Fitting 295/45/17 MT Drag Radials

The 89-97 Thunderbirds use a unique suspension and bolt pattern. The back space, or off set is closer to that of a front wheel drive car, and the bolt pattern is 4 1/4 x 5, instead of the normal 4 1/2 x 5. This causes problems when you need to install wide wheels, especial for drag racing.

I decided I would use 295/45/17 MT Drag Radials, which work very well with 9 inch wide wheels.

These 295-45-17 MT will go on soon
