What do you guys think ??

Hey guys i have a 2002 mustang gt and I work at a truck accessories shop but also do after market wheels and tires we basically do it all .. Anyways I came around to some brand new "take offs" no scratches very clean 2015 mustang premium wheels 20" . My thoughts where to take my wheels off and send them to get painted or powder coated and put the 2015 on ... Opinions on how you think they would look or if it would even work ? Thanks

The Offset will be weird on your car with the wheels

20" is entirely way to big for a new edge. They look disproportionate with any bigger than an 18".

Yeah you can run 20s but you'll be on rubber bands as far as tires. Like a 30 sidewall...

Just FYI, the 05+ rims will bolt up to 04-down cars but the backspacing is off and they need spacers to fit properly.

good one fabman! you never wanta look like brand x.if you look real close....i think i see about a hundred circus clowns gettin ready to jump out of the trunk.i like a staggered 18'' wheel when it comes to the newedge and lowered about an inch and a half.now you don't need a tree house rope ladder to get in and out of the car.lol! all kidding aside,if you go with anything bigger than a 18 i think you'll get into to many rubbing issues.20's do look good on the new ones!

They definitely fit the newer mustangs much better. In fact I wouldn't go smaller than an 18 on a newer one.

If you like the 4x4 disproportionate look 20's are the way to go! Even lowered they would likely sit higher than stock.

On a side note, at least it will sit high enough to make getting under it to constantly change bushings and ball joints easier....

I have actually seen a couple really nice 19 out back and 18 up front CCW combos in SN95s. And they were properly done, lowered, good handling cars, not some ghetto donk rolling around on ridiculous wheels that are just shoe horned in there.
