My 35-year old Mustang still has those dinky dead stock 14 steel wheels with pizza cutter whitewall tires in the era of Dubbs. I am eventually going to upgrade wheels before those Honda nuts get a good laugh at those granny wheels. I am thinking about using Bullitt wheels off a 2001 to 2003 GT Mustang and there is a adapter kit in the market costing about $299 by several Mustang parts vendors. I am wondering If any one here has used this kit on their Mustangs to do the conversion and if it works with no major modifications to the car and no tire rub.

Using the 1" thick, $300 adaptors is ONE route... If you like the thought of 1" thick, $300 adaptors on YOUR car...

The Bullitt Wheel is simply a copy of the American Racing Torque Thrust. You CAN buy them in the correct size and backspace instead of messing with adaptors. OR, there are several hundred other wheel choices if you'd like to show some creativity... ;)

Ditto what GT350clone said. Why would you bother with added cost of a spacer to put on a copy of a wheel you can buy in the correct sizing to start with::

Someone posted this last week.

If you pull down the application chart (listbox at the bottom) you'll see 65-73 as an option. There is another wheel like this, but I didn't bookmark it. I think it was the same wheel with a different finish. Chrome vs alum polish or something.

I'd get the correct backspacing instead of getting adapters.

Slight tire rub on the front. I rolled the fender wells & all's ok.

DId you use the spacers? I wonder if you can use the bolt on spacers while open tracking??

Yes I used the spacers. I don't know about any racing with them. In over a year I've had no lugs working loose. And no problems with burnouts. I might worry a bit about putting them on the track though.
