Kitty, I know where a set of those are but I dont think you want to pay for them. There pretty hard to find and worth some pretty good money. mm

This is a picture of one I lost the bid on Ebay.
It went for $62. Is that expensive or cheap?

It took 9 months for the body shop to find me 2 when mine got wrecked....they are rare, I know.

No, I dont think thats way out of line if you needed one. How many do you really need? I know a guy with a Mustang junk yard who may have one and if he does I may be able to get it reasonable. I maynot be getting over there for a while though.

My brother has a complete set that appear to have never been used complete with center caps and trim rings but needless to say he wouldnt break up a set. I figure his set should be worth a easy $500-$600. mm

Does your brother want to sell them?
I'd love to get a set in new or near new condition.
I also, would like to get a spare since the one I have doesn't match. Should it match?

Kitty, I can check with him and find out for you! As far as the spare goes I'm not sure if there supposed to match the optional wheels on the car or not. I wouldnt think it matters especially if you have the spare tire cover on it anyway. mm

Hi Kitty. If your car came with them from the factory, you would have 5. My 67 has all 5 ss wheels. When I bought wheels, I always got 5 ( it always bugs the tire guys, they stock in sets of 4). But it's your choice. Personally I like opening the trunk and seeing a nice ss wheel inside...

My Cougar wheels are 14's.
The second picture of the 5 slot wheels are 15's.
I didn't know they made 14 AND 15's for Cougar.
My Eldorado has 16's:rolleyes:

So, it doesn't matter if I put on 14's or 15's??!!:confused:

My car is 14's.

Did they make both sizes for 71+?
