to a car. Center bore and proper cailper clearance also come in to play. I checked american Racing's aplication guide and the 15X7" Ansen Slot is listed as fitting the II. The 17" is not listed though?! I want the 15's anyhow so someone else will have to trial fit the 17's.
