Question about wheels

I'm looking at a set of Cragars for my 95, I'm thinking 15x8 in the front and 15x10 in the back, the set I'm looking at have 4" backspacing front and back, would thhat cause any fitment issues on rotors or anything? And with those sizes, do you think it would set the wheels flush with the fenders in the front and back or should I look at 7" in the front and 9" in the back with a 4" backspacing?

Yeah I wouldn't go past 9" in the back otherwise you will need spacers, also I'm not sure about the 4" backspacing might not work out. If you stick with 7" in the front the fender should line up, because of your body style your wheels will stick out a little in the front with 8" or wider.

Also if you plan on lowering it like I do then there is no point in going 10.5

I don't plan to lower it, I'm going to replace all the shocks/springs, struts, and UCA's and LCA's. But I'm going to stay at stock height, at least in the rear, might go with a tad lower in the front and stance it. But I'm mainly worried about the rears sitting flush or even a few millimeters outside the rear fender, I'm going for that classic hotrod/muscle look.

The wheels are cragar soft 8's, they're pretty cheap but I like the look of them, they're old school drag style.

Anyone know what the stock backspacing and offset is for sn95? Or what tolerances their are with them? I've never bought new wheels, and not the specific ones I want, so I'm not sure...always just ended up with sets of wheels in trades lol

Thanks for the info so far!

Also, the 9" and 10"s I was looking at for the rear are deep dish, they have the same backspacing as the fronts but they have a deep outside lip.

Your rear wheels should be flush with the quarter panels, I can't say for sure though with the type of wheels you are talking about they might be out a little bit more than normal Mustang wheels.

I've actually thought about doing a wheel setup like this on my 2000 without lowering it to get that old school hot rod look. Post some pics of it when you get it done.

Those wheels I was looking at, after some more checking, will not work, at least without spacers.. they'll rub the calipers. I don't trust spacers, especially with how I drive. So no cragar soft 8s for my stang
