Default 05 GT stock rims/tires

Greetings all,
I finally upgraded to 20's on my GT. A friend that has a 95 wants to buy my stock 17's. Will they fit on his car or does he need to get spacers to make it work. His book said it won't work but I remember someone saying something about spacers.... Any info or links will help...Thanks

They will indeed bolt up, and the fronts will look fine. The rear however will be sunk back in the fenderwell pretty deep. I sold the stock wheels off my 05 to a friend with a 95 GT and he ended up ordering wheels from American Muscle because how far back the rear wheels were. Spacers could make them work, but it would have to be one of the big, hub style spacers/adapters to get them out far enough. A regular 3/8" spacer won't even get it close.

Cool, thanks for the info....What's the going price for all 4.... the rubber has 45000 miles on a 60000 mile tire and 1 rim has a very small curb kiss... I was thinking a 100 for all.... that seem a fair price?
