Hey guys!
Looking at buying the wheels off this junker: http://worcester.craigslist.org/pts/3609486722.html.

Any idea if they'll directly bolt on or if I'll need spacers and if so what should I buy.

Sorry about the lack of info, all I know is what is in the ad.

Alex

I honestly don't know. I'm assuming they are. I sent the seller a text but no response yet.

i ran 18x9 cobra r wheels on my 03 last summer. they bolt up but the offset is a little too low for 03+ cars. the offset is +24 and they will stick out about an inch past the fender in the front, just about flush in the rear (maybe just a hair past). This is all assuming they are 5 lug. I'm not up on my mustang trivia, but i believe the stang in that ad could have 4 or 5 lugs.

anyway, here's what they'll look like

I thought that all foxbody mustangs had 4 bolt rims, but I'm probably wrong.

It wouldn't look too bad offset wise
but where P71 sit higher it would have a noticeable gap
between the rubber and the fender.

They do unless you do a 5 lug swap. Here's my buddy Mikes car with bullitts. (two of them came off my car when I went deep dish)

Very nice 5.0. Simple and understated. Rims are just right.
