05-06 wheels on an '00 V6?

I'm looking at upgrading my 15" stock wheels to 17"s. The 05-06 bolt pattern is the same as the 00's, but the offset is different by 20mm. How much do you think that will affect the fit? Has anybody done this replacement yet? I'm worried about: a.) how it will look cosmetically with the different offset, and b.) if there will be any mechanical issues (rubbing, scraping, etc.).

05-06 wheels on an '00 V6?

I'm looking at upgrading my 15" stock wheels to 17"s. I'm currently looking at some 05-06 take-offs. The 05-06 bolt pattern is the same as the 00's, but the offset is different by 20mm. How much do you think that will affect the fit? Has anybody done this replacement yet? I'm worried about: a.) how it will look cosmetically with the different offset, and b.) if there will be any mechanical issues (rubbing, scraping, etc.).

I had actually been wondering about this for a while myself. I found a good deal on a set of four wheels/tires from a wrecked 2005 GT, but I didn't get them because I wasn't sure if they'd fit correctly on my 03 V6.

I've got pics, if I can get them uploaded, of a 6 in Sidney, NE that has 05 v6 "Halibrand" wheels on it.

i know the pattern is the same, but I can't say anything re: offset.

I don't like the new bullitt style wheels as much as the old ones .. .

Woe to him who builds his palace by unrighteousness,his upper rooms by injustice,making his countrymen work for nothing...Does it make you a king to have more and more cedar?Did not your father have food and drink?He did what was right and just,so all went well with him. He defended the cause of the poor and needy,and so all went well...But your eyes and your heart are set only on dishonest gain,on shedding innocent blood and on oppression and extortion.

If it's a good deal, if they don't fit, sell 'em on ebay for a profit!
