The wheels themselves should fit. the standard tires are about 1.5 inches bigger so the speedo would be way off. They will sit inside the wheel well more too and might cause clearance issues. Dont know for sure though

The
offset is
wrong and
they will be
tucked too far in
causing rubbing while
turning and might rub on
the inside on the rears. The
03 mustang rim offset is
24mm and the 05-09
17" rim offset
is 40mm.

Don't they make the same rims in the correct offset? Well not the same, but they look the same. I would just get the correct offset for your year. You don't want to look like the 87 iroc that drives around here with the rear tires sticking out 6 inches past the wheel well.

I don't like spacers. Spacers equal more stress on the studs and wheel bearings.
