    to fit late model mustang wheels, u need at least a 1" spacer all the way around to correct the offset

    Are you running extra long studs with a 1" spacer?

    without seeing those wheels under the car I would say theyre more of a truck wheel

    I like torque thrust and drag lites. the star wheels are ok but kinda plain and so 1970's chevy

    I have been thinking of slapping my explorer sport wheels on the maverick. They are 16" and IIRC have a pretty outward offset. Might be able to fit a better size tire on the rear.

    MrP,

    While the bolt pattern is the same be sure to verify that the Explorer wheel center bore will fit the Maverick disc or drum centers without interference.

    damn that's a nice looking car! I like the torque thrust style too.

    ever see the chop top version of your car posted around here before?

    Thanks, I got it from another forum member. I like the torque thrust style also.

    Haven't seen the drop top version but would like to.

    that's what I wondered for a quick second when you put the pic up here.

    And actually I said CHOP top.. not DROP top. Although we have a few of them around here too.

    Such as this.

    I've seen some older Fords with more subtle chops than this(more like making the front windows heightmore level with the rear) and I would LOVE to do something like this many years down the road too. Never hurts to dream, I guess. lol

    If you ever do that to yours, put up the specs on your cuts and welds and glass changes, I want to chop mine too... although... I might have to find a way to lower my seat if I do, I'm already brushing the roof and sometimes need a helmet for speedbumps. Bucket seats helped a lot, the bench was way too high.
