I searched! Mustang rims

Check these out. After selling my current wheels to my dad, it would be 50$ out of pocket for these. Would they fit? It is only about an hour drive for me, maybe I should drive down there and try to put them on before I drive off.

This whole setup is waaaaay out of my comfort zone. I would be really happy with it looking more like zach's, but it just doesn't seem very logical, and I am a SUCKER for logic. I have had my offroad vehicles, and I'm out of that phase. Putting bigger tires on it doesn't make sense, especially until gas gets cheeper.

Leave Lee Ann alone! LOL jk I think it was Wowak? They looked good from what I remember.. On a side note, I ran adapters on my 2000 with the 18x9 cobras and did not feel comfortable with them at all, Especially on the highway. So I took them off after a week and just dealt with looking at the ugly dust caps lol

Darn, all womak's pics are too old, they aren't hosted anymore.

Someone has to explain to me, or point me to an illustration of what this "offset" is that doesn't allow them to fit right. If the rim is bolted up to a flat surface, unless the lugs are too long I dont see how it could affect the center caps.

I also have stumbled on some sweet wheels off a 2006 dodge charger, and after searching, everyone says that their lug pattern is 5x115mm. I have never heard of 115mm, is this just shorthand for 114.3mm? Will they fit?

I had to deal with this recently as I put on 18" Black Cobra's on mine.

On the front wheels the hub sticks out too far and the center cap is to shallow and cannot go on the wheel unless you run a spacer to move the wheel farther out on the hub so that the cap can clear.

I am just going to paint my dust covers black and it will look fine.
