There needs the aftermarket to pick them up before brad can have them made in the mn12 offset and bolt pattern.

You could always hub swap and order the wheels from Ford Racing

Yea I cant afford to have a cast built...

I would however make a correction to your Front wheel offset. 38MM is just too close to the control arm. It will clear but it leaves no allowance for bushing or bearing failures. So any small failure would scrub your wheel. I would not come inside anymore than 36MM with a 9" wide wheel on the front.

I hope that cast comes available. I would build it.

Triple, check these out:

Just do the hubswap and run these. They're a decent offset for our cars, shouldn't be a problem.

+30MM offset on a 9" wheel is gonna look funny on the front IMO...

How so? I have 26mm offset with a 9" wheel and it only sits out around 4mm, 30 is perfect

IMO = In My Opinion...After all the guy specifically asked me a quick question so apparently my opinion might mean something to him...
