2005 s197 bullitt wheels on a 2012 gt non Brembo

Will these wheels 17x8 fit the 11+ cars? I have a spare set and was going to use them for drag wheels. I know they won't fit the front bc of the bigger brakes but was hoping they'd work on the rear.

They should fit the rear. If you have them why haven't tried then?

I did try them but they wouldn't spin freely while the wheels were off the ground which worried me. I don't want to have to go to spacers and am not familiar with grinding them down any though that may be an option.

I am 99% sure they should fit just fine; I have 17" winter wheels for my 2010 and I'm pretty sure the rear is exactly the same.

I'm guessing the parking brake was rubbing ; did the stock wheels spin freely when you put them back on?

But 8" is pretty narrow for a drag radial, isn't it?

my stock wheels are brembo takeoffs and yeah they do spin freely when mounted. 8' isn't bad. You can run a 275 DR just fine on it. Was going to utilize these wheels since I had them already, but when they wouldn't spin freely I worried that they were rubbing something. I guess it's not necessarily a bad thing if they aren't spinning freely?

Does anyone have any thoughts on this? Can I run the wheels safely even if they don't freely spin?

I would try real hard to find the source of the problem first -- what is rubbing / what is causing them to not spin freely?

I think it's because the backspacing/offset is different so the wheel is hugging the brake really closely. I mounted both rear wheels and drove it and it will move under power, just not freely. Trying to determine if that's a good idea to continue or not.
