Reproduction 15x8 chrome styled steel wheel for your Mercury Cougar. Gorgeous reproduction of the original 1968 Mercury styled steel wheel. Correct in every way except that the outer band is welded on instead of riveted to the center section. This wheel has a total width of 7", backspacing is 4" and the center hole is 1-13/16". The 1967 14x5.5" is not reproduced and most likely never will be due to the fact that the larger openings in between the spokes were very prone to cracking and the contour of the wheel will not allow it to be used with most after-market disc brakes or the OEM disc brakes used from 1968-73. All of the wheels on this page will work with any OEM 1967-73 front disc brake configuration. If you ever see these wheels advertised for less we would like to hear about it!
NOTE! These wheels are intended to be balanced with a lugcentric adapter. They will not balance with a traditional cone spacer on the tire spin balancer. Many tire shops do not deal with classics and do not have the right attachment. If you attempt to balance these wheels without the correct adapter they will resemble a bent wheel.
Center caps and lug nuts are sold separately.
