Will a set of 07-08 GT500 wheels 18x 9.5 +45mm offset
w/ DUNLOP SP SPORT 9000 TIRES, Size 265/ 35/ 18
fit on a 2008 Mustang GT properly?

The wheels are a bit wide, but will there be any issues clearing the brake kit and will they properly fit w/ in the wheel well w/o any issues?

That's a pretty short tire. I hope you are lowered or else the wheels look short.

Wheels will fit and clear Brakes nicely. However, I agree with gmam
here. The 265/35/18 are a full 2" smaller in diameter than the stock wheel size. This will produce HUGE WHEEL GAP. I would suggest something like a 275/45/18 or 285/40/18 in the rear and 255/45/18 up front for starters.

You could also go 275/40-18 (all four corners) as Roush stangs are.

275/40/18 is still a little short. The Roush is lowered. You have 2 ideal choices. 255/45/18 on all 4 corners or 255/45/18 front and 285/40/18 rear. This is a common staggered set-up and is standard on the 07-09 GT500
