Need help with wheel size with my mustang?

I found these 18inch set of wheels with 18x9 and 18x10 and everything seems to be good except for the offset they wheels offset is 22 but the offset reccomend for my mustang is offset of 35-40 so if i were to buy the wheels with 22 offset would that be a problem????

Yes. That probably won't clear brakes without a huge spacer. Get wheels with the correct offset

Actually a lesser offset pushes the wheel/tire further outboard, not inboard. Also, it's more the design of the wheel spokes that clears or don't clear big brake calipers. But I don't think we are talking big brakes.
The 22mm vs. say a 35mm offset only amounts to the wheel assembly moving outbound by 1/2". Chances are you'd just be looking at the wheel possibly sticking out from the fender a bit.

Take a look at this site to get a better idea of what happens when sizes change. Typically it's used to check for clearance compared to an existing setup.

Rim & Tire Size Calculator. Custom Offsets - Wheel-Size.com

Moving the wheel outboard by a 1/2" by way of the offset would have a similar load effect on the wheel bearings as would putting in 1/2" spacers. Some don't recommend that much for the front wheels.

Right. My bad wasn't paying attention. However I still think 22 offset will fit like crap and quite possibly rub the fender. I'm not sure what year mustang OP has, but on a 10-14 the factory 9" wheels are typically around 42 offset. The 20mm difference is a little more than 3/4 of an inch.

Agree...I certainty would want to look into that very closely before getting 22mm offsets.
