I am considering changing my wheels on my 2005 GT Convertible. There are a few styles out there that I like. I am curious if the following wheel would really fit a 2005 GT with the stock tires? The ad says it will, but I notice it has a 17X9 size and not 17X8 and a different offset.

What wheels have others put on their GT's?


Thank you for your help in advance. :smilie

Thanks,
Jason

i have my stock tires mounted on 17 X 9 wheels from Discount Tire. they work fine. but the tires will wear faster on this size wheel.

I am thinking about getting a set of these:

I like stock look of the rims, and they are deep dish! 18x9 fronts and 18x10 rears.

Do they sell the 06 fan blade rims for the 05 verts.

I like the look of them on the vert.

The anthracite bullitts didn't work for me, I switched to chrome.

Nitto NT-450 275/50 on 17X9.

Don't buy from IDIOTS like that!!!
They are selling wheels and tires for pre-05 Mustangs.
The tire sizes they offer are 245/45/17's which are a much smaller diameter than what comes on the '05 so they look stupid.
Also, as already stated, the offset is wrong and when you combine that with the wider wheel, the wheels will stick out.
STAY AWAY!
There are plenty of "correct" wheels out there for the '05 now.
Stay with a tire that is very close to the stock diameter of 27.2". For 17" wheels that would be 235/55/17's or 255/50/17's.
