S550 rims on a mark!

Postby Wrenchpowervii » Wed Dec 06, 2017 6:32 pm

alright guys it's time to start posting my Mark 7 Adventures.so I had my heart set on running a set of 18 x 8 2017 Mustang wheels but the offset is all wrong. so to correct that you need to run a half inch 2015 Maximum Motorsports Mustang non bolt on Wheel spacer #mmw-7. you'll need 3 inch wheel studs which is 1 inch longer than stock and your good to go.if this topic gets any attention I'll be glad to answer any questions as I took a lot of measurements and can get into more detail with anyone who wants to.

Would be interesting to see. I would absolutely insist on bolt-on adapters though that have the second set of studs. I believe this to be a stronger, more secure option as long as the adapter material is good quality billet aluminum. What is the backspacing of the S550 wheel? Our stock lace/BBS style wheel has a backspace of 5".
