pdq67 had previously posted running mustang bullit wheels and had them redrilled and used a spacer according to a search. I have found replicas for 4-3/4 lug space, 17x8, backspacing is 5.6" will this fit my without spacers, I am figuring that it won't but some input would be appreciated. Thanks, SS

Hi, guy...

I had my (2) 13" front rotors and (2) 11.75" rear rotors, 2 drum hubs, (and a second set of two-piece hubs), and my 12 bolt axles redrilled to the Ford bolt pattern by Mosers.

Plus I went with their 1/2" x 2" screw-in stud bolts for extra strength!! I really need 3" long so am going to get 20 bolts later!!! Then probably cut them to 2.5" or so after checking nut/threads thing....

My new Bullitts are on my car now using 1/2" spacers but I really think all I need to do is put a 45 degree angle on the centering bosses to fit the center of the Bullitts or just leave the 1/2" spacers on my car and forget it...

Tires are 225/45-17's front and 255/45-17's rear AND NOW I wished I woulda went 275's or even 285's in the rear!!!

AND I THINK THE BULLITTS ARE THE NEATEST RETRO WHEEL YET!!!!

I don't care if the suckers are Pony wheels!!!!!!!!

so what do you think about the backspacing? Replica wheel makes them for a 4-3/4 x5 lug so no drilling! but the backspacing is 5.6 seems to be quite a bit. Right now I have stock discs in front and drum in rear with upgrades in the future. How about a couple of pics? Thanks SS

where did you buy your 1/2" spacers?

are they large enought to allow the rim to fit snugly against the drum/hub?
Ineed to either use some type of spacer,or buy a less backspace rim,
I have a pair of 15x8 5"b.s. that with the 9 inch in the car is too much bs,and the stock 4 inch are not enough for 255/60r15's

Thanks ,Lee caveman

I sold my Camaro,hope the current owner drives it.
