Im restoing my 68 cougar and I wanted to get the magnum 500 in a 16 by 8 with a 4.5 inch backspace. Any suggestions on where to get them for a good price. Im also restoring my cougar and just had it painted a few days ago and it looks awesome!!! I will send pictures soon!!! thanks John:D

Johns Classic Cougar can get you the magnums.
I just bought a set of 16 X 7 for my 69 Sports Special.
8" wide is just too wide and tire clearance becomes a problem.
7" is just right.

I heard that 16 by 8 magnum 500 wheels series 52 is the one that is polised aluminum all around. I need a set of four with a 4.5 inch backspace. I hope these size rims will not rub. I heard this is the correct size to get for my 68. let me know the price including center caps and lugnuts. thanks john

Here are the prices for the wheels w/o caps from Don Rush's website. No 16's at all for Ford applications. Also, Magnum 500's are an all steel wheel, there is no aluminum in them.


14 x 6 $135.00
14 x 7 $135.00
15 x 7 $135.00
15 x 8 $145.00
15 x 10 $245.00

Hello Royce,

Billet (All Aluminum) Magnum 500 wheels are available in 17" and 18" diameters. The price for the 15x10 that you listed is rather high. I can sell them for $180 without caps. Stock lugnuts can be applied.

Regards
Rick J

Can you post a picture of an all aluminum one? Your website doesn't have any magnum pics.

Rick-

Where can I find a photo of the 17" Magnum 500's? After my 6000+ mile trip this summer in my Cat, I'll probably be just about ready for a set of tires, and am considering going to 17" wheels.

Thanks...

Hello Barry,

I will see if I can dig a photo up for you, they look exactly like the steel Magnums.

I must warn you, if you know billet wheels they are pricey!

Regards
Rick J
