Should be OK, but differences in build and stack up of parts will vary, both wheel and brake dimensions.

We test fit my 45 offset slips on a friends '02 SVT, and there was about a 1/16" of clearance between the caliper and wheel. The extra 5mm of offset should be good. If not, you can do a little "polishing" on the caliper to get a little extra piece of mind.

Edit... wait, this is the actual car that was 5th at nationals... details on the car please?!?

Is it a low option car without heated seats, sunroof etc? What front sway bar? Inquiring minds must know. I would keep it in HS, I think the SVT can get it done in this class.
