Default '05 Mustang rims on my Fox?

Doing a 5 lug and I have a chance at a set of '05 take offs cheap for some temporary and I was wondering if they would work. I know the bolt pattern is the same as 5 lug, but I heard you need adapters to run them on a SN(that is what I using for my 5 lug)

Thanks

I think I figured it out, the offset is different. I will need spacers to make them work I think

Yeah you need spacers, at least 1.5-2" I believe.

The other ones...can't find a picture

I don't think I want to deal with the spacers anyway

If you do huge spacers you may need longer lugs, not cool, just get rims made for sn95's. I just threw some 99 gt rims on mine

How are those working for you? I saw a set on ebay for 100 bucks....those might not be bad for some temps.

You should buy my stock 17" rimswith new fuzion tires. They look good on foxes, just not so much on SN95s.
