What is the scoop on Mustang wheels?

Take a 17x8 5.72"BS Bullitt wheel from an '01-04 Mustang or even an 03-04 Cobra wheel which is 17x9 6.12"BS

Will it fit a 93-up Ranger without any modifications?

Will the cap fit without a spacer?


Will the wheels look too sucked in (too much backspacing)?

Would a 17x10.5 fit in the rear with a 6.87" BS?

Thanks guys!

I have no clue about a I-beam truck...but i know a coil sprung 98+ truck needs a 7/16" spacer to clear the hubs....along with longer studs.

So to run 17x9 03-04 terminator wheels I'd need 7/16'' spacers and ARP studs?

Yeah they dont always need spacers.. I had 18x9" 03-04 cobra rims (non-oem) on my 2000 and they fit good.. but in order to run the front center caps, i had to get spacers.

The cobra OEM ones we put on my littlebrother's truck, we neededthe 7/16 spacer and longer wheel studs just to clear the hub.....he still can't even run the center caps. The pony logo ones. Granted..i am speaking of a 98+...and this is a '01.
