You're gonna have to do 5 lug conversion before you do anything. You know that right?

They will look sexy if they're deep dish. If not, forget it, in my opinion.

actually pro50sc i think ive seen the bullitt rims for four lug.99% sure of it. may have been in modified mustang magazine or something but im sure they have them. i think 18s may look a little funny on a fix though. you are looking at the 10.5 rears and 9 front right? i have really seen a fox with bullit on it that i can remember. id like to see how it looks. they may hang out under thw wheel well though, might be weird looking. they looked awesome on my 2001 and 73 though

Real "bullitt" rims come ONLY in 5 lug. Maybe he means something else.

I had 17x9's and 17x8's on mine. IMO, 18's are too big for a fox. Not my car though.

see my sig, i have 17x9's all the way around, deep dish is a no go without tubbing, i get rubs with 275's on these in the back, and IMO they look great, only rub is on the inside on hard cornering, and a little A arm wheel grind on full lock

Deep Dish would move the wheel out, why would you need to tub it? If it had a little more back spacing, it wouldn't rub and have a deeper look and clear everything.

Here they are on a notch, but considering you have a 'vert I think you said its almost the same.

My buddy has them in 17x9's on his '92 LX and they look great but you need the 5 lug conversion.

too bad you're 100% wrong [8D] the rim design does not allow for 4 lug
