lmk= Let Me Know

Just opinion, but I don't like them on early cars... I like the wheelwells full of tire, not wheel. You are talking about the late-model 17" wheels, correct?

Although I really like the 17x8 Bullit/GT wheels, I don`t know if they will fit, due to the large backspacing. Yesterday I tried fitting these wheels from a 2002 GT Mustang onto my 59 full size Ford, & the rim hit the upper ball joint well before the wheel was sitting on the drums hub surface. On the rear, the rim was less than a inch from the leaf spring. Not much room for tire bulge. Plus I would never run wheel spacers to make the wrong size wheel fit the car.

YOU DON'T USE SPACERS YOU USE ADAPTERS, THEY BOLT ONTO THE HUB AND THEN YOU BOLT THE WHEEL UP TO THE ADAPTER.
