I've seen 20s, but anything about 18 should be illegal imo.

You talking about width or height?

Re: 2001 V6 MUSTANG

Yep, they'll fit. In the rear.

I've never seen anybody with anything bigger than a 9 wide up front. I have 17x9s, and don't rub at all, even with a drop, but other people do. I imagine with 10 wide, you'd have a real rubbing issue up front.

I would yes. 18x10 is too big for the front. 18x9 is perfect for the front.

Re: 2001 V6 MUSTANG

A lot of people run deep dishes in the back only, I think that's how they're supposed to be..

I don't think it would be possible to fit a 10 up front and maintain drivability, but I know 9s do. So I agree with Brent, 18x10 in the rear, 18x9 in the front.

Re: 2001 V6 MUSTANG

for an 18x10 rim you must run a 295-315 tire at least for the front 18x9 you really should run a 275/35/18 or a 265/35/18 NO smaller.

Re: 2001 V6 MUSTANG

18x10 all the way will rub your front tires if you drop the car at all

Re: 2001 V6 MUSTANG

For a simple solution and better tire wear and life run 18x9 rims all around and be done with it. Run a 275/35/18 tire so your rims will have protection from the tire incase you hit a curb and plus they just look better. Which rims were you considering again, the AFS brand deep dish bullits?

Just a FYI, listen to these guys, especially about tire size. I have the black bullits on my car(17x9 up front and 17x10.5 in back). I didn't want to wait for tire kingdom to order the correct size tires so I had them put on 285 in back and 255 up front (which is what they had in stock). I sure do wish I had waited because now 3 out of my 4 rims have curb rash. Pretty expensive lesson to learn because I let my inner child "gotta have it now" take over my thinking! BTW, i think those rims will look great on a white stang, I really like the way they look on my silver one.

Re: 2001 V6 MUSTANG

If you do not mine aligning the car more often, getting Caster/Camber plates if your front tires begin to wear off (due to you cant rotate front to back or side to side) and you dont mind the price tag (which is steep) or the low tread life then you can stagger the rim sizes so you run wider out back.

For a 9 inch wide rim a 275 width tire is a MUST if you are worried about rubbing then you dont need a 9 inch rim, they wont rub on the if spec'ed right (ford backspacing/offset) and for a 10 wide I would run a 315 if it was me to be safe and have it look good. In the end what is the point of running wider rims out back if you are not going to put the rubber on them to use the extra rim size. It may be costly but its how its done right, and curb rash blows

The problem with the 18x10s youre looking at is the offset and backspacing is not correct for the front of your car. They look good on the back, because they have the correct offset to set the wheels flush with your fenders. Deep dishes would look good all around, but the wheels youre looking at arent made to be used like that. Some companies do make DD front wheels as well, with the correct backspacing. I have a buddy in KC that runs 10.5" rims up front and he doesnt rub. The wheels are custom made wheels though and cost up to 500 or more each...

With those black DD bullitts, just get the DD on the rear... it'll look good on white, trust me

315 is a bit big on a 10" wheel. I wouldnt run anything smaller than a 295 though for sure. I run 295's on my 18x10s and they bulge out a little bit and have plenty of protection for the rims. Also the type of tire you get makes a big difference in how wide they actually are. From my experience, Ive noticed that BFG, and goodyear tend to be wider than the size states, and Nittos and falkens tend to run a little smaller than the size states. go with at least a 275 on a 18x9 wheel, and at least a 295 on a 18x10. Bigger tires wont hurt either

Re: 2001 V6 MUSTANG

Hey there, I have 17x9 svt cobra rims on my v6. Here's some pics. I have Evo-Z tires... veryyy nice tire, very sticky. They are 275/40's. I am about 1/8th of an inch from rubbing. They stick out the front about 1/4inch but looks very aggressive. In the back, they come about 1/4inch from being flush with the fender (they are still inside). Car looks good. Heres some pics.
