those look like they came from american muscle, why didnt you buy the tires from them with free mount & balance?

Re: New Wheels arrive!

Do 315's cause rubbing if slightly lowered on the 18x10?

Re: New Wheels arrive!

^^ thats a loaded question, it all depends on how the spacing is setup and a 315 can vary in width (reality wise)~ but the rim backspacing is the most important part to know~

Re: New Wheels arrive!

I see. It seems a few years ago everyone went with a 315 on the different Stang forums, but now I have been seeing more 295's. Maybe there were alot of issues? So a 295 is a pretty safe bet on a pro kit or Steeda Sport set? I think the 285's look to stretched, like they dont quite fit. Dark Shadows, what brand of tire is the 295 are those. They look like they fit well. Also , what drop are you on?

Re: New Wheels arrive!

in the first pic its about a 2 inch drop(h&r super race springs) with 285's out back, in the last pics its a 295/35r18 goodyear eagle f1 supercar off of the 04 z06, with about a 1.4 or so drop(prokit)

You may see 315 alot for a 17x10.5 wheel.

Re: New Wheels arrive!

Yeah, I think its the 17x10.5 that I am thinking of with a 315. Ok, I like the pro-kit drop and the 295's best. That looks sweet.

You are going to LOVE those on your car. I JUST got mine a little under a month ago & I get head turns everywhere... (here's a link to the thread I posted for pics & suggestions for my car: http://www.mustangevolution.com/forum/t163829/)

As for tires, I went with AM.Com's suggestion of 275/35-18 - However I will be looking for some new tires soon because it rains alot here (Coming From SoCal this wasn't a concern at the time of purchase). Anyone have any suggestions on brand that works well in heavy rain locations?
