Oh for sure your going to have to get some spacers. Not sure on size but I would say at least 1/2".

what in the ****?

They will fit fine. I had to use a 3mm spacer to clear my 99GT calipers with brand new pads. Once the pads wore in, i didnt need the spacer anymore.

It all the depends on the actual width (3.5, 4, ???) & the back spacing.

On my 94 and the 95 before it i had to use a 1/2 in spacer to clear the calipers too! both 3.5 and the 4 in i have now!

Call weld racing summit and god forbid jegs and ask them they will confirm the fitment issue!

I had to run a small spacer on the front with my skinnies on my notch after my 5 lug swap. I believe they were only 1/8" ones. Picked them up at pepboys for 15$
