As I understand it from other threads (on here, try some searches):

Yes they will go on the car and clear the brakes; but they are not exactly right so wheels that were designed for S197 car would be "better"

-- Hub diameter is bigger on the S550 (2015+) than S197 (2014-2005) -- this means the 2015 wheel will go on the 2014 car, but it will not be "hub centered" like it should be

-- Lug thread size is different; pretty sure the lug nuts are different and the taper in the hole is different - so you will need to use 2014 lug nuts in the 2015 wheels; they should fit but there might be clearance issues with the wrench and the taper might not match up exactly

That is very strange that you have rub in the front, with SVT (Ford Special Vehicle Team) wheels and 255/45-18 tires. Any Ford S197 wheel that I know of, should be OK on any S197 car, unless there is something unusual like extreme lowering or super-huge tires. What is rubbing, and what Roush kit are you talking about?
