Will these tires fit my 2000 V6 Mustang.

I'M trying to make my 2000 V6 mustang look a little better by taking off my stock rims and putting on a set of rims from a 2008 GT Mustang. The rims I want to buy are 18's and the tire size is 235-50-zr18. I talked to the guy selling them and he said they will fit no problem. Is this true? If so I'll purchase them but what are your opinions on setting the car off. That I mean, should I lower the car because me adding on this set would obviously make it taller. I don't want the car to look fake. Thanks for your time.

They really shouldn't raise your car much if any to be honest...

I would, however, see if you can test-fit them to your car because the 2005+ wheels have a different backspacing than the 99-04 wheels. This might just look funny but it could actually cause rubbing in the wheel wells at certain times.

I'd see if he'll let you put them on your car and turn the wheel to full lock both direction. Also, they're gonna look goofy as hell in the rear because they'll be set way in.

True... I'm kinda stuck in buying them as of this point and he lives 6 hours away from me. There is no way I can get there in time to put the tires on as the bidding ends really soon. Well hopefully I get them cheap enough so If they don't fit maybe in reselling them they'll make me more then what I paid lol.

Most 05+ wheels don't look too bad. Like lowflyn said, the back will definitely have that tucked look. A pair of H&R wheel spacers would take care of that.
