those require some serious fender modifications for them to fit properly.

silver on silver is so blah...

You'll either need to purchase proper RS fenders or have your fenders cut out and weld in some sheet metal then repaint accordingly..

Its fenders are flared out. It has a wider stance

RS wheels have a different offset..the tires aren't as big a factor, I run 225/45/17 Hankooks on stock SVT "49" offset wheels,with very little rubbing on track conditions{high speed,hard cornering /braking}...

I have a set of the RS wheels at work and actually tried to see if they would fit. You can get away with the rear, but the front actually stick out too far to clear the fenders.

So its just the offset that doesnt work?? what size tires do you run on your rims stokedsvt?? and do you have your car lowered or just the stock svt suspension??

there's actually a euro dude if you check out the galleries that has the rs wheels on his zx3. what's sick is that he only put the rs front fenders on and left the rears stock. looks sweet, and very original. don't think anybody has done it before. i'll try to get a link.
clicky here
