    ✓Bolt Pattern: 5-114.3mm or 5x4.5"
    ✓Offset: 39mm;
    ✓Center-Bore: 63.4mm;

    All the dimensions look right, but caliper clearance does vary by the specific wheel in question. You have a Gen 4 SHO, 2010-12, which has 13" rotors.

    With a spacer 17s could be an option

    I usually see Ford giving 4 inches of clearance minimum over the largest rotor size for a vehicle line. So 13" rotors, minimum 17" wheels. That kind of thing.

    Thanks - that’s good feedback and valuable insight. So the 18’s I mentioned could work based on offset needed, without the need for spacers, if I’m understanding you correctly?
