There are a bazillion wheel options for this car. What do you mean you're having trouble finding wheels?

I have wheel spacers. Not bolt on but they slide on the studs and bolt between the wheel and rotor. I have had zero issues with them and they fill the wheel wells much better. Mine are 3/8"

Yeah, with the track pack (brembo brakes). I am having issues finding wheels of my liking. AM has got some wheels I like but none that are 19x10. I have already ordered and received my Motegi racing wheels MR120 satin black but the front 19x8.5 off set is +45 which does not fit by 1/8 of an inch. It rubs the calipers just barely. They also have + 35 19x8.5 but not sure that will help my cause. I get really confused with the off sets. So I am thinking that bolt on spacers is the way to go. Just want to make sure this isn't a bad idea!?! Anyways let me know if you have any suggestions...

Have you checked out the Vossen line up? Very unique wheels and not to often seen around the Mustang community like the AM's, RTR's, etc.

I agree they cost a lot. I've had a few slam me for liking them because they are also very heavy.

I love those wheels, but the only thing that holds me back is that I can't get over how the rear wheels have a different angle to the spokes than the front to make up for the width. I'd almost rather have a big lip than different looking spokes.

That's the beauty of the deep concave spokes
