I own a 2005 Crown Vic LX Sport and want to replace my 17" 5-spoke Aluminum Wheels.

The after wheel market is a bit tricky so I am looking for some info.

The Correct Ford Part Number would be helpful.There was a Ford Service Bulletin out several years back about counterfeit wheels. Does anyone have a pdf copy?


Specs are different between 200-2001 wheels and the 2003+ wheels 

While the rims appear the same, there is a difference in the offset and backspacing.

                        Offset               Backspacing

2001 - 2002     6mm|1/4"         82.9mm|3-1/4"

2003+              45mm|1-3/4"    133.4mm|5-1/4"


The other rim specifications are the same

Bolt Pattern     114.3mm / 4-1/2" x 5

Diameter          17"

Width               7"

Center Bore     70.5mm / 2-3/4"


Any info and advice would be useful.

My 11 LX Came from the northern states and the wheels were a little pitted, so I had them refinished locally.


Look brand new when they were done.


All 03+ Wheels should fit your vic.  98-02 will fit but will stick out and look goofy.
