Yeah, another new guy with a wheel/tire question
I'm a Mustang guy, so I'll be the first to admit I have no clue what's going on with these cars as far as what fits and what won't.
Backstory: My dad picked up a 96(?) S420 about a year ago for like $3k. It's only got about 40k on it, so that's good, right? Apparently an even older guy used it as his "Florida home" vehicle.
He snagged a set of wheels with shredded tires from a neighbor with the following written on the back:
Ft: 8.5JX18H2 ET35
Rr: 9.5JX18H2 ET35
Now he's asking me what tires would fit the car. Google keeps bringing me to y'alls page and wheel thread, and a week later, I haven't found the right answer yet. I do know the shredded 205s and 215/40s that were on there aren't right.
Hell based on the tiny tires, I don't even know if the WHEELS will fit on this thing.
So yeah...a bit of help please?
Thanks in advance.
