Rim Opinions .. please ..

looking for new rims for my 03 silver Mustang GT (pics in sig link)

was thinking about 17s, w/a 10.5 in the rear ?? but, I'm opinion to ALL opinions...

trying to purchase a KB 1.7 supercharger .. 400 rwhp+ coming soon ..

so, I want a rim and tire combo that will help on the street .. not just all for looks...

thanks!

depends on your style, www.gefracing.com ( for rims) www.tirerack.com (for tires)

The roush stage 3 18s are NICE but far far to expensive.... if you want to stay in a 17 inch... then an 03 cobra/steeda ul I's/ there are others just look and see what you like..

I would highly recommend not gettnig 10.5s out back unless you dont mind buying a huge 335mm wide tire~ else its RATHER STUPID to buy 10.5s out back...why buy the wider rim if you aint gonna use it..

and not rotating is very bad... you get horrible road noise and all sorts of issues so you would have to keep her aligned, and get some GOOD cc plates to monitor the adjustment due to the stock cc plates cant be adjusted.... try to keep it 17x8 or 17x9 all around.

I'm going to NEED a good performance tire in the rear .. have a KB supercharger coming soon .. 400+rwhp .. I just want to be able to stick to the ground. Thats why I was thinking of a 10.5 in the rear, w/a 315

you WONT stick to the ground no matter what street tires you put on the car, the only thing you can do is buy some track rims/tires for track only use and just get street tires and live with it.

a 315 is to narrow for a 10.5

i'm guessing you want a 10.5 mainly cuz it'll look flush in the fender well?

just get a 17x9 and get some h&r 1" wheel spacers like i did for my 8". it's nearly flush now and with a 9" it looks almost completely flush.

As for wheels I dunno there so many out there to pick from

but seems like our buddies here are forgetting that you can buy yourself some Nitto 555Rs for the rears to help stick to the ground.

I bought Falkens for the front and Nittos in the back. Majority of the V8 guys are running Nittos and are very happy with the results. I hope I will be too.
