Wheels and tires

I found a set of wheels that I’m considering for my 66 Coupe but I don’t know what the backspacing is and the person that is selling them doesn’t know how to measure for it. I’m hoping that someone here will recognize them and be able to give me some information. The picture attached are the wheels I’m considering. I’ve been told that they are off of a 99-04 Mustang. They are 17”x8” wheels with 245/45ZR17 tires.

My current setup is: CSRP Granada disc brake swap, Shelby drop, 8” ford rear end, and 4.5 mid-eye leaf springs in the rear. Does anyone know the backspacing for these wheels and if they will work with my setup? TIA

Give the guy a refundable down payment (and put it in writing), take one wheel home and see if it works for your car, if so, buy the others and if not return it for your refund.

The backspacing on those wheels is about 5 3/4", so you will probably need spacers to run them. Also, you may not be able to install the front wheel center caps because of interference with the dust caps on the rotor. The diameter of the tire shouldn't be an issue, as it is about 25", which is the same as your car's stock tire.

The offset for the 18" factory wheels should be 2".
