Re: wheel spacers

Maximum Motorsports :: The Leader In Mustang Performance Suspensions has H&R wheels spacers and they are VERY nice. I would definatly go with them if I picked up any wheel spacers. I am not sure what size would be the best, what rims do you have?

I moved your thread to wheel/tire to help get it more attention.

Re: wheel spacers

I bought trailblazers for one half the price of H&R and they are excellent. The are centric and are machine billet. These guy have a quality product.

Re: wheel spacers

would anything that fits a GT fit the V6 too.

and how do you think the best way is to see how the spacer would look without having it. would measuring from the outside of the tire wall work?

Yes all mustangs share the same basic axles except the Cobra but it can use the same spacers because the wheel pattern is the same.

i had the same question, so here's my story:

i bought my 2006 v6 mustang deluxe back in august. i decided if i was going to buy this car, i wanted the dealer to install the GT wheels(looks like this:http://us.autos1.yimg.com/img.autos....8_346x270.jpg). 3 different people at the dealer said that my mustang could have scraping problems if those wheels were installed. they told me a previous customer wanted those wheels on his car so bad, they made him sign a contract. contract basically said that if there was any problems with those wheels, dealer was not responsible. apparently scraping can occur between wheel and caliper and would need to install wheel spacers. dealer also said that since v6 premium mustang & GT have ABS breaks, this makes difference. so now i'm hesitant on getting those wheels.

i sort of like the GT500 wheels, so i'll ask if my car would have problems with those.

My advice is to go to a dealer who actually knows what they are talking about. The reasoning they gave you has to be some of the stupidest logic I've heard in a long time. If that wheel will clear the larger GT brakes, why would it have any trouble with the smaller brakes on the V6?

God I hate dealerships and they are for the most part morons. We have a member here who has not been around a while who actually worked for a dealership and bought a Mach 1. She noticed tiny circles in her paint which she was told by a couple of paint shop that it was acid rain marks. She went and showed it to the service manager and he said " We cant honor your warranty!!! You have cut a hole in your hood and put on a hood scoop!!!
Well holy crap even the damn service manager did not know what a Mach 1 came with stock

So the moral of the story is. Dealerships sell cars and they want to sell you parts, that is their only concern. You have parts not bought from them they will make every excuse not to warranty it. There are a few dealerships that are actually knowledgeable like Team Ford in Marietta Ga and Gene Evans Ford/Gefracing just south of the Airport in Atlanta. Locally I dont trust any of the slimy bastards in Greenville

Not if you got the proper tire diameter to go with it. My stang came with 15's and now I have 17's My speedo never changed

These are based on stock Mustang rims and keeping the same geometery.

15in rims use 205/65-15

16in rims use 225/55-16

17in rims use 245/45-17

18in saleen rims 265/35-18

Not for 05+.

Stock 17x8 use 235/55/17. Stock 18x8.5 use 235/50/18. Not sure what the 16s use, but since the threadstarter has them stock, he should be able to find out.
