Help with a potential buy!

I have the opportunity to buy a set of 4 nearly new deep dish wheels from a local seller. He bought them from AM. He says they are all 10.5 inch wheels. And he has 1 inch spacers for the rears that will be included with price. Although I don't think I like the idea of spacers. My question is will having 10.5 inch wheels in the front cause any issues for me?

I have a 2004 GT and he said he had them on his 2001 GT

I've heard people having issues with rubbing on 10's. I personally wouldn't stick a 10.5 up front for a couple reasons. No way in hell I'd run spacers on a 10+" wheel on a new edge. See if he will let you throw them on to test the fitment.

Ok so after talking to the guy. He has NEVER owned a mustang. Bought them from a guy for a good price to resell and just wants rid of them after a few years. And after doing some research I'm guessing he didn't measure them correctly and he has 9inch in the front and 10.5 for rear. Because they never made a 11.5 for rear. I'd have to see them I guess.

The size should be engraved on the back of the rim.

10.5's square will not work on the new edge cars. Offer him a fair price for 2 of them for the rear of your car. Then he can sell the other two as a set.

You will not need wheel spacers for 10.5" wheels. Depending on the brand of tire you choose they will either sit flush or slightly poke.

That's what I thought.. When he said wheel spacers It threw me off. Maybe I'll ask to send pics of the sizes engraved on them. If that's the case only 2 it is..

Just for your reference I have 17x10.5" bullitts with 315/35 Sumitomo HTR's on my 03 v6 car and they are almost flush. The Sumi's are notorious for running narrow.

My Mach 1 is running 18x10.5" Rovos Durbans with 295/35 Nitto NT05's and they tuck about 5/16" of an inch. Perfect imo. Typically Nittos run narrow but I think the NT05's are about average. Definitely not BFG or Goodyear wide.

Neither have or need spacers.
