I am thinking of buying a set of 4 thunderbird rims (the seven spoke slicers) but I don't want the center caps b/c they have the thunderbird emblem on them.

My question is do regular Ford center caps work for these rims? Or are there taurus center caps for them?

Any info would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

yeah they should work, both are 5 lug. I have a pair of studded snows that fit the T-Bird rims if youre interested.

The rims from a Mercury Cougar XR7 5-spokes fit my Taurus. They're a 16" tire and considerably wider, but they fit. I don't see any problems with Thunderbird rims.

I got 97 Tbird SE Rims on my Gen 2. The SE rims from 97 or so dont say T-bird on them so it doesn't look stupid. Dodge recently started using a similar design, this is what they look like:

I have 1995 Thunderbird SC 16x7" wheels on my 1995 Taurus SE. They fit great! I'm running 225/55/16's

No rubbing whatsoever even with the sagging rear springs

I plan on putting a different kind of t-bird rims on my car. :uptosumpn:

In reply to your post, perhaps sho slicer caps would fit? They both are the size of flying saucers...who knows??

I think he means these Wheels:


They originally come in silver.

The caps from my 15" LX wheels were a little bit wider than the holes on these, but I have heard that the SHO caps will fit. However, I think they were referring to the 16" SC wheels that other owners have put on their cars.
