Wheels Question?

Okay, so I already started a thread on how I went offroading in my mustang and needed a new wheel. Well they sent me the wrong bolt pattern of course, and to top it off I need 2 new wheels (and they have one).

Thread: https://www.allfordmustangs.com/forum...help-fast.html

So I think I'm going to get these Cobra R wheels, but don't know if I can have a 24mm offset (car isn't lowered, but isn't stock 45mm?).

Here they are: Mustang® Cobra 98 Deep Dish Wheels

Those have the wrong backspacing and offset for the S197 cars so they will stick out from under the fenders a little. It wont look too bad on the rear but on the front/rear you'll look like a 4x4 ..

Well will it affect driving? Because I can also get FR500s from AM.

Probably not unless you plan on road racing .. I know other people have run the earlier wheels on the late model platform.
