2006 Mustang GT rims and tires fit a 1965 Mustang?
Will 2006 Mustang GT rims and tires fit a 1965 Mustang without any spacers or rubbing?

Rims and tire have around 60% of tread left on them and they are Pirelli P-Zero Nero 235/55/ZR17 tires

Cant upload a picture at work.. Will tonight..
Heres the link.

no not without will need about an inch and a half adapter

I saw a post from 2009, which said they would fit without a spacer and no rub. Where does this spacer go? and does the front and rear both need a spacer?

Of course I cant find the article now...

Rustymopar 04-25-2013 07:23 PM

Found it.. Seems the tire is the issue though... What are your thoughts?

I don't see any mention of them not working with out spacers, except for maybe on the rear if the axle is wider. In which case, I would pass on them. If they won't fit without spacers, they don't belong on the car.

the problem with the tires was a 55 series 17" is over 27" tall.if you were to use a 225/45/17 there shouldnt be any rubbing issues depending on the height of the car.

Are they any modern Mustang Rims and tires which will work on a 65?
So essentially, its the tires size which is the issue?

Rustymopar 04-28-2013 02:02 PM

How about a 17" rims... 245/45 spacers still? If so,, What size?

Rustymopar 04-28-2013 07:44 PM

This is what I'm considering..

those are a better choice the sn95 wheels fit with only a 1inch spacer in the front and a 1/2 inch in the rear(i run a 1 inch in the rear too with my sn95 rims)

Rustymopar 04-29-2013 10:41 AM

What is Sn95? What does that mean? What year rims are they?

Iskwezm 04-29-2013 11:26 AM

SN95 is the Mustang platform(1979-1993-Fox,1994-2004-SN95,2005+S197)

You also hear the 99-04 models called the New Edge as well.

I like it more than SN95, but that is probably because I own one.

For what it's worth...I'm running a set of factory 15x7" wheels off a 1996 V-6 Mustang on my '65 (wheels were put on by PO). I'm running P195-60 tires on the front, and P295-50s on rear. The wheels seem to work well (damn ugly, though!), but do need a 5/8" spacer and longer wheel studs to run on a '65. I plan to eventually replace them....that is, when I have an extra $600+ for a new set!
