2000 mustang new wheels

Have a 2000 v6 mustang, I want an aggressive stagger. I'm getting the 18" Saleen wheels. I also want to put a set of nittos on. I was thinking 18x9 front with 275/35/18. And would this work for the rear? 18x10s rear with 305/45/18s? I'm going with nitto 555s would that be safe for my v6?

Re: 2000 mustang new wheels

not true, you wont have to roll fenders... but your in the wrong size tire. the rears should be a 35 profile, not a 45. maybe even a 30

I love my nittos for DD. I have only put like 1000 - 1500 miles on them, but they have been fantastic.

Lol! I've been doing the same thing, I can't get it to roll under. Maybe I'm not hitting hard enough. Don't want to chip the paint.

Eff the paint.... Nobody would see it down there... Just used touch-up paint where it chipped. I still run every now and then though... Probably my control arms...
