2002 GT wheels on 2008 V6

I have a 1997 V6 with 2002 GT wheels. I bought my wife a 2008 while home from Iraq last Nov. I am planning to purchase Bullitt wheels for the 97 and want to know if the 02 stock wheels with 245/45/17 tires will fit on the 08. I just put new tires on the wheels and the 08 is due for new shoes. I know the back spacing is different just don't know how much.

Re: 2002 GT wheels on 2008 V6

I want to say that they should fit without issue. I've seen a few S197 mustangs with 99-04 rims on. Your best bet is to PM Hottcobra, he has a S197 GT with 03 cobra rims...he could tell you if there's any issues.

I put 03 cobra rims on my friends 08 gt, they do and will stick out more but its not that bad they should look and fit fine.
