    I just mounted black OE Concept bullitts on my '94 GT, and the front 18x9 stick out past the fenderwell approximately 1/4"...is this normal?
    Also, the rear 18x10s don't seem to stick out far enough...

    I'm just spoiled w/ my 17x8 & 17x11 XR LeMans, they fit 100% perfect.

    One more question, how easy is a rear (stripped) stud replacement?

    Ummmmm, we really cant help you without pics.

    Besides, the Bullitts were designed for the 99-04 Mustangs....so issues on the SN95's wouldnt be surprising.

    To replace ur stud just pound the ****r out with a hammer... then.. put the new stud in (you may have to remove the axle if you'rs going with 3" studs) and put the lugnut on it and tighten it till its all the way through. Very simple process.

    Hope this helps.

    looks badass btw...

    They don't look to be sticking out too much in the front to me, if anything, get some spacers to get the rears to match that so it will be uniform.

    Great minds think alike, the spacers were on my list!!! Where do they sell those universal spacers nowadays??

    Thanks for the compliments, I've been after this look for quite sometime...
    Oh yea, my stock '96 GT 'vert looks like an 11 sec car w/ the XR LeMans installed ;)

    DO NOT get the universal spacers they're slotted and are not made exact for your bolt pattern. Get the ones made for your car. The slotted ones tend to shimmy/shake/viberate real bad.

    BTW the car looks great~!

    No no don't get 1" that will throw your rears out way too far, get a 1/4" spacer from Maximum Motorsports.

    BTW your car looks really good!

    That is "THE" cleanest SN-95, I would say to match your front wheels get 1/2" hubcentric spacers .. More pics please! :beer:

    I think it should be in a magazine, I'd like to see it in Modified Mustangs, very clean and nicely done 5.0!
