LTD, Merc Marquis, Crown Victoria, Lincoln - most any of the big Fords that use the space saver. Make sure the bolt pattern is the same.

Use the ones that look closer like a regular rim. There are some that the center is bowed out that there may be a problem .

Is the bolt pattern 5. X 4.5"? I wrote down from somewhere that number but I don't know how to measure it. Thanks

I haven't used a spare in years. Just a can of slime.

Most Fords used the 4.5 bolt patter. Just be sure you don't pick up an oddball one.

Thanks all. That's what I needed to know. I now have a doughnut AND a can of Fix-A-Flat. Belt and suspenders, eh?
Best regards,
Rick
