Question Wheel Question(s)????

I have a question for all the knowledgeable people on this forum. My buddy has a set of Saleen Wheels (not the standard Saleen 5 star but more of a 5 star bullett style) which are 18X9 with 6.5" backspacing (which is about 32mm if im correct). Obviously they are 5 on 4.5 whereas my 96 bird is 5 on 4.25 still. My questions are:

1. will these work with a spacer/adapter
2. where might i find a spacer adapter for 5 on 4.25 to 5 on 4.5
3. would it be more worth converting the entire car to mustang hubs
4. Am i better off not doing it.

I am getting these for practically nothing with brand new pirelli P-zeros on them so i would love to find out if i can actually fit these and as cheaply as possible for now.

DO NOT USE ADAPTERS! hub swap is the only right way to do it.

Ok but if i do the hub conversion, will those wheels work?
Also i noticed in your signature you already did the hub swap, how much did it cost you? (if you dont mind me asking)
