Trying New Rims and Tires

Have anyone tried to place a 15-17 rim on a new edge mustang yet. I have a friend with a '17 GT and he has offered his old rims and tires. The front are 19 x 8.5 which should be fine, I think on the car. But not sure the offset and the spacing in the rear for a 19 x 10 inch rim in the back. He currently has 285's on it right now. Does anyone know if they fit and what is required to make them fit?
Thanks in advance

Newer style rims looks good so since they are free, I just need to find out what it takes to get them to work on my car

The offset and backspacing is completely different between the New Edge and the 2017 model cars.

I'm not in the same town as the guy as I am in college and my car is on jacks because of my suspension but was wanting to look and try to find out before I got back to town and maybe buy the spacers already and see how they really look.

You are just all over the place with that car...Focus on one thing at a time. You started at a supercharger, then plastidip, now at wheels and your car is still on jack stands needing suspension work....you're spreading yourself too thin...

I had to learn a new limitation last year. I cannot jump to intercept a football, downhill, in cowboy boots.

I landed on the ball and dislocated a rib from my sternum. A year later, it still hurts.

If I had done this at 20 I would have dusted myself off and been good for another game. At 40 it freakin hurts a year later. Lol

Well when the new ball joints come in and I'm back home then I'll be done with that. Just wanted ideas for plasti dip. And my friend offered me his wheels if I can find out if they can fit.

I have a 2012 that I bought off of a 2-year lease. It came with 19/8.5 American Muscle wheels on front with 255/40/19 tires, and the rear has 19/10 wheels with 285/35/19 tires. Looks great and there are no issues (except can't rotate tires).

Don't know if this info is applicable to the 2017 models.

I have bought(unknowingly) two cars with spacers, first thing I did was pull off the rims and put them on Craigslist. Just me but I prefer function over form. Might still have them somewhere if you want them. Just lucky I guess but I have always found the proper fitting wheels that I like. My latest DD actually needed spacers I found out the hard way. I replaced the front pads on my ZX2 and the wheels would not rotate, OP put on the aftermarket wheels with the pads worn enough to clearance the wheels.
Free nice wheels are sure tempting though.

I am looking for bolt on 1 inch spacers for the rear and still looking for the proper spacing that I will need to get the front to properly fit. Yeah, free wheels are super tempting, which is why I am trying to get this to work.

Ouch sounds painful! At least you can still wear them. An injury of my right foot ankle in my youth has reared its ugly head and now no more cowboy boots. No other shoe like'em! Miss them!

Before adding spacers, take the time to read about the many spacer failures. There are enough to keep me away from the idea.

I have several pair of boots. I prefer boots over anything else. If I'm not wearing boots, I have flip flops on.

The boots actually relieve my ankles.

I have a set of 1" spacers on the IRS. Will see how it does when I run it. They are CJ Pony Parts aluminum hubcentric ones and I have extended studs.

As for actual shoes... I wear combat boots all the time (military). I wear comfy *** beat to hell converse shoes, sneakers or memory gel adidas sandals in my off time lol.

and why is that? hub centric spacers dont take any weight on the studs them selves. and if its not a casted piece whats the issue

something that puts some power down and hooks, then you will see.

I also suggest removing the studs that come with the spacers and replacing them with some ARP studs. They will make anything you want.

lol im not sure you understand the physics behind a hub centric spacer. with all do respect. the weight and physical stress from rotating mass is on the hub not studs. all the studs are doing is keeping the wheel tight to the spacer. albeit there are cheap spacers that do not work this way and do have a better chance of failing.

as well billet means made from a solid block, not casted, you would undoubtedly affect the integrity of the design if you changed studs.

Build these cars on a daily basis. As well as trucks ect. Put some power to the ground and see what happens. I do not trust them on anything other than a car or truck that litteraly cruises around

But anyways. Like I said I do not trust them. And at the same time I do not like putting them on customers cars or trucks. Reason why a separate waiver is signed for them.

explain to me what you think will happen if "more power to the ground " is added. i am curiois to see what you believe.

fyi NHRA allow "hub centric " or " lug centric " spacers to be installed. so csrs with excess 1000hp run these.

lol dont get all grouchy now because you cant explain to me why you so strongly believe theyre dangerous. ignorance is a dangerous thing. to so blindly believe something without any evidence to support your statement.

whats scary is you build cars and trucks with no real undetstanding of geometry and physics. give me any reasons of why theyre dangerous other than " i have my reasons"

and i will have fun with my 12 second 2v mustang. as well as my 9 second dart and 10 second ranger , pal !
