Switching to a lug centric setup isn't the end of the world, but thought I would mention it.

Also, there are notes on the product pages and in the reviews that stock wheels may not work. Looks like some people have made them work by cutting the lead in part of each factory stud off. That would not impact mounting strength, just make it a little hard to start the lug nuts if you every took off the spacers.

Yea, I used hubcentric. Got them off Ebay for $114.99. To be honest, I'm not even sure the difference between hubcentric and lug centric, but figured I wanted hubcentric. There is zero vibration with them on at any speed.

Post Definitely want Hubcentric spacers on newer Mustangs.

Any spacer over 1/4 inch and you should probably get longer studs. If handling is important to you, I would suggest spacing equally on all four corners. A lot of study went into the spacing/offsets on the new Mustangs.
