Question 18 X 10 wheels for Mustang with Brembo brakes?

Hi Guys,

Do you know of any lightweight 18 X 10 wheels that might fit a Mustang with Brembo brakes? (square set up). With that set up, do you think that it might rub on the front with 285 wide tires?. How good is the handling?

I don't have a squared setup, but I do have forgestar f14's in 18's and brembo brakes. I run an 18x9 with a 255 front 285 rear, but I don't see any reason a 285 could fit upfront, with proper offset.

Depending on the offset you might be able to run a 305 up front. There is a guy doing it with 20" rims. 305 on all four corners.

For autox I am running 18x9.5 enkie pf01s with 295/30 Hoosiers with no issues. The offset is 45 if I remember correctly. Others are running the forgestars 18x10 on all four corners as well, this is what I wanted but they were backotdered and I didn't want to wait. Not sure what tire size tho.

I have a set of OEM Roush 18x10" wheels for my track tires. They clear Brembos, not what I'd call super lightweight though...

Except you don't have Brembo brakes on the rear just regular GT brakes so yes of course they fit.

285's would definitely fit in the front. The Roush comes with 275's stock on all four corners, so like others have set, with the right offset, you can go pretty wide. I know the Roush's have a steering stop that reduces your turning radius, but keeps you from rubbing in the front.
