Looking for someone who has put the 03/04 Mustang Mach 1 wheels on a 1989 or similar year model Ford Ranger. They are 17x8 with 30mm offset and have 245/45/17 tires. Can someone tell me what if any spacers I will need for front and rear?

Not exactly Mach 1, but very similar.

Here's one with actual Mach 1s out there on the interwebz, but who knows how long the listing will last.

I personally think they look good on the square body Rangers and was going to put them on my first gen. Now I think I'm going to put them on my 99, and do a more true Magnum 500 (inspiration for Mach 1 wheels) style wheel on the First gen. I'm probably going aftermarket on the 99 though, either 17x9 or 18x9, which is probasbly too much for an older square body Ranger.

These Mustang wheels are the same specs, I have 1.25" hubcentric adapters on my 09. I had to trim a bit from the studs on the rear axle, the front studs were fine. Tire centerline location is correct for the 98+ body style. I would expect you to need the same thickness on the earlier years, since the stock offset was pretty much the same throughout the years.

HA! I know who purchased that 1992 ranger. It's in excellent shape
