Later Model Wheels on Classic.

I have a 1965 Mustang GT Fastback. What do I need to do to put late model
stock wheels (ie. Bullit wheels) on my car? Spacers? Thickness? 5 lug
spacing correct?

Thanks!

Yes, you need spacers. Many Mustang parts houses carry them. They
bolt onto the existing studs and have their own studs to match the
metric spacing of the late model rims. I believe they go for upwards
of $200 for four.

Hi James. I bought 1.25" spacers to put 2003 17x8 Mach 1 wheels on my '69
Mach. It has more fender clearance so the extra 1/4 inch looks good. I think
1" spacers would be good on an earlier car. I also have a set of 17x8 bullit
wheels and the back spacing is the same as my machs. I bought my spacers on
ebay for 67.00 a set.

Re: Later Model Wheels on Classic.

Why not use wheels that were meant to go on your car?

Re: Later Model Wheels on Classic.

I believe it depends upon the wheels and the size, as well as any
changes you might have made to suspension, drivetrain, brakes, etc.

.. My 65 16x8" rims and 225/50Z16s (could have gone to 245s on the
rear) and no spacer was required.

You may find, since they have become so popular, Bullitt wheels in the
correct size and backspacing so you can just bolt them on as mine did.
Of course, that's using aftermarket wheels as opposed to OEM wheels.

I love torque thrust 2s but bought my late model mach1s and bullets for
about 100 bucks each plus 35.00 each wheel for spacers.

Re: Later Model Wheels on Classic.

I got my Vintage 40s at about 50% off direct because they were blems,
though you have to look really close to find what's wrong. That freed
up funds to use in other areas of the restoration and modifications.

Ya gotta save where ya can. My set cost around $600 IIRC. The
difference paid for a complete front suspension rebuild, or the
Flaming River steering box.

Gotta love it. The thriftier you are now, the cooler you are later.
