Community Q&A Question: 17 inch wheels on a 1979 Mustang

Asking About: Mustang Pony Wheel & Ford Licensed Center Cap Kit - 17x8/9 Silver (79-93)


17 inch wheels on a 1979 Mustang

Will the 17 x 8 wheels fit under the fenders and still steer with the upgraded 1993 15:1 front end?

Will probably run a 225 50 17 tire on that wheel! - A. J. 3 years ago

Accepted Answer
17x8" wheels should work fine on your 79 Mustang. My 1982 GT has 17x9" front wheels with 255/40/17 tires. Steering rack limiters were added to prevent the wheel from contacting the control arm at full lock. 17x8" wheels offer a little better clearance than the 9" wheel.
