Question Will those 18 inch wheels fit on my stang???

Here is the INFO: 18x9in,the lugs;5x114mm ,Offset;40.

40 MM offset is a little over 6 1/2" back space for a 9" wheel. Most 9" wheels for our cars are about 6" BS. It may go in so much, it wouldn't clear your caliper and the caliper would hit the wheel. I know it wouldn't work on a Cobra front.

I see.I know those wheels are not originally design to fit to my stang. So could i add some quality spacers(H&R) to free up some space? Is that good for the long run? Cuz the price is damn right and i like those stlye too.


Thanks!!!

Spacers run in the $150-$200 range. That might offset the deal you are getting, it is up to you.

you can find H&R spacers here

Thanks for the help! I finally decide to buy those wheels and get some spacers to correct the offset.
Here is my question:For the spacers;How wide should i run? I am confused.
