I recently purchased a set of Ford OEM 06 GT Mustang wheels with the hopes of using them on my 2002 GT. Is there a way to use the wheels by buying some sort of spacers or converters for the lugs? Or am I out of luck with these?

If I remember correctly, they will fit, but the offset is different. So they either stick out too much or there inset. If they are inset spacers will help...

But I could also be 100% wrong.

Ok. Right now I am sitting OEM Bullitts - 17x9's in the front and 17x10's in the back. These are 18x8's. Is that going to make a huge difference? Would you recommend buying spacers to bump them out a little?

I also have a set of Saleen replica rims from American Muscle. 18x9's and 18x10's

Well assuming they fit ok, its just going to be what you like best. You may be a bit more used to a wider look, so you may want spacers. It's all about preference though. The difference shouldn't be anything to crazy.

Thank you for the advice. I hope these fit without any problems. I really like the wheels and I want to use them. If anyone else has input I would like to hear it. Thanks!

Yes you will need spacers to make them fit correctly. they will be sunk in to far and may rub.

Where would I get spacers that would go on the 02 and adapt to the 06 wheels?

any where. the bolt patterns are the same so you just need the correct thickness

yes. but putting a thick wheel spacer on, you could have very little threads to hold on to so i would also suggest putting in longer wheel studs. You would want them to snap off turning a corner

They are summer tires and they were very expensive.

The rims were $570 from AM. The wheels were over $200 each.
So all together I paid about $1400 for everything.
$600 isn't enough. Sorry.
