mustang/ focus share wheels

I know its kind of a random piece of info... but in a bind the other day for a spare tire on my 5.0 and some random curiosity... I learned that my 2001 zx3 and my 87' mustang lx 5.0 share the same bolt patern... the wheel arent as wide but its still pretty cool that I can swap rims if i want.. ... just kinda puttin that out there.

Thats some neat info. I just googled it and found out that all mustangs with the 4 lug from 74-93 have that bolt pattern. As to their offset, most 4 lugs ran inbetween a 20 and 25mm offset, so a focus wheel would look way squished on one.
Good spot though.

If they're the 20 to 25 mm offset mentioned there's a good chance the tire would rub on the fender lip....I guess it would depend a lot on the tires width. A skinny tire might fit.
