This is from when I took them all off for a bath and a wax. I should have put the center cap on for the pic!

It's hard to beat the look of stock pony wheel on a fox. Have you ever looked at the pony r wheels? They look like the stock pony wheels but they are 17" instead of 16". They have them in different widths so if you like them wide all around you can go that route or if you prefer a staggered look (like me) you can do that too.

How wide are those back tires? Do they rub at all?

The rims are 10" wide and I bought a fender roller to roll the fender lips up and that add almost an inch of extra clearance. Then you have to stretch the inner fender well right behind the rear shocks and that adds about 3/4" on the inside well. If that sounds too much like work just buy the 9" rears and put on a 275 40 17.

No rubbing after that.

Definitely like the pony wheels as well. Had them on both my other Mustangs.

It all depends on what you like, that's all that matters.

+1 Had these on my old notchback! I had 17x9 out back and a smaller 17x6.5 up front!
