I bought 17inch roush take-offs...Won't fit my 13' performance pak Mustang

As the title says, I got the wheels/tire take-off delivered today and mounted them on my 2013 v6 performance package mustang. All wheels fit nicely until mechanic at Bell Tire could not back out my car. He raised the car to check out the problem then he noticed front wheels were completely stuck, rubbing against calipers.

It's weird since fellow Mustang owners with performance package are using them on their car. Even the guy at Roush said I won't have any problem when I bought the wheels in-person.

The best solution I can think of is I'm gonna try to ask them for a refund...if not they will be on sale here at classified section. I'll keep you guys posted. In addition, I would like to hear from owners with 17inch take-offs on their performance package v6.

Have a great and safe Holiday!!!

Front calipers were touching the wheel. It had plenty of space between the spoke and caliper though.

wait.. he didn't spin the wheels and check to see if they freely spun before trying to drive the car? Lucky you didn't screw up your calibers.

I have an 1/8th to 3/16th of an inch of space on mine, you might just want to get some 1/4 inch spacers for the front and you should be OK.
BTW which wheels did you get, I got the 2013 Premium wheels and they do fit fine

I got the base one for $550. When I looked at it, it had some visible space(1/8th to 3/16th sounds about same), but front wheels would just not rotate...Would you look at this picture and perhaps upload yours so that you and I could compare?

Weird. I bought the exact same wheels from Roush, and they fit fine over my 2013 V6 Performance Package brakes.


EDIT: But now that you've made this thread, I'm totally going to go and check tomorrow to make sure the wheel weights weren't scraped off.

This makes me ponder that the '13 PP upgraded the rotor diameter and caliper bracket to that of a OE 5.0. With an '11-'12 you should have zero clearance issues with the OE PP calipers touching the wheel

Here is mine, the spokes are different than yours on the wheels

I have 5/8th of an inch from the Caliper to the wheel

That certainly would be interesting and some sort of validation for the people who switched out their front brakes to the 5.0 version. Maybe just the bracket or caliper changed slightly?
