If you have a hub swap or some adapters, they'd bolt up. I dont know for sure about rubbing... IIRC the MN12 doesnt like deep dishes, but i could be wrong..

+1 on Nice looking though

As already mentioned and as you may have already know you would need a hubswap.

With respect to the width/offset specs of the wheels the fit would be a total disaster hanging way out of the fender lines but hey....Some guys run like that...

I am doing the hub swap, putting bigger brakes.. What worries me is the rubbing.. I was looking for 17", but there aren't any with the deep dish..

My car is nto and will nto be lowered. His tires stick that far out due to the adapters, so they would stick that far out... I think...

I would NOT suggest running that wheel. I have the hub swap as well with 17x9 +24mm offset wheels. They have a frontspacing of 4.06" which leaves them sticking out of the rear about 12mm (1/2") or so. This looks fine from the front of the car but from the rear.....well some like it and most don't. The wheels that you are looking at have a frontspacing of 4.64" which give you an additional 16.25mm or a total of 28-29mm (>1") that would stick out. This would definitely look Dukes of Hazzard-ish. You really need about +45mm of offset to be able to run that 10" wide wheel and make it look good. Hope that helps.


My math:

9" wheel = 10" total width/2 = 5"- 0.94"(24mm) = 4.06" Frontspacing

10" wheel = 11" total width/2 = 5.5" - 0.86"(22mm) = 4.64" Frontspacing

Same kind of deal. They look okay on the REAR with a 255 width tire. They still stick out a little bit too much on the front for my taste. If you had 5-6mm milled off then they would look more acceptable. 95LX had some milled off of his 2003 Cobra wheels so you could look up his thread for that.

Here's 03 10th anniversary cobra wheels with 4mm milled off the hub to increase the backspacing. They fit just fine.

If I do my math right, I do believe that the wheels on my car have a 6.3" backspace after the 4mm was removed. They have 6.12 backspacing stock which is about a 28mm offset. After being machined this would bring it to a 32mm offset for a 17x9 wheel. Being as they are 9" wide, this would put the wheel approximately 3" out from the hub. Hope this helps.

The stock 10th anniversary wheel is a +28mm offset and has a 6.12" backspacing. The wheel with 4mm shaved would be a +32mm offset with a 6.25" backspacing and would have a 3.75" frontspacing. The wheels that Tx_Cat is looking at can't be shaved quite that much but should be able to be cut down enough to make them look acceptable (at least the 9" wide versions).

How about a FR500 style wheel in 18x9 with a 30mm offset?
I know that it's not a 17x9, but I would think that it would work pretty good.

Good find! I hadn't seen replica FR500 wheels for the '05-08 Mustangs. Those would work pretty well. The 18x10 is real close to working out. If it had about 5mm shaved off then it would work perfect in the rear.

Russel, that 18x10 would probly work perfectly... I think a +45 is too much for an 18" wheel, it'll hit the bar iirc. Once you get out to 19" or 20" then you can add some offset as the interior barrell will clear.

I forgot about that, so that was a good catch. I think even +40mm is very tight. If the bar is the problem then a larger diameter wheel shouldn't make any difference since the wheel is parallel to the bar. The reason that I am going with 19s is that clearance issue though.

On the rear, the bar heads inward slightly before it makes the big angle ... so a larger barrel wheel will give a bit more clearance. My 19x10" rears are +40, they tuck in nice, and have at least 1/2" of space to the stab. bar.
