classic vs modern bolt patterns and offsets

just a question, but are all mustang bolt patterns and offsets the same?

when project eleanor gets ready for new shoes, i want to get some of the gt500 clone rims like these, but those are meant for a 65-73. i looked on bolt patterns, and from what i understand, all stangs (unless the 4 lugs), use 5x114.3 bolt pattern, but i cant find any info on offsets.

also, do the 05's use the same bolt pattern and whats their offsets? im pretty sure they do but just to be 100% sure.

5lug classics use the same 5x4.5 bolt pattern yes, but I would check into the offsets because for the fact that almost all classics stock had very skinny wheels and not very big wheel wells the offsets could be off, and the 05 has a different offset then the 94-04.

get the offset and backspacing for the 99-04 gt rims (17x9 and 17x8 for instance) as well as any other size you want. They seem to be what is needed. My 95 oem Cobra R's were 5.95 backspacing, my 03 cobras are 6.11 i believe.
