Second rule of mini-van ownership:

2. Do NOT talk about owning the mini-van!!

Third rule of minivan ownership: if this is your first minivan, you have to drive us all around in it...

Just FYI, Windstars were 5 on 108 mm pattern (5 on 4.25"), shared with 86-07 Taurus, Sable, 89-97 T-Bird and Cougar, some Volvos, Lincoln LS and Jaguar S-Type. There are some decent wheels available in that pattern, but not a huge selection.


cheers
