A bit more information within your post is required.. The offset, wheel manufacture, bolt pattern etc.. fill in the blanks and I'll see what I can find for you. Check for the offset or "ET" within the spoke area of the wheel. Also, look for a manufactures mark

Your stock Mustang came with 215/65-16's tires so a 17" upsize would be 235/55-17's , the 225/45-17 tires will not work on your Mustang! You might still be able to use the rims, just mount the right size tires on. You need to check the backspacing and bolt pattern like LIT mentioned. 5-114 BP is what you want.

The list of specs above is what everyone needs when attempting to mount new wheels on different cars/truck etc. Going by one number (17") is not enough.. One needs the offset, bolt patter and more to verify that these wheel fit.. However, if the seller has said or shows images of these wheel on their vehicle which is just like your's, (same year etc) this is a good starting block from which to build upon. In other words, I didn't just slap a set of sparco wheel on my van without checking all the specs first.. this took at least 6 months for accumulate.

If the wheel bolt pattern and backspacing match your car, then yes.
