2016 to 69 Wheel Swap

Anyone have any experience trying to fit 2016 Mustang wheels and tires on a 69?

One thing the 16 has the 69 does not is sealed front wheel bearings. The 69s front hubs with the dust caps run into the newer wheels center cap, at least on the wheels I have tried to use.

Re: 2016 to 69 Wheel Swap

i believe the back spacing is way different and you have to use
wheel adapters/spacers to make it work....

im have 94-04 bullit style 17x9 17x10.5 wheels on my 64
i use wheel adapter ...
front 1" 1/2 and rear 2"...
due to back spacing of rims...
