Default Newb question about mustang wheels...

I'm sure this topic has been beat and beat to death, but I have searched and hey what will a forum become without new topics . Anyway Im wanting to do a 2/3 drop on my '00 ranger 2wd and want either fr500's or 03 cobra replicas'. Not sure yet what size I want to do, so what all would it take for these combo's?


Would even consider some take off '01 cobra wheels which I believe are 17x8

Thanks in advance for any input!

Default Re: Newb question about mustang wheels...

Well i have 17x8 '00 mustang GT wheels on my '97. The front rims are gunna need spacers to clear the hubs and idk about yours but on my truck the front tires rub the swaybar at full lock. And also the inner wheel weights rub front lower shock mounts. Some of these problems may be different or not an issue on your '03. But thats just my input. Also, i kinda like the 18" saleen wheels. Just my input. Hope some of it helps.
