im about 75% sure it would help. from what I recall the sn95 mustangs need spacers to make the offset of the 05-09 wheels fit right

this would be the ideal kit needed but you could get away cheaper somewhere im sure

Mustang 13mm Wheel Spacer Kit Fits 05-09 Wheels to 94-04 Mustangs

Wheels have different offset that's why you rub. Get appropriate wheels for you're model and the rubbing issue will go away

that is a question beyond me lol I would think so. I think that the spacer kit puts the wheels to where they would sit with original style wheels. if that's the case then I don't see a problem lowering it!

I thought about that. But don't have all that time . And I like the rims I have . I was just hoping a tire change would fix the rubbing .

Doubt it, unless it's a drastic change, also I didn't realize u had the wrong offset for your car, that's the problem lol

If its rubbing on the rim then no. Go ahead and jack you're car from the front, then turn the wheel all the way. Check for how much clearence you need and get a spacer if you want to keep the wheels

Get a smaller tire then. If it only rubs on the fender that should do the trick
