    Depends on the center bore. You need about 70mm or 2.75”.

    I think I got these particular wheels on my MGM. The ET is different, and the central o r i f i c e was around 62.5, compared to 70 which should be there. Also, the rear drums have a conical finish at the central o r i f i c e , so the steelies can unscrew themselves. Had to enlarge the central you-know-what to have them installed.

    Early boxes had 14's but why would you want to? Handling is sketchy enough as it is with 15's. I can't imagine going any smaller.

    I had 14x6 or 14x 6 1/2 inch stock rims on my 82 MGM and the 79 LTD S wagon. That is what came from the factory. Ran 225x70x14 tires. The cars looked good. Not all 14 in. Ford rims will fit.

    My wag came with 14 X 7's. If it were me, I'd get those jar-lids and then find some 15 X 7's with a Ford center to hammer them on to.

    If you got a trailer or parts cars they work good for spares or moving cars around. But that's about it. No one is doing concourse restorations on panthers (yet).
