Well, ask your friend how you can fit a 4-lug 14" rim on a 5-lug vehicle. [Image: wink.gif]

They are stock/option on your Mustang, I've been prepping new Fords since 1978 and I'm sure I remember them. The only way to "prove it" would be to buy a factory sales flier and they will be pictured in the option list. You should be able to find one of those for less than $10.00.
Hope this helps, Rick B.

Those are the 14" aluminum wheels you wanted aluminum wheels but if you didn't opt for the TRX set-up.

If he persists...tell hime to try and bolt them up to a 5-lug Ranger..and then get another hobby besides talking out his ass [Image: biggrin.gif]... There were "similar" wheels used on a Ranger..and the full-size trucks even if I remember correctly.

Any connection between your reality and mine is purely coincidental..
