Centerbore HAS to be 2.780", nothing else. That is the centerbore of all the 94-04 OEM wheels.
1.16" offset (approx 29.5mm)
This looks like the sizes we want. I am going on you knowledge here. As far as the deposit, we are so close to 30 sets that the deposit might be small. At any rate, I will pm him this info and ask what to do next. I am ready to do this deal, I hope everyone here is too. Once I post the info, we need to all respond back to this forum with the amount/date/method we paid. That way we all are covered here. Remember. ~$500 a set, so the deposit might be close to if not less then that. So, at any rate, use plastic, and don't be a jerk.

Again, these will be a satin finish, anyone who wants chrome will have to do it on there own, satin finish....

I joined this forum to get in on this deal. When the repro '93 Cobra wheels came out, I called Wheel Replicas in Texas, and after a few calls, I was able to speak to the owner. He told me the same thing then, at least 30 sets, paid for, before they could change the center cast and do a five lug version.

My '93 Cobra has the Motorsport M-2300K kit, has for ten years now, and runs the old Motorsport '95 Cobra Rs with the Fox-specific 6.42" BS. I want to go back to a stock look, I don't want to convert my '94-'95 Cobra-spec brakes to four lug, so I bought a set of the 4 lug '93 Cobra replicas and took one to a machinist to get an idea of what it would take to convert them to five lug. Answer: the welding heat to plug the existing holes would soften the centers and possibly make them dangerous, so it really wasn't an option. So there they sit still new in the boxes, I'll probably sell them. It never occurred to me to start off a group buy on this or another forum, but I'm glad someone thought of it.

As mentioned, my car has the Motorsport Cobra brake kit, but the longer SN-95 rear axles have always bothered me and I am planning to swap them for stock-length Fox five lug axles, and make or buy a set of relocator brackets for the calipers. So I'm definitely in, for a Fox with SN-95 front and stock rear track width, in the stock silver finish. I'll drop a deposit any time we need to.

Hate to do this, but I'm going to have to withdraw my committment - unforseen expenses have occurred and I simply can't spare the coin right now. And this is killing me, considering how long I have wanted a set of them... :pain:

I will, however, keep watch on the thread, who knows, things might turn around for me on my end in time to get in on the deal.

Alexandros,

Are you increasing the order with our source guy? because it looks like there are a few more orders trickling in here. Hopefully, the 30 sets will cover us. It doesn't look like Wheel Replicas is going to have to sit on any.

So will these wheels fit the Motorsport M-2300K kit?

Thanks
From what I gather so far,

Front: Yes

Rear: Will stick out too much, so you will have to switch to Fox-length five lug axles (Ranger/Aerostar/Bronco II, or aftermarket) and get a set of available relocator brackets to move the calipers in, then they will work all around. Someone please correct me if I am wrong.

Hi,

On the Mustang the 70.64 centerbore can be done. Be aware though that we have seen Mustangs come through with the tolerances not as precise, thus that is why many replicas do 70.8mm. We can do 70.64, but if someone has one that is 70.7 then it could be difficult to install.

I would check and make sure everyone is signed off on the offset, size and centerbore.

Alexandros - you mail box is full.

Jeffo, I just cleared out my inbox. Sorry I have been busy, I was just assigned to the 3rd District Station House in DC from the academy. At any rate, I try to read through all the threads, and this is what list I can come up with.

Again, this is a pre-order list, not a when they come to market I might buy a set list. Again, serious, if you would like to buy a set, they will be ~$500. If you would like to buy a set it will be ~$500. If you want to be added to the pre-order list, say so, do not BS me, for I will glance right over your posts.

Last time I am going to say this. SERIOUS PREORDER LIST!!!
