I saw on an earlier post that one of you guys thinks that the Lincoln LS bolt pattern/offset will be similar to the '05. What do you guys think? If so, I was just on looking at the styles of rims, and there are some 18" and 19" rims that look awesome.

How do you guys think a Boss 302 type of stripe would look on the 05? anyone have any photoshopped pics of a 05 Boss 302?

Finally, has anyone seen the red in person? the red I saw down in Nashville at the 40th was more of a maroon color. Is ford going to make a cherry red?

The Lincoln LS uses a 5 x 4-1/4" pattern with a 60 mm offset. Someone told me that you can put wheels on a LS that have as low as a 45 mm offset, but I don't know if that is true.

Over on StangSource, someone posted that he asked a Ford engineer who was at one of the events that the 05 Stang was shown at. The engineer told him that the 05 stang had lug pattern pattern of 5x4-1/2 with V8 offset 45mm and V6 - 39mm

There have been at least 50 Boss photo-chops, do a search or read through the old posts.

There will be 2 reds for 05, torch red and redfire, both are carry over colors.
