  1. Factory Five Roadsters
    I'm in the MkIV a few weeks now. got the front end set up (minus the steering rack because its on Backorder), waiting for my rear upper, lower, and toe arms, which are also BO. Therefore, i've used my time to figure out which wheel/tire set up i'm looking out. Couple issues if anyone can...
  2. Factory Five Roadsters
    Good afternoon, I like the "Halibrand" style wheels, but I'm not a huge fan of the style FFR offers. I prefer the American Racing VN427 set. Preferably the polished finished. The front, I'm not too worried about. 15x8 with a 4.5" BS with a 0mm Offset. However, the rear is where I'm...

    like it says - do you run: Staggered setup (wider in back) Square setup (same size all around and rotate for even wear)

  7. Tire & Wheel Forum
    I am not an expert on wheel fitment and need help figuring this out (yes I searched and was even more confused trying to calculate the offset). I've got an F5R Mark IV Roadster with an IRS and Mike Forte's 6/4 piston Wilwood Brakes. I have a set of FFR supplied 17"staggered Halibrands but I...
  8. Factory Five Roadsters
    Hello, I'm pretty new to this forum, and I apologize if this has already been covered previously...although I couldn't really find my answer yet. I'm planning on having 15'' wheels with a 87-93 rear end and 11.65'' disc brakes for my roadster. As you know, it is becoming very difficult to...
  9. Factory Five Roadsters
    Can I get some feedback on how many of you out there are waiting on roadster hallibrand wheels and how long you have been waiting. I have been waiting since March. That's way longer 6-8 weeks. No communication from FFR unless I call or email. Last I heard from Eddie. Probably after the first...

  12. Ford Modular Engine Roadster Builds
    If I want to keep the disk brakes from a later model build (03-04 donor), do I have to go to 17" wheels or will 15" wheels fit? My gut feeling is that the bigger performance brakes from Cobra and Mach I models are 17" only.
  13. Factory Five '33 Hot Rod Forum by E/T Wheels
    Wheels and tires MAKE a hotrod! The attitude is in the wheels, tires and rake. And a hotrod needs attitude. I am getting ready to buy rubber and wondering how tall anyone has gone without fenders. Oh yeah, real hot rods don't have fenders. I'd like to see some photos of different tire/wheel...

    I find out one of my Yoko Avids has gone flat (probably a small puncture, but no reason to take a chance with older tires anyway), then I find out that they don't make Yokos anymore in my size so I have to get a new set at some point anyway, then I find out that most of the local tire shops are...
