Steering stops?

Hey guys! Just a quick question...I am looking at these wheels(link below) and it says that any wheels 8.5 or wider need steering stops on the 2005 Mustang GT. I have read in other sources that you do not need these stops because people run 9 wides in the front and do not need stops. Whoever has these wheels or anyone that can help me... Do you need stops on these wheels? Also if you do need stops, is it because its a 8.5 inch wheel meaning only wheels that have a .5 inch wheels need stops? Thanks much appreciated!!!!

Mine came with the 17's but i want to upgrade to those wheels i showed.
The reason it says that is the offset on those wheels is all screwed up. Those wheels will be way inside the fenders and IMO look like crap. In addition to that why buy aftermarket rims and not get some that have some decent width to them?

Check these out. You could run 9" wide ones out front and 10" out back. And the offsets will have them sticking out closer to the edge of the fenders which will look a LOT better:

I would go with 18x10's at all 4 corners with 275mm wide tires all the way around myself.:bigthumbsup
