Yes, you can put wheel spacers on a Mustang. High-quality spacers won’t negatively affect your car. When the rims and tires are not ideal for your car design, the Ford Mustang spacers will be helpful. They will move your wheels outwards from the corresponding vehicle hubs, hence reducing the offset. In this case, Mustang S550 spacers are the most cost-effective solution to prevent tires from hitting any other suspension components. Making the Ford Mustang spacers match your specific tires provides a safe fitment as well as an excellent appearance.
With the development of modern manufacturing technology, high-end Ford Mustang S550 wheel spacers are made as light as possible. The added weight is really insignificant. This means installing proper Ford Mustang wheel spacers won’t affect acceleration and fuel consumption. In other words, if you just add Ford Mustang spacers, there should be no difference before and after. As the tires are more evenly loaded, you will experience a faster acceleration response when coming out of a corner.
Should I Shorten Stock Studs for Mustang Wheel Spacers?
Generally, you don’t need to cut stock studs for Ford Mustang wheel spacers. If your wheel pockets are deep enough, you can install 15-25mm Mustang spacers with no problems. The wheel pockets depth + spacer thick ≥ stud length, then the wheel spacers will fit properly. Giving an example, if the depth of the wheel pocket is 10mm, and the OEM stud length is 26mm, then installing 25mm (1″) Mustang wheel spacers will perfectly fit (10+25 ≥ 26). As long as there is still enough thread length, it is safe to cut wheel studs for Mustang spacers
