wheel Backspacing change
Before and after between the Liberty wheels with 5.5'' of backspacing and the Towncar wheels with either 4 or 4.5'' of backspacing.

The Jeep looks ... right ... now.

Looks bigger from all angles too.

So you mounted your mud tires on the Lincoln wheels?

Yup. When I went to the junkyard where were 3 or 4 Crown Vics with the steel wheels I really wanted ... but it's cheaper to buy one alloy that matches that 5 new steel.

Wish I could have had the steel. Sad

The alloys are also quite a bit lighter than the Liberty wheels. The treadwrights are still ridiculously heavy for what they are because (1) recap (2) load range e tire (3) commercial truck tire carcass.

I'm sure I just cut my wheel bearing life in half, too.
