I could be wrong but I THINK ford changed the hub style from 04 to 05. Very vague but I seem to remember reading something about an adpater piece needed to bolt on 05+ rims on our cars. I have never tried, nor do I know anyone who has.

I feel like its harder than just bolting them up though because I never see new edge stangs with newer rims on em.

As I understand it, the offset is different, and it makes the +'05 wheels sit deeper in the wheel well. So they looked more tucked in/sucked in,,whateva. You need spacers to get them to look right. But you can drive on them.

The rims wont work due to offset. Your brake calipers will scrap the rims. You will need to get spacers from American muscle to fit them. But Id say you find a set of rims what will fit you car for same price.

Whenever I bought my GT it had the Bullitts off of an 05? I think. 05-09. There's definitely no spacers and they are not flush with the fender (Can you tell it irritates me?)

I have noticed that if I crank the wheel completely one direction or another it makes a terrible grinding sound. Maybe this is it hitting the caliper like Hawiianbro said? Idk. Any help with this would be really appreciated.



Edit: You can see how far back the wheel sits on the rear compared to the fender.

Best way to check is spin the well and look at the area where the rim and break caliper meet if it hits then thats it and thats not too good. I know some people who have shaved there calipers a little so it wouldnt grind.

Yeah I think the rear irritates me the most after I look at it.

Yeah they sit too far back for my taste. I'm hoping to save up enough cash for 18x9/10 Saleens to really make my GT stand out

Wow... Thank you haha. I noticed there was a little bit or rub but I couldn't figure out what it was from. Looks like I will be adding 1/4" spacers to "To-Get" list

05+ mustang wheels are the same bolt pattern. But you will need a spacer for the front wheels. I fitted 07 wheels on my 03 GT and the front wheels were hitting my calipers so spacers in the front are needed. I recommend spacers all around just so the wheels look more flush.
