Check out this silver '95 Cobra R Style Wheel for your 1994-2004 Ford Mustang. This has become one of the most sought after wheels in the after market Mustang scene deriving from the amazing 1995 Mustang Cobra R. It features a silver painted finish with a machined outer lip and comes in 17X9" design. Also includes SVE center cap!
This wheel will fit the front of your 1987-1993 Fox Mustang 5.0L using our 5-Lug Conversion kit! We have found that this wheel is manufactured to specifications that allow it to clear the OE type 5-lug front rotor used in our kit. It will not require the use of spacers to fit & the center cap can be utilized without the need for major modification to the factory grease cap. Using a 9" wide wheel on the front of a Fox Mustang may require the use of Steering Rack Limiters to prevent interference issues while turning. The widest recommended tire for use on the front of a Fox Mustang running a 9" rim is a 255/40/17 or 255/35/18. If your Mustang is excessively lowered (beyond 1.5") additional clearance issues may present themselves & will need to be dealt with on a case by case basis. Please contact your sales rep for more details. 1979-1986 5.0L & 2.3L & 1987-1993 2.3L will need to be upgraded with 1987-1993 5.0L struts, spindles, & brake calipers to use our 5 lug conversion kit.

The wheel size is the diameter of the wheel, in inches, not counting the tire.
Modern tires in North America have several other measurements associated with their size.
A tire designated as a "225/70R14" denotes a tire with the following dimensions: width of tread: 225 mm; ratio of tire height to width: 70 percent; rim diameter: 14".
Therefore a 185/70R14 has the same rim diameter and aspect ratio, but a smaller overall diameter and narrower tread face than the 225/70R14.
The easiest way to measure backspace is to lay the wheel face down onto the ground so the backside of the wheel is facing up.
Take a straight edge and lay it diagonally across the inboard flange of the wheel. Take a tape measure and measure the distance from where the straight edge contacts the inboard flange to the hub mounting pad of the wheel. This measurement is the backspace.
The photo below shows three wheels with 2", 3", & 4" backspace.
Wheel Bolt Circle
The bolt pattern or bolt circle is the diameter of an imaginary circle formed by the centers of the wheel lugs. Bolt patterns can be 4, 5, 6, or 8 lug holes. A bolt circle of 4x100 would indicate a 4 lug pattern on a circle with a diameter of 100mm.
The diagram indicates the proper measuring methods. 6 lug wheels are measured like the 4 lug wheels.
The offset, measured in millimeters, can be negative or positive, and is the distance from the hub-mounting surface to the rim's true centerline. A positive offset means the hub-mounting surface is closer to the outside edge of the wheel; a negative offset means the hub-mounting surface is closer to the inside edge of the wheel. Offset affects the scrub radius of the steering and it is advisable to stay within the limits allowed by the vehicle manufacturer. If tires are fitted which are significantly wider than those specified by the manufacturer, a compromise may have to be adopted whereby a wheel with less offset is used to prevent the tire rubbing on the suspension.
Wheel Lug Pattern
Wheel lugs or bolt pattern is merely the number of bolts or lugs on the wheel. As the bolts will be evenly spaced, the number determines the bolt pattern. For example, most U.S. passenger cars have 5 bolts while compact models sometimes have only 4 and pick-up trucks can have as many as 6 or 8.
