Well, I'm currently running FSP in autocross which allows upto a 225 (wide) DOT approved tire. In fact, the 16 x 8's should fit that perfectly. I know what you mean about the rubbing, I expect that may be the case.
Do you really think I'm going to need longer studs on the wheel hub? In any case, I'll try my theory out at a Junk yard, hopefully I can find one that has both cars and wheels available for fitment.
Has anybody tried this though? Just curious.
the width of the wheel isn't the problem, there are planty of foci with 8 inch wheels.
Unfortunately, the offset of the mustang wheels is more neutral, verses the foci, which are positive.. this means the wheel center on you mustang wheels is more in the actual center of the wheel, and that brings more of the lip out towards the fender...
It will end up looking a bit like those silly honda civics with the tires sticking completely out of the fender that were popular with the kids back in the 90's (not that bad, but you get the idea)
