Rims

There are rims on kijiji for $250

I don't know the size of the tires but they are 17" rims and they have about 75-80% tread and no curb rash or anything. Good condition. Should I buy them?
The silver ones are the kijiji
And the Black ones I have on now.

The builit rims can get expensive though, I'm not looking to spend too much money, which is why these were an option cause they are cheap. And most builit rims have almost no tread on them unless they are priced at like $900

Got the rims, but ready to move on lol. Found another cheap set. They appear to be off a Shelby, this is what the add says.

Front: 255/35/ZR 20" 9 1/2 wide
Back: 295/30ZR 20" 11 1/2 wide
Bolt pattern 114.5 or 5.45m

Would that fit my 96?

Bolt pattern 114.5 is the one you need to fit, also I'm not sure the rears would fit without a spacer. Maybe someone else knows for sure.

So they wouldn't work on my car? Cause my car is 5x114.3 and the offset is just different?

I've been told before that little bit of a bolt pattern shouldn't matter, between 114.3 and 114.5, but yeah those rear wheels would be pretty wide, they would be rubbing against your rear shocks.

So they will fit? Just put on like 1" tire spacer and I'm set?

20's are way too big for a 96.....for several reasons.

They dont flow with the bodies of anything under 05. They look goofy, and tacky. Also, the 94-98's are already underpowered. When you add that kind of rotational mass you severely effect your handling and performance in very negative ways.

The offset is also different, and spacers on wheels of that size isnt the smartest of ideas. It will just put extra stress on your suspension.

Ah alright, didn't know that, thanks for the heads up. So realistically don't go any bigger than 18? And only by wheels meant for a 98 mustang.

Cause I had realize I bought motegi 18" rims for a great price, but the offset is different so at the back the wheels sit further in towards the car then my other rims. So that's why I'm selling them.

18's look great on the sn95's. The biggest that should ever be used are 18's.

Its always a good deal when you get rims and tires for less than the price of the tire. Does not mean the application applies to the vehicle but a great deal.

So negative offset means your wheel sticks out more from the fender?

Oh ok I'll let him know, but I did some research within the past half hour and I think I've found out it has a 40 offset. So what does that mean? Will it stick out more? Or in?

Hmm the guy said he had them on a newer civic with the 5 bolt, he had said its a 5 bolt twice and the bolt pattern is 5x114.3 the same as the civic and my car. They must make a 5x114.3 version, or he is lying which would do him no good..
