Would these wheels and tires fit?

I found a sweet set of 17" bullit wheels with good tires on them. The tire size is 245-45-ZR 17.

They are from an 02GT, would this be overkill?

They will look a little small on your car. They should fit if the offset is ok.

Well my tire size is P215/65 r17 so these tires are the same diameter but i guess they are wider then my stocks. My main concern is will these rub against the fender well, or cause any issues(Its a craigslist sale, that i have yet to see in person.) Also wondering if the bolt pattern will match up.

Basically the price is amazing and im in dire need for new tires. Chirping around every corner so i figured a wheel and tire combo would be a nice route to go.

If its any consolation, I'm running 245/45/R19

The Z is simply a speed rating

I think that should answer your question about fitment.

They are not too wide to fit. You can get a 285 on with no problem. My guess is that the offset is not the same. Look up some specs on 02 GT wheels and your wheels and make sure the offset is the same.

How are they the same diameter??? Your speedometer is going to be off by 9.04% because of the 2.32" diameter difference. It will look weird.



Ask the guy if you can mount them on your car to see if they fit correctly.

Yeah that sounds like a good idea, i suppose i could get my tire pressure sensors installed at a later period.

Im sure if people are running 275-40-18 on 18x9 in the front then you are fine.

That tire's a lot shorter than what you have on there now as said above

figure out what the offset is on those, ill bet they stick out a bit more than your stockers

They are probably a 24mm offset. This will make them stick out just a bit past the fenders. I know other guys who have run 24mm offset on S197 Mustangs without any problems.

Definitely not the same diameter. The stock tires are 28" while the 245/45R17 are only 25.7"
