    Will the tires on a 10.5 inch rim rub on a lowered new edge? Pics look really close, but it looks like rolled fenders will clear the wheel.

    Depends on the offset and tire.

    The "American muscle" wheel (or whatever Mustang store you use to buy replica mustang wheels) will work for your car.

    If you're looking at something like rovos then you probably need to roll. Can always bust out the tape measure.

    They're going to be 10.5 bullitts. Pictures look really close and I know when I hit bumps my tires will want to tuck just a bit.

    I just went and put a tape measure on my tire. My current wheels are 8inches wide with 245s, but the tape puts a 10.5 wheel about an inch outside of my fenders which I deffinately don't want.

    I'm running a 10.5" wheel with +22mm offset and a 295/35/18 tire and it rubs. I'm rolling my fenders soon.
