70 f100 / police crown vic conversion

I am new to this site so please be gentle.

I am converting an 03 police crown vic to my 70 f100 short bed. Looks ez enough with the help of sites like this and youtube. I am going to put both front and rear end of crown vic into the truck.

I have a question about wheels and tires. I was told that Mustang wheels 05 and newer will work. Does that mean 05-09 or can I use 10-13 also? if I can, why does the ebay helper say that '10 will not work on '06 mustang. Also, what size rims are best for this application? 17"? 18"? Is there a size tire that would be recommended?

I know that doing conversion it lowers the truck a bit and I do not want to have low profile tires. Not looking to slam it. I want to fill the hole and make it look good.

Any help would be great. Thanks in advance.

Hey Paul, welcome to FTE. You'll probably get a lot more response to this if you post it up in the 67-72 section.
