i'm thinking about putting a set of mustang cobra wheels on my '69, the only problem is that they have a 5.72 inch backspacing which won't work. my question is, does anyone know what would need to be done to install these on my car? as far as i know everything else is right , 17x8, 5x4.5 bolt circle. Any help appreciated.

Lets see, you could put a wider rear end in it along with some wider front spindles. Don't like that idea? OK get a set of spacers made by a machine shop and get some longer wheel studs. Wait that dosn't sound very safe dose it? Well thats all I can come up with except getting a Mustang Cobra and putting them on it!!

All kidding aside there not a very practical idea for your 69. mm

If you go to Ebay there is a company that sells the cobra wheels with 0 offset in a 16x8. That would put the backspacing at 4.52" do a search on mustang cobra wheels.
