Will these fit?

Anyone know if these will fit a 71 coupe?

Yes they will...you probably need spacers on the front though.

The 94 - 04 wheels on my car needed a 1/2" spacer. You'll need longer wheel studs to use the spacers.

Is there a year of this style that's a direct swap?

Jeff, do you have drums on the front? My 72 has discs and I needed 1 1/2" adapters on the front, 1/2" spacers on the rear.

Aero3113, the answer to that is no. You can buy aftermarket ones with the correct backspacing though, I think American Muscle has them. American Racing wheels are popular.

I have disc brakes. The 94-04 Mustang wheels have a different backspacing than the 05 and later wheels. The fronts (18x9) are +24mm (5.85 BS) and the rears (18X10) are +22mm (6.38 BS). I am running the rears without any spacer on the right rear and 3/8 on the left rear.

Mine are 17x8 off a 2001 GT...I wonder what the discrepancy is.

I tried my 08 Bullitt rims on the 73....the rims fit on the rear fine but looked like I'd need a 1/2" spacer on the front.

I'm going to have to pull my adapters and try spacers. It would be nice if I didn't have to run 1.5" adapters.

Aren't they the same thing?
