18x10 square setup

What's up everyone so AM has the 2010 matte black gt500 wheels on sale this month specifically the 18x10's they say rear only but my question is can they be run as a square setup with 275's. I have done a little research and it looks like people have done it with amr's and the sve drifts. But I could not find anything specific to this particular wheel. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I have a base 2013 mustang gt no brembos and lowered an inch on p springs. Thanks in advance.

Yea don't run those in the front. If you want 275 run them on a 9 inch rim and for your back run them on a 10 inch

I was hoping to do a square setup so I could rotate and hopefully prolong the life of the tires. I may just spend the extra coin and get 4 nine inch wheels and run 275 on those but was hoping to get out cheaper if possible.

I can't say I've seen anyone run the 18x10 2010 GT500 styled rims in the front. As you mentioned I've seen members do this with AMR's, but some of them had rubbing issues. If you're at the stock ride height you'll probably be okay, but I'd try to find another member who has already done this particular setup before.

Good luck with your search!

Yea do that. 10 inch in the front is kinda silly for a car that isn't on the track

+1 and looks dumb since it's not staggered.

You will rub, but if you run coil overs you can pull it off. 18x10s up front would do wonders for your handling on a road course

I think 10 squared looks sick. I will be going 18x10 on all 4 when I get my new wheels/tires. I will be using them as track tires true, but that doesn't change the fact that they look good AF. Not silly or dumb IMO.

If you want to run 18x10 all the way around with 0 issues, you can swap out your front suspension to an SLA style one..... It's why corvettes run huge tires... You can SAFELY run a 305 up front... And a couple more rear suspension mods will allow you to SAFELY run a 305 in the rear under STOCK sheet metal
And a note from the manufacturer's website : Larger sizes will also fit

Lol might as well be :p

I like how unlike everyone else, they don't keep the stock style geometry... They completely change it :p
I think it's intense
And don't even lie. 305s all the way around are pure sexy

Lol I was just trying to get a setup for cheap and just over 400 bucks for wheels was sounding real nice. I am just going to save the extra coin and go with 18x9's with 275 all around. I appreciate everyone's input and am glad I asked before purchasing because I would have cost myself more money down the road.
