Mine own personal preference is that new wheels look good on a newer car and old style look best on older cars. These are some of my favorites. Some of them can be had in 17" although when the car is lowered 17's just look funny to me.
When it comes to older Mustangs I just have a hard time with newer big wheels.

Do you know what year Mustang these are off? If you do we can estimate the offset and if they will fit your mustang.


Here is an interesting article on larger wheels/tires for 67/73 Mustangs.
I had a 66 GT Hi-Pro Coupe and ran the Shelby 10 spokes which are 15x7 and used 225/60-15 tires on all four.

I can't find that wheel in my 2013 guide. Can you get the Ford part number, should be like a D3RZ something.

You should be able to go to tirerack.com and punch in a 2013/1968 mustang and find what numbers you need

It's 17x7 with a 40mm offset. Which means the offset is only 1.575". This means the wheel has almost no dish to it. I personally think it's going to put the tire outside the body of the car or very close to the inner fender. I don't think they will work. I don't know what price you were going to pay, but I can buy these new from Ford for $160ea.
My Shelby 10 spokes were about a 4.225" offset.
Take your body and put a string with a nut on it, tape it to the top of the wheel arch (on the outside of the body) and hang it down. You will need to have the wheel off the car though, then measure from the string to the mounting surface of the brake drum. Minus the body lip plus you will need 1/4" for clearance. This will be half the distance of the wheel and tire....................you can look at www.tires.com to come up all of the dimensions of the tire...............do some measuring and you should be close. Of course all of this needs to be at ride height, so when you jack up the car make sure the jack and stands are under the axle. It also depends on if you car is currently lower, or you are going to lower it.
Hope that helps.

Those 2013 rims would look terrible on your car. Way too modern. If your planning a restomod look for your car at least pick up something with a nice lip. Click image for larger version

I have some takeoff 17x7 rims/tires in the Classifieds: 4 17x7 OEM rims/tires/TPMS - new takeoffs from Roush. I'd be thrilled to get them out of my basement...LOL.

Went out tonight to tinker a little found out the distributer that I got out of all those parts has electronic ignition also was installed incorrectly. I have good compression at least out of cylinder 1 and working on finding my placement on the timing to turn it over

Finally made a little progress on my mustang. Found tdc, redid the fuel lines, got the carb primed and fired it off. Ran, but not great. Will keep updated on progress

Got any recent pictures? I've done a resto on my 68. I'm no expert but I know a lot about my car if you ever get stumped
