    the diameter of the rim is not the problem, its the clearance with the spokes of the rim hitting the caliper. the wheels are coming off the car soon for the winter so i will do some testing to see how much room i really have. if i can get away with grinding some of the caliper i may do that. btw you have any pics of your setup from the 03?

    NYCSTANG,
    The Brembo's used in 03 and those used on the 05+ are different by 10 fold when it comes to mounting and construction.

    I think your out of luck, there are very few wheels that will fit over the factory Shelby brembo's. ROUSH and Shelby wheels fit, also American Racing has a few since they make the 20" that Shelby sells with the Shelby name on them....


    Good luck let us know if you find out something different :)

    bullitt2343,
    glad you posted, i forgot about this post, lol. actually i think i found a set of wheels that will work. according to a few vendors, the new bullitt motorsports 454 style wheels in 20 inches work onm the shelby gt500's. they are the bullitt style wheels that have the rivets in them if you've never seen em. they are a mix of teh foose and bullit style wheels. go to stage3motorsports.com, they have them if you are interested in checking them out. they dont have them listed under the gt500 but i called and asked them about it.
