Dorman 939-131 Steel Wheel
I have the Dorman 939-131 steel wheels mounted with Snow Tires .     This wheel fits my 99 Grand Marquis but they say it won't fit on my 06 Grand Marquis . is it the center that is different ,or is it just the offset and is there any safe way to mount this wheel on my 06 . Thanks in advance !

It will mount and sit just outside the fender. It's just the offset that's different.

That's what I thought , I'll mount them up and see if I can live with it .
Just for shits & giggles will a 17 " wheel from a 06 P71 fit the 06 w/16" wheel.
Dang that seems like an idiot question . Thanks Tom !!

Yes, there was no physical reason for the change to 17" wheels for 2006 and other models(Grand Marquis) with the same mechanical hardware(brakes and suspension) still used 16" wheels. Any wheels found stock on any 2003-2011 panther will fit any other 2003-2011 panther that has not been modified.

These wheels are specifically for my 99 MGM ,and here they are on my 06 MGM .
   
   
   

I have been able to get the tires to rub one time but I was so far outside of the way I normally drive that it is not a problem . I think they look good and fill the wheel wells nicely .

RE: Dorman 939-131 Steel Wheel
This is that same wheel and tire combination on the 99 Merc
   
   
   

Just trying to document this and finish this thread ,so maybe it can help somebody in the future .

I would say the stock 225/60-16 All Season tires I run in the non winter months are not as wide as these Avalanche snow tires and would probably look funny if mounted on the 06 (on the 99 rims) because they would set just outside the fenders .
