Im looking at some wheels...

17x10 - REAR
+25mm offset
6.83 Backspacing

17x9 - FRONT
+22mm offset
5.95 Backspacing


How well would these fit a Conquest?  What size spacers would be needed?

EDIT: My car is lowered 1.5"-2" on Cosmo coilovers....

So I went ahead and picked up a set last night....LMR Mustang site has the set new for $607 shipped...

Saleen SC Replica Mustang wheels...
17x10/17x9 CHROME...

Now times to figure out what tire size I want to roll with...I was thinking 275 on rear, and 245 on front...

You would need around 5.75" backspacing in the rear and front to clear suspension. So, at least a 1" (25mm) spacer on the back.

I like those. Figure it all out so I can copy. No one will know , I'm in the deep boondocks.
The tires on your new pic look like rubber bands. I'd hate to hit many railroad tracks with those. I like the tires on the blue Mustang better. Or at least in between those two.

What will you do for center caps?

When you guy's use spacers, do you need longer lug studs?

I just bought the wheels online...I stole that pic from the internet....My wheels havent arrived yet...

I use 1" spacers for my Weld wheels on the rear, and I had to trim the stock studs down maybe 8mm...

You just trim the studs down, and use something like this:

When you trim the studs make sure you account for the thickness of the rotor or else you won't be putting any wheels on!  .... I made that mistake once.
My newest wheels actually have reliefs in the wheel so I didn't have to trim anything.

My 275/50/15 need spacers.   Weld wheel has 5.5" backspacing.  And it hits the spring perch.  I may cut some perch off before I mount these saleen wheels.

I have the saleen reps as well, not sure if the specs are the same or not but I was running 2" spacers in the rear and 1.25" front on mine for flush fitment (no poke). 245/40s on the rear and 215/45s on the front (something like that). Definitely one of the best looking wheels available for these...I've got a used set with tires and appropriate front and rear spacers (and hubcentric rings) for 700 plus shipping ;)

I know you had the Saleen wheels available, but I rather have chrome...I bought 275/40 and 235/45....Ill get them mounted and then see if spacers are needed,,,

Got wheels mounted and balanced today.

The 10s in the rear fit nice with a 1" spacer. The front 9s fit fine without a spacer, but I may run a spacer to get it more flush.

Forgive the dirty wheels from being mounted today:

I am so happy you did not stretch those.

With the right spacer they should fit well.

I tested fitted my 17x10.5 +27mm Deep Dish Terminator Replicas with 315/35 tires on the rear of my widebody. I figured with a 24mm/1in. spacer the fitment would be about perfect.

I wasnt sure if anything over a 275 would fit...I work for Michelin, so I had to get BF Goodrich/Michelin tires so I could get my discount. And they dont offer tires over 275 (not in a summer street tire)...
