I've seen a few running mustang wheels on here esp cobra.. they'll be fine, though my bet is you may need a hubcentric wheel spacer...
 






I run cobra rs with about 2 centimeters of clearance between the rim and steering knuckle. Rim specs and tire size are in my signature
 






I have a set of cobra R's that are 17"x9", but they are a four lug version. I plan on using them for my next fox build. They wouldn't fit of course, plus I have to get them repowder coated. Kazer, if you wouldn't mind. Could you snap a few pics if possible to see how close? Thank you for your info guys.
 






yeah ill get a few pics for ya tomorrow afternoon
 






its a tight fit between the wheel weights and kunckle...can't even get my finger between them

i'd say that 6" is the absolute maximum backspacing you can run on a third gen
 






Thank you for the shots. lol...That is cutting it close, but at least we know we can.
