I do not recommended, but if you must, answer below.
To fit the 2013 wheels on your 2003 Mustang, you would need 1-inch wheel spacers. Additionally, you will need to run a 26" tall tire instead of the 2013 stock 27.7" tall tire, otherwise you will have rubbing on the front when turning.
Now let's quickly cover the types of spacers:
-slip on (need longer wheel studs over 1/4"
-slip on with hubs
-bolt on with hubs
If you are going to install thick wheel spacers, then I highly recommend bolt-on spacers with hubs. The hub allows each wheel to remain hub centric compared to lug centric. Having the wheel centered by hub helps to prevent wobble/shake issues, especially when used on the front of the older Mustangs not designed for high offset wheels.
Do a quick Google search for, 1" wheel spacer mustang
, and review all the types in the links. You will see all four types I mentioned above, and as usual, the best type costs the most.
