on my 90 lx i swtched to 5 lug via mark vII rotors. now i am trying to find a compact spare that will fit the front. i tried a aerostar spare and it hit the caliper, tried a lincoln town car and the center hole is too small. ii cannot find any 94 or 95's or mark vII in the salvage yards so that is out of the question. i need help i am driving about 30 miles to the salvage yard! they wont let you work on cars in lot so i have to bring them home to try them out. this trial and error crap is getting old any suggestions?

Hi,
Since the rim bolt pattern is 4 1/2 I gave it some thought.

Best bet would be is to find a 15 inch rim and put the smallest 60 series tire you can find.

Or maybe try and call theses guys.

o.k. guys if anyone else is interested here is what will work

1. lincoln mark series 86-92 16"
2. crown victoria 86-90 16"
3. grand marquis 86-90 16"
4. lincoln continental 86-87 16"
5. lincoln town car 86-87 16"

after getting this info from another helpful man from the salvage yard i walked right to a lincoln continental armed with several measurements (took steves advice
) and bam it was the right one. i do not know if the 15" series of these tires will fit (would be close to caliper) but i think they will clear. hopefully this will help someone else out in the future. Jeff
