Wheel Size

I have the chance to get a set of Cobra Wheels (Polished) for my 88 Mustang GT. Two of the wheels are 17x10 and the other two are 17x9. My question is would these scrub, and how far would they stick out? I dont want them sticking far out from the fender well l, and I would assume that it would'nt be that big of a difference, and it would'nt give that drag car wide rear narrow front look. I thought it was a good deal for $200 since the wheels are in very good condition, but if they wont fit my car, I guess it will be a good deal for someone else. Any suggestions or advice?

You will need to measure the backspace on the wheels to know how far they will stick out from the fender. As far as rubbing, that depends on what profile tire you plan on using.
