Mustang wheels on a 2004 4wd Explorer

Anyone heard of doing this?

Basically, on my moms 04 Explorer, we are wanting to update the wheels, and she needs new tires anyway.

I was thinking some nice 18" cobra wheels would look good.

Would they work as far as offset and backspacing?

Remeber this has IFS and IRS.

Thanks!

Saleen's are too blingy, i think the cobra R's will look good.

Saleens FTW they come in any color or luster you want. I do not know about the limits of OFFSET or what not.
