Rims size

What is the biggest rim you can put on a 5.0
With a stock suspension? No I'm not going crazy and throwing huge rims on was just thinking at most 22s for summer and using my stock brembo rims for winter as the paint quality sucks on them and already has paint chips etc on them. I was thinking either 22s on the front and 24s on the back like nellys dub edition mustang or even all around 22s. The stock set up is 19x 9.5 I believe? So if I wanted 22s they would have to be 22x9.5? If not would I need a spacer? Keeping in mind they need to be wide enough for the brembo brakes. I wanted deep dish black rims but don't know exactly if that would fit.

Sorry for the long paragraph of questions first time getting after market rims. Thanks!

Don't go bigger than 20s on an S197 Mustang, anything bigger looks way to big and makes the ride extremely hard and makes handling and acceleration so much worse because of the extra weight. I personally think 19s look the absolute best on S197s.

20s would look good, you should also go staggered, it will give a nice aggressive stance in the back and help with traction. Just not 22s or 24s..... At the end of the day it is your car and you can do what you want, i'm just giving another perspective.

Well at first I was looking at the black rtr rims they look good and it would make sense as I have 4 all seasons for that rim size. Maybe I'll just stick to those. I'm blacking out my car so that's why im sticking to black rims be nice to get black chrome ones. Next is the Saleen full body kit with power flow hood and roush sc.

Yea I'm with him. Anything over 20 would be too much imo . And if you do 22/24 your tpms would throw a cel if you don't get the right size tires. So you would have to have a taller tire on the 22s to make it the same height of the 24s. I would stick with staggered 19s or 20s

And I think your stockers are 8.5 not 9.5

22's in front and 24's in the rear??? I bet you have to be really strapped in to keep from falling forward in that thing.

If you go any wider than 9" wide up front, you'll have clearance issues when you turn the wheel. Should be fine in the rear though

I would love to upgrade to 20s. For fuel efficiency, lol, but regardless.

You aren't going to get better fuel economy from a larger rim. Just don't donk the car. I wouldn't run a tire any bigger than needed to clear the brakes.

Uh, actually, one does. Its actually pretty simple and well know. On a bigger tire radius, one axle turn goes further. A k a, i can travel the same vehicle speed but have a lower engine speed, and at cruising, use less fuel. It makes a considerable difference.

Yea but usually the weight more than offsets the wheel diameter and you end up losing mpgs anyways

Weights doesn't always offset, caught up with the time and technology, when you get a higher end brand compared to a low end brand a high end 20 could weight as much of less than a low end 16

One pound of rotational mass equals four pounds of regular mass. Realistically, the only time it would matter is accelerating. Making torque to begin rotation of those heavy pieces would take more torque, but that would only start to negatively effect mpg in stop and go traffic and city, like, constant stop lights. For me, ideal weight increase would be less than or equal to 12.15 lbs per tire. For my needs, it would be perfect in that range, and be way more fuel efficient.

Um no. The way to adjust tire revs/engine revs is not advised through tire diameter. That's what rear axle gear ratios are for...and they're much cheaper. As for wanting more weight in the wheel/tire assembly, that's about the most retarded thing I've ever heard for a passenger car...maybe not so much for a semi truck due to increased the increased inertia. You're just going to wear out shocks and other suspension components out more quickly.
