Re: which size

i wouldnt buy those off of ebay, wheel spacers are something you need to not go cheap on. You dont want to have a wheel fall off and cause you to flip the car 10 times because you wanted to save 50 bucks do you?

There are a few brands that are good, the only ones I know of are at maximummotorsports.com H&r brand~

Re: which size

I am still confused on the purpose of the thread. Do you just want the spaces or do you only have 1 v6 wheel and might be looking into getting more of them?

Re: which size

if all you want is a spacer you can get just about any size you wish, the only problem is if the tires can hit the edge of the fender, usually not a problem until you lower the car. I say anymore than half an inch is the limit~

Re: which size

Save yourself the money you will spend on the spacers and save up for a 10 or 10.5 rear rim set. Of course having the matching front will work too. That way you get the mean look and new rollers too! Just my 2 cents. Could take you a little longer to get the look though.

Re: which size

^ yea and you get to spend like $400 on a single tire to fit that wheel size.
If you go too far out with the spacers, you won't have enough threads for the lug nuts to thread onto.

If we do...then I will go 18's...until then, I am sticking with 17s because I don't want to pay 250 a tire for just 1" more rim when I can get 17s for 149 for the same size, only in 17.

I agree, Course I don't think spacers on a mustang are a good idea unless you absolutely know what you're doing.

Re: which size

wheel spacers are dangerous in high performance applications (Don't go cheap)

Re: which size

I'm pretty sure you can get a wide set of 17s as well to fill in the gaps and spaces. I personally like the look of bigger rims with the dish. I agree with Midnight though, find someone who knows exactly what they are doing or just wait until you need to replace your new tires and go with a rim/tire set. Or you could go the longshorterway and just to burnouts all day and switch the rears to the front and go again. At least then youll get some fun time out of your present rollers!
