Ponys.

Post by nathankershaw » Thu Mar 24, 2011 10:20 am

I just put ponys on mine.
The lug nuts? The XR ones seem to have sloped shoulder and the rims have a lug nuts recess that is a slightly different shape.
Do I need the lug nuts off a mustang?

Yes, the XR uses a 45* seat angle. The Pony's use a 60* like most other non-Euro wheels.

17x8 magnesium wheels? Yeah, those would be in the "killer" catagory! :twisted:
