Re: need tire help asap

You should be fine I store my 02 GT with my old 97 V6 alloy rims on the back. I think the 99-04 GT's and V6's use the same rotors. Your speedo may be off a little.

They will work, some 99-00 GT's came with stock 16 inch rims so do the math of your overall height (or just measure) and the 15's shoudl be about the same. The rims will bolt up and clear the brakes so that wont be an issue. You should be good to go.

Re: need tire help asap

if the rims are from an 05+ v6 you may have issues with back spacing but I think all 05 plus are 16s at least~ a spacer will fix any fitment issues if they are from an 05 up
