New wheels help

I am buying new wheels for my 89 mustang gt. I have new tires that are for 16 inch rims. I found a few that I like online and I am wondering if they would fit and be good. Any help works! This is what I found...

Re: New wheels help

79-94 Mustangs use a 4 x 4.25" or 4 x 108 MM bolt pattern.
Backspacing can need to be as much as 6" on the rear wheels for up to 10" wide rims.
Most tire and wheel sites will have fitment guides or charts.

Some rims say front wheel drive. Would those still work or not?

No, the 95's are a 5 x 4.5 bolt pattern.

Usually FWD rims won't work on RWD vehicles.


Those rims would work on the back, but may have too much backspacing for the front, so the answer is yes, no, maybe.
The wheel manufacturer should be able to tell you what will fit.

Is there a website that sells 16 inch wheels for 4 lug?

There are lots of websites that have 16" 4-lug wheels.
Take a look at American Muscle and Latemodel Restoration, or any of the tire and wheel discount sites for that matter.
