    They will bolt up but the offset is wrong. They won't look right IMO.

    What is the width of the rims?

    I'm running modern mustang (2003/2004)wheels on my 71. I need to run a spacer though to space them out correctly to 0 offset (my 17x8s) or staggered (my 17x9s, which I run more backspace in the front than the rear)

    I run 1" bolt on spacer in the back and 15/16" in the front. That allows me to use the 17x9 03/04 wheels. The 17x8s fit great with them too. Those are Konigs, and they have a slightly different offset.

    In the front I had to turn the rotor on a lathe so the leading edge of the register would fit inside the Mustang Rim.

    But I can take everything off and still run std Mopar wheels with no problem, too.

    Top 2 are 17x9 03/04 SVT Mustang wheels with 275/40 Kumho Victoracers.

    Bottom are 17x8 Konigs with 245/45 Sticky Street Yokohamas.
