« on: September 01, 2012, 10:33:06 PM »
What is the bolt pattern for Pinto wheels and what are the largest tires that will fit without making any modifications?  Thanks!

Thanks, and another question - would 14" or 15" rims and tires fit without modifications to the car?

I left that for the guys who have maxed out the tire sizes. I have had 14 & 15's on Pintos but only a max of 225 width tires. I have read a 295 fits though.

I have Pony wheels on mine off a 91 GT Mustang, all four bolt 79-94 Mustang wheels should fit. They are 16 X 7 and bolted right on with 205/50/16s and would take bigger tires with half inch wheel spacers, especially in the back.
