What size off tires??????

Ok people I'm gonna buy some new wheels for my car is a 2001 mustang Gt.
17x9 front
17x10.5 back
So my question the 315/35/17 would work just fine on these wheels????
Or I need to get a different size?????
Any advice will be good

yeah 245 or 265 in front would be fine and you should run 315/30/17 in rear

If your car is lowered then 315s won't fit without rubbing under compression unless you roll the quarters. I have an '02 GT with 305/40/18 rears and they are pushing it and I even have Nitto 555r which are notorious for running a bit smaller than advertised. And I have rolled quarters.

Just my two cents. Also I did go with a 305/40 tire so my tire is pretty tall. If you went with a 30 then it'd fit better but you're sacrificing sidewall protection.

Yeah. It looks like you run a 30 height so you won't have many issues. I run a 40 height so it's a bit taller which is where you get issues.

If you go with a 35 or smaller then you can almost drop it as low as you'd like. Mine is roughly a 2" total drop all around so it's pretty close with 40 tall tires.

Just keep in mind you won't want to drop your car too low for a whole host of reasons.
