Will these fit?

http://www.buyfordracing.com/shop/pr...=605cPath=2_24

Yes, I know I'll need the hub swap, I don't have time to look as to which backspacing fits....but will these work?

Yes, I hate my Lincoln. Ask me about it sometime.

They would tuck under the back, but on the front they are going to rub on the spindles without some small spacers. Most backspacing that will clear the front is about 6.5".

They'll look like arse on the back because they're too far under, and won't fit at all on the front without spacers ...

Hey, look, something shiny!

Probably just about any 05+ mustang wheel that is 9" wide will fit. Look for wheels with the backspacing that Ed mentioned or 9" wheels with 36-38mm offset. Myself and many others here run them on the fronts. Or you can just skip the hub swap and get a set of mustang style wheels from the custom wheel shop here.

What about something like this:

http://www.cruizinconceptswholesale....TAL95RSTYLEWTP

They have a staggered package with 18x9 +36 and 18x10 +42, made for S197 Mustangs, great offsets for MN-12 as well. Or you could just do 9" at all corners if you want to be able to rotate.

That is the setup I bought from cruizinconcepts. Good place to deal with.

Good price on those wheels you posted also.

Or you could go to thecustomwheelshop.com and get bullits there with the staggered fitment. 18x9's for the front and 18x10's for the rear. They'll be drilled with the proper backspacing and bolt pattern eliminating the need to do a hub swap... unless you're also gonna do the big brake packages for the mustangs.

My wheels are from the custom wheel shop and they fit perfectly. I have the '03 cobra replicas 17x9's all the way around
