Default gt500 brake kit will it fit?

ive got a set of saleen style 20x 8.5 in the front and 20x10 in the rear. They have a 36mm offset. Will the shelby 500 brake kit fit ok with theses wheels?? i know they only fit certain wheels.

i may be wrong but i think i saw something in 5.0 mustang where you had to get some sort of adapters or something. i dont think they are directly bolt on.

then again i may be totally wrong, but as far as i can tell the brakes should fit fine

Not sure about the Saleen Style.
The GT500 brakes require the OEM GT500 rims for sure.
Maybe THIS will help.

I would imagine they will fit. If Saleen can fit there 15" brakes behind those wheels I don't think the GT500's should be a problem.

Its the size of the GT500 BREMBO caliper, not the size of the
rotor thats the problem here.

I know, but aren't they like 6 piston calipers? there massive, I can't imagine there smaller the the GT500 ones.
