I have 325s on my 10.5" wheels with room to spare. You could probably fit 325s

I'm sure you could look at what 325 wide is like at a store, some might let u see it on the wheel, all depends on customer service.
Here's my 325s

And what's a good website to look for wheels besides American muscle? The best deal for 19s I found was 19x10 for about $180. I don't think it's wide enough but wider wheels are was more expensive

And EBay
Craigslist
Late model restoration

The 2010-Current body style can handle up to a 20" wheel and look slick. I love fat tires and I think personally the current body lowered with fat tires looks sick, any stang with fat tires looks sick.
The AMR Charcoal are personally my favorite wheels on the current body.

I'd say run 275s up front and 305-325 out back.

---------- Post added at 12:45 AM ---------- Previous post was at 12:16 AM ----------

On a 10 inch rim, I wouldn't personally do a 325. It doesn't fit the rim properly, and the side wall will spill over the rim which I personally hate. It'll work if you like that balloon look though, but if you don't, I would do a 295 or 305. I'm tempted to try a 315, because they look great on 11 inch rims, but I'm not sure how they would look on 10's.

How is it that with a 295 on an 11 wide looks near flush and mine with a 325 on a 10.5" wide I still have room to spare?

Agreed. I run 305/40/18 on my 18x10s and you wouldn't want to go much wider. The amount of sidewall has an effect on how it will mount as well.

Honestly, I wouldn't focus so much on the size. Pick a tire that fits your performance, mileage, and weather needs, then see what sizes are available and what size wheel the manufacturer recommends.

Well said, wider isn't always better, unless the only thing you're looking for is traction. But that also comes down to manufacturer, tread design and the compounds it is made of.

I would also like to say that there are 3 thread right now about tire and wheel sizes that have been posted on within the last 12 hrs lol

Probably the challenge is a good understanding of what offset is needed on a wheel per the width to not rub. If someone has a calculation for this or explanation it could probably eliminate a lot of questions on max width.

Then go find the widest tire you can and see what size rim the manufacturer recommends...

Re: Tire width?

OP,

I wouldn't go any wider then a 305/40/18 like these guys mentioned. Anything wider then that is really pushing it. Plus a 305 looks nice and fat in the rear, you'll be really happy with that staggered stance!

Need some thoughts please, I'm new to forum, I'm buying a Blue 13 GT , & wondered what you all thought about wheel & tire size given the choice of wheels I decided o order the standard painted 18's and will probably just order 18 x9 Cragar 610's. I have also considered just upgrading the whole works to 20" Cragars & 20 tires.

Looking at getting SVE flat black drift wheels (19x9.5) from late model restoration and was wondering if anyone else has these?

I want to stagger the tire sizes: Front: 255/40R19 and Rear: 275/40R19
Can this wheel support both size tires and still maintain a "flush" look between the lip of the tire and the wheel?

I could do a wider tire, but I hate the look when the tire and rim are not flush. Also, I can only find the SVE wheels in 9.5, I wouldn't want to go beyond 285s without bumping up to a 19x10.

On 18x9 275 is flush. So 9.5 285 or 295 should be flush
