Need help on Spacer/Adapters (Camaro Related)

Hey guys I have an odd request but it is Camaro related lol

So I bought a 2016 5.0 premium with the black appearence pack which gives it black 19" rims that look great from but are far from good.

I want to put my black 20s from my 5th gen on the 16 stang. Blassphemy? No more like once a Camaro guy always a camaro guy and it will look great on the Stang. Plus its a great conversation starter as it will allow me to tell others I have a 5th gen Camaro lol

So now I know I need the 4.5 to 4.75 adapters, question is how do I find out how thick of adapters to go with?

I know how to do it if you get the wheel on the car, but how if you cant mount it on the car?

If anyone can help it would be really appreciated!!! Basicially for the stock wheels people are using 25mm spacers and some are choosing 20mm for the rear for the stock wheels on the stang. I want to use the Camaro wheels which is a 4.75 bolt pattern but also has more depth to them which is what I want.

Please help

What are the offset of your wheels?
It may be right on the inside of the wheels themselves.

I found the offset of my stock wheels. it is +42.5
On the GTs with my wheels, people are using 25mm spacers to have them sit flush.

The Camaros wheels are front +35mm spacers and the rear +40mm

Not sure what size adapter I would need to have these sit flush on the mustang. Any help would be really appreciated.

Thanks guys

what are the stock wheel width(s) on your 5.0?
How close to flush is it? use a level and measure it.
Between the offset and widths, you should be able to figure out at what point the new wheel is flush. Assume 1/2" or 12mm rim flange thickness for each side of the wheel (ie an 8" rim will measure about 9" outside width)

also, the official BCD for 5th gen is 5 on 120mm (not 4.75) and uses M14 studs/lugs.

keep in mind, that you may have to cut the studs down some if the thickness of the bolt on spacer is not very thick. you need to ensure the vehicle stud does not stick out past the plane of the spacer.
