As some know, I just got my cat back to the house after sitting in a garage for 16 years.
Obviously, I need new tires and am not partrial to hubcabs.

I'm on a severe budget so new rims are out of the question.
I've been searching Craigs List and there are many many 5x4.5 options out there in various price ranges. I'm hoping to find a set with decent tread left on a budget rim I can live with for awhile.

What are vehicles make good donors for nice looking rims for our cars. I do like the period correct look of ET -slots or Crager SS, but as mentioned, the budget :(

Do newer Mustang rims work (I like the Bullit rims)? Other Ford rims? Other manufacturers? Owning the GM station wagons, I've learned all about how important backspacing is (the car has a rear skirt), but I'm new to the Cougar game and trying to ramp up here.

thanks in advance.
