Modern mustang wheel fitment?

Will the wheel in the attached image fit my 63 1/2 Galaxie?

According to this referance linked below they are both 5 x 4 1/2 and 70.3 hub center bore.

I'm also concerned about offset. Has anyone fit modern Mustang wheels onto a Galaxie?

Wheel Bolt Pattern Cross Reference Database and Conversion Guide: 5*X*4.5

Thanks for any feedback!

With an inch-and-a-half thick bolt-on 5x4.5 to 5x4.5 adapter, sure.

The S197 Mustang wheels have approx 45mm offset, the larger sizes even more.

Re: Modern mustang wheel fitment?

Wheels were not next on my list but the deal I found on these could not be ignored, plus my old steelies tires are a bit old. Perhaps the deal is too good to be true.
