Gump, the 4 lug mustangs have a 4X4.25 lug pattern, which is actually a 4X108 lug pattern, I've double checked on several websites and all of the info points me in the same direction. The pattern should be the same.

As for the way the car looks, I really don't give a crap about that. There are plenty of cars at the Autocross meets that I go to that have the wheels sticking out like a Tonka truck. My real concern is the adverse nature of the offset, and how much wheel rub should I expect. In autocross, there are sometimes turns demanding 1 1/2 turns of the steering wheel which leads me to believe that I may get some rubbing on the side of the front wheel wells.

Still, has anybody tried this? I'm really curious if they have.

Michael Delaney: Well, it better be.
Lisa Belgetti: But what is so important about driving faster than anyone else?
Michael Delaney: Lotta people go through life doing things badly. Racing's important to men who do it well. When you're racing, it's life. Anything that happens before or after is just waiting.
