Performance Package Wheels

would love to have new set of wheels and tires but on a budget right now and ived seen people put spacers in their performance package wheels. not very sure about the spacers but am definitely interested in it for the meantime. do you do the spacers in the rear wheels only or on all fours? would it cause rubbing at the rear if you are lowered and rubbing in the fronts when you are cornering? your input would be highly appreciated.

Why mess with them? The only real purpose for spacers would be to clear brakes. The stock wheels already have that covered. Pushing the wheels out obviously puts you more at risk for rubbing the tires. That's why using the correct offset is important. IMHO save your money for a set of tires that are a bit wider than stock. In the meantime, enjoy it as is. Coming from someone who has owned eight Mustangs, don't change things just to change them.

BTW, what's wrong with the wheels? They look great on the Track Package.

dont get me wrong but i love them also its just that the stance when lowered and the wheels are tucked in are a little bit off for me. but i love your input and might just pull the trigger on a new set rather than playing around with it. thanks and appreciate it.
