Are you talking about on the front or rear? Ther are a few different backspacings available, which are you trying to fit? Mustangs Plus sells and uses a set of 17x8 on a few of their cars, but they won't tell me the exact dimensions of the one that does fit.

There are many companies that sell wheels individually and the torqs come in a lot of backspaces without having to pay extra. Going all the same lets you use the same tire and rotate them.

The ones Mustangs Plus sells are prt# 505-7867. They are 4.75" backspacing. I have them on my 66 coupe and I am lowered 1.5" all around. I run 234/45 tires in front and 245/45 in the rear. I did trim the lips because I drive agressively and wanted the extra clearance.
