I am just curious, and I have done some searching on this.. I am trying to decide which way to go with my wheels. Stay with 4.25" factory bolt circle and use my original wheels, or, go with the Mustang hub (4.5" bolt circle) and use my old 18x8.5" wheels with 235/50/18" tires from my 2006 GT (50mm offset) If I go the route of the Mustang hubs and these wheels, will I run into any rubbing issues? They will allow me to run the PBR calipers, which I want to do, and stay with the factory size rear rotors for now.

What do you all think?

Everything I've read shows 30-42mm for offset:

Are you doing this solely to run the PBR calipers? If so, we need more info.

You can run PBR GT calipers with your stock wheels.

You only need 17" or larger wheels if you want to use PBR Cobra calipers & rotors.

Use https://www.willtheyfit.com to check your offset. Enter your stock wheel/tire size & offset, then do the same for your other wheels. The site will show you whether the wheel will move in or out.

That tire is around 3/4" taller than stock.
