New Rims on an old car?
I can't fit the new style mustang rims on my 68. There are some clearance issues. The center of the rim on a new mustang is way out towards the outside of the rim almost and the old style is more towards the middle. Do I have to special order them? Anybody run into this problem before?

Nice. Yea I was thinking about getting custom wheels because there are a few companies out there that make awesome rims and will make them for any car. So because you swapped the rear suspension with a IRS you only had to put spacers in the front?

This is exactly what I have been looking for. I have a 03 cobra and my buddie has a 1972 fastback mustang. I just switched rims on my cobra to the OEM 03 Cobra chrome wheels, And i gave my buddie my Factory OEM machined 03 cobra wheels for his 1972 fastback. I know its not going to be a direct bolt on, but at least we know its possible!! Thank you for posting this. Also, he was thinking of purchasing the 17x10.5's from AFSwheels.com for the back and running the factory 17x9's up front. Cant wait to see if everything will come together.
