06 GT Wheels on my 02 V6

Looking at checking out these wheels this week to replace my 16" V6 wheels to some 17" 06 GT bullit style wheels.

Wheels/tires

Will the wheels fit my car even if they look sunk in? If i need some back spacers what would you recommend?

Thanks

They are a different offset than our cars, so they will probably look sunk in as you said.

Hmm I bet the guy would at least let me mount one to see how they look. If I could run them for now and look into spacers later that would be fine.

Spacers are not bad to run. I've used them in the past. Not a bad Idea if u want the wide tire look without buyin the wides. But anyways to answer the question I don't mind using spacers

Would something like these do the trick?

1 2" inch Thick Wheel Spacers 5x4 5 5x114 3 Set of 2 Heavy Duty Billet | eBay

Or should I get some hub centric bolt on ones. Not looking for any thing to aggressive and this is just a daily driver not a track car or anything.

Yikes! Don't wanna risk that. Think I will ask they guy to just let me mount one and if doesnt look good pass on the deal. Not worth ruining my car.

I got mine from Titan wheel accessories. $60 and they are great! 1.5" but since you said those new tires would sink In deeper than the ones you have now then get 2"

Honestly I think I am going to regret not getting all black wheels even though it will be few extra hundred bucks.

But can't decide between these to wheels:
Black Saleen Style Mustang Wheel 17x9 (94-04 All) 28384 - Free Shipping!
Solid Black Bullitt Wheels (2010-2013) at AmericanMuscle.com - Free Shipping!

and then probably just the cheap tires. Should fit either wheel:
Sumitomo High Performance HTR Z II Tire (245/45-17) 5517734 - Free Shipping!

I would prefer 18"s or 19"s but the tires really shoot up in price and thinking about future tires purchases as well. That would get expensive. Both of these kits come out to about $875. I should hear back on my tax returns in the next day or two. If its good I might pull the trigger. Would be a nice birthday present for myself (its on saturday).

Yeah I agree. Just waiting to hear back from my mom on my taxes. She took my stuff in to her tax lady

Those tires I listed will work right? They weren't listed as compatible tires but I am pretty sure they are the right size.

I'd go 275 on 9 inch or 255.

yeah next year I will probably do them myself. This past year was crazy though. 3 different job. One where I was a private contractor (company I am with now was contract to hire, was officially hired Jan. 1st). Plus last semester of college. Figured I would be better off letting someone take care of all that ha.

Worth spending the extra $50 bucks to jump from 245 to 255? I assume it will only look better, no other benefits?
