My friend is getting rid of her 22in wheels and tires (265/35rr22) and she going to sell them to me for cheap ($500 for 4). She's selling them to me for such a cheap price because I helped her move, not because she's dicking me over. However, I don't know if they will fit on my car 'as is'.

My QUESTION IS: Will I be able to put these on my car without some type of body lift or some other type of work that I cannot not afford? Given that my car is the base model everything, you're right to assume I know nothing about Mustangs.

I think it will look really awkward. You could take those rims from her and then sell them and make a profit though...:scratchchin

How does rims and tires throw off suspension specs? Only thing that can do that is improper lowering.

The best way to find out is to jack up your stang & try on at least (2) of the new pair of shoes. Try on the front pair & fully extend the steering wheel to the right/left to check for tire rub. I have 20s on mine but sometimes I wish I'd gone with 22s in the rear. But I really wanted staggered wheels instead of 20s up front & 22 in back. Just be mindful that both performance & ride quality will gonna suffer with the larger wheel (especially if they're a heavy material like chrome). Trust me, you are gonna feel every single bump on the road.

actually, putting 22's on your car will raise the ride height by over an inch. when you change ride height, camber changes (increased height will cause positive camber, decreased ride height will cause negative camber).
and anytime camber changes, toe changes as well. caster of course will be all screwed up as well.

bottom line, the car will look and handle like a dump truck; and i would hate to be the tech who has to align a 'stang with 22's on it.
