Some of you saw my post on Friday about a set of Magnum 500’s I found on Craigslist for the Montego!

Well, Possible is now in strike through, because I bought them. Stupid Kinja won’t let me do strikethrough in the title... I BOUGHT THEM THOUGH!

I got the guy down to $100 for a set of 4 Magnum 500’s. 2 are 14x5.5 for the front and the other 2 are 14x7 for the rear.

I know some of you expressed concern about them not being 15’s so I could fit disc brake upgrades in the future, but giving they only cost 100 bucks, it’s worth it. Front suspension kits cost more than the whole car cost me so that’s a long way down the road (If it ever happens).

The guy also threw in an original “space saver” spare wheel/tire. I don’t really have much interest in this, but it was included.

Here’s some pics of them now that I got them home, they look better than the original pictures I saw on Craigslist. This guy could have sold them for more if he took better pics of them.

Basically, the chrome on them is practically flawless. The black paint obviously needs to be re-done. Definitely better than I expected and now I can save up for a while for some new tires to wrap around them!

Also if anyone knows anything about these codes and could offer some insight that would be great. I don’t care if they are original 1968 Ford rims, at $25 a wheel who cares if they’re aftermarket? Just want to know what I have.
