Rim size.

So I'm on craigslist and I found a pair of 20x8.5 black enkeis that I like. I texted the owner and the offset is 40mm. Tires are 255/35zr20. Will these fit my car? I drive a 2007 v6 auto

For looks yeah ...now if I u know of any body shop that can make urs smaller that could work too( cutting the stocks ones I mean) itll keep some $$$ in ur side thats what I did until I was able to afford a sports kit also make sure to measure how many inches of drop u want before u do anything. Ima put up a pic of mine when I get home got it 3.5 to 4 inches off the floor

Re: Rim size.

Need to check the bolt pattern and see if that will work for the mustang.

Will cut springs make the ride suffer? Is it better to just get lowering springs and pay the extra? And yes, I made sure it was the same pattern lol...

Just pay the extra to buy lowering springs. I ha cut spring on mine and the ride was bouncy and all my struts and shocks went bad.

Re: Rim size.

I believe 40mm is fine for the rear but not the front~ i think the front needs to be less... I cant remember but you can compare to american muscle rims in 20xXX and see what offset they have for front wheels vs rear wheels (rear are just the 10 wide or so)
