2008 mustang rims sucessfully installed

All i did was put longer studs up front, with a 1/2 inch spacer and used the stock studs in the rear with a 5/16 spacer. then extended my steering stops on the lower control arm to make sure the wheels dont rub on the suspension. The turning radius is less, but it is only a factor when pulling into tight parking spots, usually takes me a second try to get it in straight.
