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.
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
Center Bore 70.5mm / 2-3/4"
Any info and advice would be useful.
