Default Would the 99-04 FR500's work on the 05-09 Mustang GT?

Basically what the title says, would these (http://www.americanmuscle.com/anthra...tomo-stag.html) work on my 06 mustang gt. I like those or the black chrome, but i'm curious if they'll bolt right up.

well, its getting cold outside again...****in reached down to the 40s the other day.  almost can't wait for the snowy stuff............................almost i don't have a twitter account nor have i ever been to a twitter web page (update: i have), but if i ever did decide to take the plunge i will let you know by posting it in this awesome little box of text (update: not really)! i like tacos lol...though between crunchy tacos and soft tacos i cannot really say which one is better.  sometimes, the mess a crunchy taco leaves behind is a little annoying while the soft taco just doesn't have the same taste... cake is so much better than pie no, srsly.  **** pie. ****ing

I think those should bolt right up but the offset is different and they won't look like a good fit compared to S197 wheels.

They have the wrong offset and will extend out past your fenders, but they will bolt on.

Better to just get the same style in your year with the right offset, I guess AM doesn't have the black chome or anthracite finish in the 05-09 that you were looking at, but cruizin concepts & LMR do...

These guys have provided you with the correct information. They will physically fit onto the car because the bolt pattern is the same. However, the offset is +30 all the way around, compared to 05-09's that have a +45 offset in the rear. The wheel/tire won't have the same flush fitment you would get if you had the correct offset.

We do offer FR500's for the 05-09 Mustangs. Is there any reason why you're not interested in them?

Well I like the styles Lethal Performance has. They have the same styles you guys do, but they're for the 99-04's. I'll just go ahead and order them from lethal. ( http://www.lethalperformance.com/sho...fr500-wheels-6 )

Don't be scared if aggressive offsets!

These are 8.75"+20mm front and 9.75"+20mm rear. Idk if you can see it in the picture. I could get some more if needed.
