2018 Rims on 1965 Mustang

Just thought I'd post this here. I was looking for some new rims and tires for my 1965. I ended up going with a set from a 2018 Mustang 4-cylinder eco-boost.
I needed 1" hub adapters (spacers) for the back
1" hub adapters PLUS an additional 5/16" spacer for the front.

The front would have cleared the upper control arm without the 5/16 if I put changed the wheel weight from the inner lip to a sticky one on the inside of the rim.
The rims are 7.5" wide, with 5.75" back spacing.

Hopefully I can help someone out.
The 347 ci stroker engine that I built made 451hp on the dyno and 440 lb/ft tq. I have the dyno sheets for that.
