will these 2005 'stang rims work?

I found these rims for a great price on craigslist. Its exactly what I want to put on my truck so if they work im grabbin these soon.

They are from a 2005 mustang. Will these bolt up fine and wont need spacers? I dont care if I cant use the center caps, just want these hot rims.

Here they are:

ya but these have alot of backspacing compared to the older bullets which i believe they also had to use spacers on anyway..

i would guess that you would need at least a one inch spacer to run them because i think the backspacing is almost if not more then 6 inches

good luck! and they will look good if you can use them..

only reason i ask for fitment is because some people with 04 and older mustangs have issues. they are the same size in diameter with treads on as my stock tires, just a little bit wider.

this is what the truck looks right now:

they will work, just no center cap on the front tires.

and i believe there is a custom center cap that is pushed out some so it covers everything and looks somewhat normal

control arms are this summer along with the pulley kit, roller rockers, and a tuner.

i just cant stand the look of the off roadin tires anymore. it needs some rims with a little less rubber
