    I have a 95 GT and was looking at the 94-98 Saleen style wheels 17x9 with +24mm offset. Im on about 1.5in lowering springs looking for a good stance. I plan on buying coil overs later on. I would be running 245/45/17 tires and was wonder how far out I can safely get my wheels before running into problems. I was thinking about 1/2in spacers all around to fill the gap. What do you guys think?

    It would look fine in the rear but will push the front wheels out too far. Make sure you buy bolt on, hub centric spacers.

    I used the bolt on hub centric 1.5 inch spacer in the rear and had to use .25 of an inch spacer up front to clear my calipers. Im running stock 18inch 5 blades of an 08 or 05 (can't remember) with 275/40r18s. it isn't flush with the wheel wells but very close.
