does anyone know if anything came with 4 1/4" on 5 - 7" wide stock steel rims? All I can find are 6" wide rims off of a taurus. And no I can't run race rims. They switched the rules this year to only allow used hoosier tires (approved by track) and I don't know how well they will work on 6" rims.

thanks

Had the same trouble,
drilled rotors and hubs for 4 1/2.
Couldn't find the wheels anywhere, looked everywhere!

FORD RANGERS USE THE SAME BOLT PATTERN NOT SURE IF THE STEEL WHEELS ARE 6 OR 7" WIDE. I THINK SOME OF THE OLD MOPARS FROM BACK IN THE 70'S USE THAT PATTERN AS WELL. HOPE THIS HELPS.

Are you running a 89-97 T-bird? One of the common upgrades for a MN12 chassis (the 89-97 T-bird, MarkVII and Cougar) is swapping to 4 1/2" hubs. In front, just get new bearings/hubs from a late model mustang (99 I think) and in the rear, press out the 4 1/4" hub and press in a 4 1/2" hub also from a Mustang ('99 cobra I believe). Then, the easiest thing is to redrill the rotors or go and upgrade to the Mustang brakes as well.

Oh... T-birds and Cougars came with 6" steel wheels too. Although, for racing, I'd switch to the 4 1/2" pattern to run racing wheels. Stock wheels bend real easy.
