    Are the back TRX's widened or do they just look that way? Definitely looks great on the bird.

    Thanks.

    The wheels are Center Lines (15 x 7 front and 16 x 8 rears)

    The Mustang TRX centers are bolted on and are removable. I had them machined down to fit inside the Center Line wheels.

    That looks really cool.
    I was wondering if you have a thread on how those wheels were built like that?
    I am curious on how the trx center sections bolt up.
    I want to keep my original wheels for my car for street use but have the rears widened and the fronts narrowed but I am also doing a five lug conversion.
    I am wanting to have a stock look wheel for the street but fit big drag
    radials for the rear and skinny's up front but still look like stock Thunderbird wheels to the average person.
    I am going to be running race wheels for just that but I still would like to have a sleeper look on the street.
    It would be cool to see how those wheels of yours work if you can show that it would be really cool
    Thanks

    Mark:
    The centers are held on by the long wheel studs.
    I put on the Center Line wheels and torque down the lug nuts as normal.
    I then install the machined TRX centers and install another 4 lug nuts and tighten down. That's it.

    These pics are the T-Bird/Cougar ones I did in 2007, but the idea works the same on the Mustang TRX's.

    Hope this helps.

    Lots of nice wheels posted. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder and I think Ford got it right for the most part. The 10 hole, Snowflake (only on the 87 and 88) and the TRX wheels really "fit" the look of these cars. While never offered, the 5 spoke Cobra R's fit the look of the car really well too.
