5 lug Conversion Kit for the 1987 Foxbody GT Will the conversion kit that you offer, work with the FR500 wheels for the Foxbody? Either the 17x9-17x10.5 or the 18x9-18x10, or is there another kit I need to purchase to make these wheels fit my car?

Stephon

  • Unfortunately, the FR500 Wheels in both 17" and 18" will not fit properly with this conversion on a Foxbody. They have fitment and clearance issues both in front and rear. We test fit all our wheels and have listed out the ones that do fit on the product page. If you have any other questions, please don't hesitate to give us a call!

    It's geting harder to find 4 lug rims these days and with a need for new rims I figured it was time to look at a 5 lug conversion on my DD so I could have a better rim selection to choose from . What blessing this kit is. No guess work, everything fits as it should, even the front rotors had the outer bearings pressed in. Quick and easy. Now my new rims look awsome too.

    Multiple fit issues

    This is a comprehensive kit and includes everything you need which is nice. The rear axle swap goes very easy, and the front is also fairly easy although it might require a little more expertise to set bearing to proper fit. Overall the kit installs very nice. I do however, have a couple problems with this kit. First of all no where on this website, nor in the literature it came with (oh yea it didnt come with any) does it say what type of parts these are. I think the axles may have had Aerostar labels on them which will assist if ever replacing the drums. However, none of the front parts had any labels except the bearings. Therefore I have no idea what type of rotors I would ever need to buy to replace these. Secondly, the front rotors are different size dimensions than the stock ones. The middle part of the hub that sticks out around the bearing, as well as the dust cap, stick out too far. I had to grind a significant amount of metal off of the outer edge of the rotor to get my OEM ford Bullitt wheels to fit. Also, I had to smash the dust cap in about 1/2 of an inch to get the center caps of the front wheels to fit on. Just something to keep in to consideration, if I were to do it again I would probably use a different kit but overall this was cheap and easy to install. Maybe different wheels would not have these fit issues, but Im guessing they would.

    Everything I needed in one great package

    I was looking to convert my 4 lug set up to 5 lug so I could use a set of Halibrand Replica Wheels on my Cobra, and after considering a few different options, I saw this conversion kit advertised. After speaking with the great folks at American Muscle I thought I would give it a try. I have to say the kit came with 4everything I needed and made the switch simple. The quality of the components was excellent and there were no surprises with fitment or any need to modify anything else to install the kit. This kit takes the guess work out of trying to figure out what you need, it includes everything you need. I would highly recommend this kit to anyone that is looking for this type of conversion. Another great feature about buying from American Muscle was the free and fast shipping, I ordered my kit at 430 in the afternoon and the next day the parts were at my house!!
