Correct, especially with 3 piece wheels.

That's groovy that you did that Larry. Thank You. Please post what you find out. I for one am interested.
My personal favorite aftermarket wheels for the Pantera are Halibrand style.

I see Factory Five has 18" wheels that I think would look really nice. Based on George's guidance in Stick #8 it looks like they would fit. They may require 1/4" spacers as the offsets are more than what is recommended.

Front: 18x9 w/6" backspace (24mm Offset)
Rear: 18x11 w/6.46" backspace (12mm Offset)
Wheel Lug Pattern: Ford style 5 lug x 4.5" bolt circle

Factory Five recommends 255/35/18 front and 315/30/18 rear tires for their roadster application. I think 245/35/18 front and 285/40/18 might work better for the Pantera to get that 2" diameter difference George talks about.

Advan GT Wheels: 1 piece forged - VERY light weight.

18" x 9.0" - 25mm offset
19" x 10-1/2" - 15mm offset

The Pantera in the photo has outboard mounted brake hats, so the effective offsets are 19mm and 9mm.

Tires: 225/40-18 front / 285/40-19 rear

Wheels are available from Mackin Industries in Southern California
