1979 Wheels & Tires

Converting 1979 Mustang Wheels from 4-Lug to 5-Lug

Updating your Mustang’s wheels is one of the easiest ways to enhance and update its overall appearance. In most cases, you can simply unbolt your old wheels and bolt on your new ones. The stock wheel size on the 1979 Mustang ranged from 13” - 14” with a 4-lug pattern. Models with the TRX suspension were sized 390 mm, or about 15.35”. Styles and options are somewhat limited in this 4-lug pattern, and as a result, many Mustang owners opt to convert their 4-lug setup to a 5-lug.

This can be accomplished with a conversion kit that includes 28-spline 5-lug rear axles with drums and 5-lug front rotors. However, for better braking, consider upgrading to disc brakes all around, which will improve stopping power.
