Question 01-04 wheels on a 2005??

Can someone please tell me if a set of deep dish 01-04 bullitts will fit okay on a 2005 Mustang??

I've just purchased a used set.......the fronts are 18x9's and the rears are 18x10's. I tried both the 18x9 and the 18x10 on the rear and they fit on there okay and did not rub anywhere (cleared the caliper and suspension parts), but I'm not sure if its safe or if the wheels are just not meant to be run on the 2005-09's??? The 18x9's seemed to be a better fit, tucked up in the fender, however, the 18x10's did extend out past the fender about an inch!!


HELP??????


PS: Anybody running this setup and have pics???? Post please!!

I think you would be fine with a 18x9 in the back

If so, then I may just sell the 18x10's to somebody wanting to do a staggered look! Might go with 255/40/18's in the front on the 18x8.5's.
