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.
Ron, those wheels look great. I like the way you matched the color of the centers to the color of the DeTomaso script on the rocker panels. What sizes of wheels and tires did you use?
The rear wheels are 17"X 12" with 315/35 Nitto NT05 tires and the fronts are 17" X 8.5" with 235/40 NT05s.

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
