05 rim on an 01 bullitt?

Would it make a huge difference if I put this rim which is meant for a 2005 on my 01 bullitt? Click image for larger version

You need spacers. Good hubcentric ones will cost enough to make whatever savings you think you'll be getting nil. Bullitts are dirt cheap on AM and ebay, not sure why you'd need to do 05-14s.

Also, I would not buy rims from someone who is setting one on the lip of another. Fail...

Just because I give you advice, doesn't mean I know more than you. Its just means I've done more stupid ****.

I bought both of these rims for $120. Don't know if it can get much cheaper than that...and I also bought them off the guy who makes the caliper covers for AM.

why would you only buy 2 rims that don't match your car...
like said above you would just need spacers. Otherwise they don't fit.
maybe you could sell them and make some money

Hubcentric ones. They are not going to be cheap which is what I was saying before about it not really being cost effective. Even at $60/rim.

I failed to mention that one of the rims is 18x9 which will fit.
I impulse bought these rims because they were a really good deal I couldn't pass up. I was planning on buying the other 2 off of American muscle but now that I know the rear one will not fit without spacers should I try and sell it and get 18x10s that will fit? Or go 18x9s all around?

18x9 front and 18x10 rear, staggered is the only way to go in these cars.

My front 18x8s disagree



Lol for a 96-98 I'm finding 8" wide up front is better. For a 99-04 with the wider fenders 9" looks good.

Also, just FYI with ALL replica rims, AM included, soapy water ONLY to clean them. They will not warranty a wheel with a messed up finish if you've been using no scrub wheel cleaner. They can tell too.

Yea he has an 01... The 99-04 do have the wider fender flares up front which makes it nice for a 9" wide wheel.
