Will 19" GT wheels fit?

I'm thinking about a set of Stock 2015-2017 GT Performance Package wheels with Stock tires for my Mach1. I'm not sure if the offset and backspace and the fact they are taller will be an issue. They are 19X9 with 255/40R19 front and 19X9.5 with 275/40R19 rear. Has anyone ever tried to run these on a Mach 1 ???????

Thanks for the help in advance

They might bolt on. But I think they have some pretty deep offsets. What are the stock tires?

They are 19X9 with 255/40R19 front and 19X9.5 with 275/40R19 rear, made by Pirelli. They are take offs from a new 2016 Mustang GT.

Re: Will 19" GT wheels fit?

The '05 and up cars have a more positive offset (push to the inside) than our cars. I would be mainly concerned with strut and suspension clearance. Obviously the normal fit issue you can look at, but I would see if I could find a set to test fit first. A set of H&R bolt on wheel spacers would push them out to where our wheel offset is.

Are you going for the looks or do you think the tires will perform better than what you have now?

I like the looks of the wheel and thought it would be an option for my Mach 1. I don't think I will bother with spacers, I will stick with what I have. Thanks for the info.
