    Hello all. Question on rims. Will the newer cobra torq thrust style rims fit on my 71 grabber? They are five lug but worried about center caps. 17's 235. 55 all around.

    The bolt pattern should fit but they have a bad off set that could cause problems with the suspension on front and the springs on the rear!

    Some 1.5"-2" spacers/adapters should do the trick

    Bullitt wheels

    Recently I had 17X8 Bullitt wheels on my Comet.
    You'll need spacers...mine had 1'' 3/16 at the back and 1'' 1/4 at the front.
    They hit the subframe only when you turn the wheels at full position.

    I test fit my 2006 FR Chrome 17" bullits on my 74 Grabber to see how they would look. I used 2" spacers on the rear and 1.5" spacers on the front. Selected these based on an earlier post and they fit very well and looked great. Never drove the car with them, however.

    I have a set of adapters that would work for you. I just sold my 18x10 and 18x9 wheels that I had on my project maverick. The adapters are 2= 2" billet for the rear and 1 1/2" for the front. PM me if interested
