    How did you swap to 5 lugs? The spindle/brake setup you have used will determine what aftermarket wheels will fit.

    Also what type of wheels do you like, basket weave/mesh, 5 spoke, multi-spoke, classic muscle car, modern, directional, etc. There are a ton of wheels out there that can be made to fit, but your choices will be limited by what type of offset/backspacing you need. More information on your current setup will help others to give you ideas and advice. Good Luck!

    Will be doing standard SVE Cobra Spec 5 lug (13"/11.65") on SN-95 spindles. Will be doing the MM rear traction package (panhard bar and torque arm) upgrade when I install the 8.8 rear end.

    I just do not like the look of most standard mustang rims.
    I like the Focal F-20 or enkie PS01

    The next question that will affect your wheel fitment will be which SN95 spindles. If using the stock K member you want the 94/95 spindles and if aftermarket K member the 96-04 are the ones you want. That affects your front track width that again can affect what backspacing/offset works for your Mustang.

    Another question will be are you going rear disc brake setup? If so what axles are you going to use? That again will affect rear track width and what backspacing/offset works.

    As for your wheel choice, I think what you will find is that many of the aftermarket wheels designed for the 350/370Z and many Lexus vehicles may work for you. Up front with a 17x8 wheel you want @ 30mm offset, 9" @ 24mm offset. The rear again will depend on your brake/axle setup. Generally the 9" @ 24mm and the 10" @ 20-25mm again it will vary depending on your setup. There are many options out there, you can do a search on Ebay using the 5x114.3 bolt pattern and then the wheel diameter to help narrow things down. Good Luck!

    There's an old thread over on Corral with non-Mustang wheel options. Unfortunately, the vast majority of the picture links are dead, but you can maybe get some wheel names to search for - https://forums.corral.net/forums/whe...cs-please.html. As stated above, there are lots of Japanese cars that use the 5x114.3 bolt pattern (RX7, RX8, 350/370/G35/G37, Supra, STI, EVO, etc etc) so there are tons of wheel options out there that Mustang folks may not normally look at.

    I have Enkei RPF1s on mine, but in 18". I've seen folks running 17" RPF1s as well, and they've got a wider range of 17" sizes/offsets than the PF01. Do a Google image search for "Fox Mustang RPF1" and you'll find some good pics. May be hard to tell if they're 17" or 18" in the pics, but it'll give you a good idea.

    I went with Enkei Kojin wheels on my car. 17x8 front and 17x9 rears. They are available in a couple of different offsets too.
