I've thought that myself, as long as the bolt pattern is the same you can use them. They should be the same.

'93 Cobra = 4-lug

'93 Thunderbird (and all other MN12 chassis cars) = 5-lug

And the MN12 chassis 5-lug patterns is NOT the same as the Fox and SN95 5-lug pattern.

damn it you beat me to it.:hihi:

not to mention that the thunderbird wheels are 15s and the Cobra wheels are 17s

Why drive a Prius when you can have a Fiesta!!

Question Hey, just saw a 1997 t-bird, with cobra "R" wheels ?

If the bolt pattern is different, then how is this guy running cobra "R"'s on his 97 thunderbird? I'd like to put a set of cobra "R"s on my 97 t-bird as well.

Any idea's?
Thanks guys,
Mach

Change the rotors to some with the right bolt pattern.

The MN12 guys change their front axle hubs and rear axles for SN95 stuff...

Let's not forget that they make aftermarket replicas with which ever bolt pattern you want.

93' LX hatch, 460 w/150 plate, TH400, 9" w/ 3.60 spool. Best (so far!) of 9.40@ 146 mph with 1.40 spinning 60'
Reese,
Been saying single digit coming for 3 years.....guess I finally made it!
