    Cheesy....no, but you'd better make sure the backspacing is correct for the SN95 spindles.

    on american muscle they have the same wheel listed twice, the link I gave and then again under 94-04 section. Same specs, same part # but here's the kicker, the listing for the fox mustang is $109 ea, the listing for the sn's is $169.

    IMO, that would look horrible.

    The '87-'93 wheels are cheaper because they're marked as being on clearance. They have the exact same backspace and offset as the '94-'98 wheels. They have a 9" wide version listed in the '94-'98 section. You could put a pair of those on the rear if you decide to go this route. I don't think they'd look that bad.

    Why are you looking for 17x8 wheels?

    If its tires, 245/45's fit fine on a 17x9 wheel.
    I ran around for years on 17x9's with 245/45's all around.

    I don't understand either. What is the problem with getting 17x9?

    Yeah? Everyone is recommending the 270 tires and such. Gear banger 101 even a 255 wouldn't be enough tire for a 9" wheel said something to the fact that the wheel would stick out further than the and not do well against road hazards and curbs etc etc
