Can someone help me out

Okay I'm trying to choose these set of rims... But I'm not sure what I'm looking for as far as the specs. Here's a pic

Ok I see the bolt pattern but I'm really not sure about the 5x100, 5x112, and 5x114.3 I can't seem to understand the difference and which is better for my car.

Also I'm seeing 25,35, and 45 in the off set column. I'm pretty sure that's the with but I really don't know which to choose. I would like to be staggered though 18x8 front and 18x9.5 on the back with the wide tires lol.

So can someone please help me out

Not sure about what bolt pattern u have.... But offset is...

On the wheel where the hub bolts up to the lugs.. Say u have an 8 inch rim and the wheel hub is bolted to the lugs 4 inches from the outer lip of the rim.. U would have an offset of 0..

Offset is measured in mm. There's 25.4 mm in 1 inch. So say ur offset is +25.4 on an 8 in rim.. That means that where the hub bolts up to the lugs is 5 inches from the inside lip of the wheel and 3 inches from the outside lip (the side of the wheel u actually see when it's on the car).

That means that the wheel will be pushed out further (be closer to the outside of the fender) than a wheel with +45 offset.. Get it?

Ur much better off ordering wheels from a mustang site that carry wheels specifically for mustangs, specifically for ur year, with the correct bolt pattern, and correct offset. I don't even recognize that website ur on but it looks kinda sketchy
