Re: 225/50/r16

the stock 16" rim on a v6 i believe is a 16" by 7" or 7.5" wheel, and the 225/50 will work just fine, although it will mean a signficant decrease in sidewall height over what you have now...if you go with that smaller sidewall, i might suggest lowering the car or something similar otherwise you will have an even BIGGER space between your tire and fender...might look a little more "monster-truckish" than mustangs usually do

The only problem you will really run into is your speedometer will be off because your tires will be turning over more times per mile than factory, causing "phantom" miles to appear on your odometer and your speedometer not to read correctly.

If you have ponys they are fine I have 245 50 16 on mine so they are okay. It wont throw your speedo off much at all.

Re: 225/50/r16

I have 225/50/16 in the front and 225/55/16 in the back. 225/55/16 is what my car came with from the factory. The only reason I put the 50's in the front was cuz I got a bargain on them...if that is not the reason why you are doing it I can't figure out another reason to change the stock configuration. I would consider putting 50's only in the front to avoid "phantom" miles and the hassle.

Re: 225/50/r16

That's a good deal. If your interested in putting only the front two to keep your car calibrated...I would be interested in purchasing the other two for my front.
