I only see the wrong bolt pattern offered, but they may fit. Just try a test fit one day. What 's it coming off of?

A 255/45/18 on a 9.5" wide wheel will mean that the offset will have to be 24mm or higher to clear a rolled rear fender.
I wouldn't put a 245/45/18 on a 9.5" wheel because there would be no tire to protect the wheel.
A 245/45/18 on a 9" wheel will mean that the offset will have to be 27mm or higher to not stick out.
BTW, don't question I have got mine as close to rubbing but not rubbing as possible Laughing
These numbers sound wack to most of us on here, but the math works out from what is rolling on my car right now to these numbers. If it's the right bolt pattern and the offsets are higher than these, they will fit as far as outside fender wise. If the offset is too much bigger you may run into problems with the strut perch.

Mustangs are 5x114.3, not 5x115. Not a great idea (look up CentexSS's old thread with 5x114.3 ASAs on his Impala... broken wheel stud city).

I can't believe how many times this has come up lol. If I were you I wouldn't, but try them on and see if you feel and resistance or see that they don't like up perfectly. But like I said, I wouldn't

same stupidity happens on the Charger, Magnum, Challenger, 300 sites. Although they use a thicker stud and can take the abuse, I still wouldn't do it with the added weight and power.

If 5x114.3 was close enough not to matter, wheel manufacturers wouldn't spend thousands upon thousands of dollars tooling up for 5x115 bolt patterns

Just because you can make it work, doesn't mean they fit.

Thing is, they're close enough to work. Until they don't.

It's your car though. I wouldn't want the liability of a wheel coming off my car and striking a person, or even someone else's property. I've seen it happen in person and it's totally possible to ruin a fender in the process, that is, if you don't lose control of the vehicle when it happens.

My brothers Chevy 3500 dually was hit twice on 2 separate occasions by a wheel shearing off the studs.

1 was a girl that lost control after the wheel broke off, $11K in damage to his truck (which was parked) and she had serious injuries.

Other was while driving, wheel snapped off oncoming car, bounced over car in front of brother and plowed into his grille

If the center bore is snug on the hub, you can use wobble nuts and you will be safe.

People in the VW world run bolt patterns as much as 1.5mm different from theirs using wobble bolts.
