Default Q: Did the ARE 5 spoke come on any 1988's?

I have seen a few 1988's with the ARE 5 spoke wheels. Are they correct? How can you tell what wheel originally came on a 1988?

Yes. Late production 1988s have 5 spoke ARE wheels.

July - September 1988. Maybe parts of June. 5-spokes appear after the the move to Hunter Ave, after the updated front bumper trim piece is introduced, and after the special build SSP coupes.

I have 88-704 built in September 1988 and bought it off the showroom floor from Galleria Ford. It came with grey basket weaves.

What is the difference in the front bumper trim piece between early and late 1988s?

Early bumper piece is smooth, later have an indention across the center to match the Ford trim on the car.
