The wheels are cheap enough, and I would change that stupid center cap emblem, but the fronts are 17 x 9, and are 6.11" B/S.
Seems to me that that would be all over the strut on a fox.
The backs are 17 x 10.5, and are 6.9"B/S ( I think that I can make that work)
I am gonna ck w/ Weldcraft tomorrow to find out how much they charge to narrow the wheel. If I can get them narrowed to 7", then that won't be a problem. Again, that depends on how much that even costs.
yup, can't tell you about changing the width but they would look killer on your car. My fox has the MarkVII spindles. Some rubbing issues with 245's up front, but not that bad to be honest. I think I have 17x8 though...
The problem is that the rears are 9.5" wide and are not backspaced deep enough (5.75"). I'd have to get a longer rear and /or a custom length axle.
I've posted a thread on the tech side asking about rear end length. Is there another fox housing that's longer by 1-1/4" longer on each side?
Why can't this just be easy?
If I just replace my rotors w/ ranger junk, everything will stay in the same place right?
Bumpsteer won't have to be re adjusted, I can keep the same 4cyl spindle, and I'll still have a wussy 10" rotor.
If I change it over to a V8 spindle, then I can get a 11" rotor to fit right?I assume I'll have to change the caliper as well.
If I change it over to SN spindles and hubs, will it affect my track width?
I know bumpsteer will have to be readjusted, and I'll be able to put a honkin rotor on it in the future.
Mike!...There is an "easy" way. My rears are the AFS 17x9s, my fronts are an original set of Ford Racing Mach 1s, which are 17x8. The FRPP 17x8s are a perfect frontrunner for these cars. The grey paint AFS wheels are a nearly perfect match to the FRPP originals, you can't tell any difference once they're on the car.
The only problem is, the FRPP Mach 1s are no longer sold new, BUT I still see mint sets pop up on ebay from time to time, or on various Mustang forum classifieds.
This keeps getting better, and better. So I gotta find a stock set of fronts. I gotta tell you, I'm kinda planning on just putting a set of GT spindles on the thing, and putting on new 11" rotors and calipers. What are you doing for brakes Nik?
I've had them on my 88 GT since around 2007.. I recently bought a 03 mach 1 so it helps having 10 of the same wheels around.. I plan to buy a set of 17x10.5s and switch them out between the cars.. my 88 is now in pieces getting redone.
