Stumbled across a REALLY GOOD Wheel page. Covers How to Measure Bolt Patterns, How to Measure Wheel Backspace or Offset, How to Determine Vehicle Fitment, Determine Wheel Caliper Clearance, Typical Lug Nut Torque Specifications, Wheel Terminology... Even has a backspace to Offset Conversion Chart. ::

And, just to keep all the good wheel info in one post (in case anyone EVER searches), I'll include Jay's Wheel/Tire Charts...

Very nice info -- a definite keeper.
As for the Search button, perhaps Bob can remove it and replace it with something people use?
(snicker...). Sorry, I'm guilty too...

Whatever became of an FAQ for the forum contents and not just one for using it?
Get a big enough Mustang FAQ and you could publish it in book form!

Just out of curiosity, why don't you agree with 16x7 fronts Bob ?

Actually i mentioned the site about 3 weeks ago in response to another question, guess i should have made it a general posting .. but hey, who's counting :)

I've found it a great link for sending to people who are selling wheels on Ehay, a lot of folks dont know how to properly measure wheels and if they follow the info you can be sure you end up with a 15x7 and not a 15x8 .. with proper backspacing, etc.

I'm still looking for my American Racing Vectors in a 15x7 .. for a decent price ..
