Anyone have pics of their fox with stock pony wheels and a Turbo Coupe rearend??

i am thinking of doing this swap and i didnt get a chance to measure yet but looks like the factory pony wheels will still fit under the fenders.

everyone talks about it, but i searched and cant find any pictures....

with lowering springs, with the tires rub without rolling the fenders?

thanks

I ran the TC rear... and still run a modified TC rear now.

I never had stock pony's tho... I ran 16x8 cobra replica (+15mm offset) with Steeda Sport Springs...

As far as I can find... the pony rims from American Muscle are +22mm offset... I would assume the stock pony would be similar... so push them in another 7mm in.... and only a 7" width, not 8"

I would imagine them fitting okay... also note the 93 Cobra ran a +40.9mm offset and 7.5" width
Offset = 1.61" or 40.9mm
Backspace = 5.36"
Bolt Pattern = 4 X 4.25"



My current set up (not pictured above) is 98 axles, and rotors from breeze automotive (TC rotor, re-drilled for 5 lug) and then took them to the machine shop to have the rotor hat enlarged about .08"...

I had an 89 GT with the TC rear axle and stock turbine wheels - no problems with stock size tires.
