Default P71 interceptor wheels

Has anyone installed these wheels on a 69 fairlane or galaxy ? I like the look but don't have any specs on back spacing. Just wasn't sure if I they would look right or fit correctly. I'm looking at the 17" P71 Crown Vic wheels.

Don't know the specs, but when I worked for Ford, we worked on quite a few Crown Vic cop cars. Can't remember which year, but they went from a standard "reverse" type offset to a much more "positive" one-almost as little offset as a front drive car, wheels were very "flat" looking. I believe it was 03-04 or so, but not 100% sure. So just be careful which year you get your wheels from. I know not the exact info you were looking for, but hopefully this helps.

17" on a P71 CV should be 06 or later. 03 or later on all other "civi" Panther cars.

You will need 1.5" hub centric spacers to get them out from under the car if 15" wheels from an 80s or 90s Crown Vic would look right on your car.

Yep, did a little google search, and 17s came out in 06, so they're going to be the flat looking wheels, which I don't believe is the look you're going for....Like Larry said, you're going to need some spacers for sure to get them pushed out where they'll look like they fit correctly.
