Fr500 rims

Found a set of 4 18x9 fr500 on kijiji for a killer price, they were off a 2007 mustang, will they fit a 1996 mustang? I've done some research and I've found that it will and it won't fit so I don't know. A chart said it did but american muscle said they won't fit.

I believe they will fit but the offsets are different so the 05 and up wheels will tuck in more

Venomouz is correct. The wheel will bolt onto the car with no problem, but the 05+ Mustangs have a different offset, compared to the previous years. So, the wheel will most likely be a few millimeters closer and or farther away from the hub, causing the wheel to be tucked in or pocked out a little bit!

I hope this helps. Let me know if you have any further questions!
