mustang wheels on da EB

hiya,
the other day i saw a black EB XR-6 with 18x 9 mustang saleen wheels!! i was soooooo impressed. ive never ever seen these wheels on a ford before and they look great!
i want some... anyone know if they fit

from the site" The 18x9.0 inch wheel with the +24mm offset should fit properly on the front and rear of 1994 and newer Mustangs. Lowered Mustangs over 2" may experience rubbing in the front at full lock turns."

here is the site fo you want to take alook at them:

Cool! As a general rule, black cars and chrome wheels go together very nicely.

I have never heard of interchangability like this before, but the wheels could be copies, or perhaps they do fit?
