will 17x8 4.5 backspace fit on 1997 mustang?

Found a set of foose nitrous 17x8 5x4.5 bolt pattern, 4.5" backspace wheels, will they fit 1997 mustang? According to the faq on this site, need 3" frontspace, but this would be 3.5".
Tires are 245/45/17. Should I just try and see if they rub or is it known this is a no-go?
Guy had them on a '68 mustang.
