With an S197, Saleen pushed their factory wheels to the edges of the fender lips.

Any wheel spec'ed for an S197 Mustang will work. What you want to avoid are wheels that are around 7-8" wide and around +25. These will shoot beyond the fenders.

Rear 20x10, front 20x9. Anything smaller may need a spacer to offset the difference

I have a 2005 S281 with aftermarket wheels (Drag DR37). All 4 wheels are 20x10 +41 with 275/35R20. The tires stay just inside the top of the fender with a little room to go wider in the rear. I am considering 305/30R20.
