Svt wheel options

I am looking at getting some diamond racing wheels for my svt. Would a 16x7 with a 4 inch backspace and a 0 offset fit and not rub?

Not likely, since you're starting at about 45 offset a "zero" wheel would make it stick out 45mm..

You will also want to be sure the new (16") wheels clear the front brake calipers, not all do. Good luck.

Stock SVT offset is 49mm. Zero offset will push the tire outward by close to 2 inches (assuming stock wheel width). Without some fender flaring it's highly unlikely it will work.
