New Wheels

What's up everybody I recently ordered a set of 4 black 18x10 saleen wheels and I wanted to see what they would look like so I test fit them, I think they are going to look awesome! Tires should be here Thursday or Friday so soon as I get the tires mounted I will update the thread with more pics. I also test fit the wheel on the front (not pictured) and I have about 1/2 inch clearance from the strut so hopefully once the tire is mounted there will not be any rubbing issues but I will let everyone know.

Just wanted up to update the thread wanted to run 275's all around but couldn't take it anymore so bought some used tires 285 out back and 275's up front. If anybody was wondering about clearance with the 10inch rims up front it works there's not a ton of room up there but enough! And now for a few quick pics!

275 on a 10" wheel? Should have saved your money and bought 9" wheels for a tire that small.

AM had the 18x10 on sale I got all 4 for 305 with the forum discount but appreciate the smart *** comment though and although you consider it small 275 is the recommended size for a 18x10 inch wheel.

You're welcome. Hope you don't curb them too bad.

285 is what most people consider the absolute minimum for a 10", that's what I have on my 18x10s and they are too narrow for me.

I have 285's on the rear right now and I really like them but compared to the stock 235's they look really wide! The main reason I went with 18x10 all around was because of the sale it was too good to pass up. I also want to go with a square setup so I will either run 275 or 285 all around when I buy new tires. I know there are a few people on another forum that are running a square 285 setup with no issues. I mainly just posted this thread to state that if anyone is considering a square 18x10 setup that it will work and in my opinion looks good.

The 285s will be super tight. You might rub a little with those wheels.

Yeah the 275's are stuffed I will probably be running 275 when it's all said and done I think a mustang looks nasty with wide tires all the way around.

Hahaha haters, different strokes for different folks but I think it looks badass and I didn't want a staggered setup.

---------- Post added at 09:57 AM ---------- Previous post was at 09:55 AM ----------

Just funny that all these tire experts also told me that the 10's would not fit up front and they did and at the end of the day 275 is the recommended tire for a 10 inch rim

I guess I just don't mind spending money for the right setup. On our gt it's 18x9/10 with 275/295. On the cobra it's 18x9/10 with 275/305. On the 90 it's 15x7 with 235/315. I want the look for my money.

That's the look you want and that's great but not the look I wanted I don't want staggered after I burn up these used tired I will have a square setup with 275's with the recommended wheel size to support them. This isn't a debate over staggered vs squared just wanted everyone to know that 18x10 will fit our coyote mustangs up front.

I don't want to sound like a dick, but if you want a square 275 set up you should not have bought 18x10s, it's just wasted money to run staggered wheels with non staggered tires, not to mention it's bad for the tires to stretch them like you will.

Haha it's not a stretch it's the recommended tire fitment I have 4 18x10 wheels I don't have staggered wheels. Do I really need to post the pic from AMs website again of the recommended tire size for 18x10 inch wheel. Could I have done the same thing with 18x9 yes we're they on sale no. I also feel better about running the 275's on a wheel that is designed to run them.

You can post as many pics from what companies recommend but any forum you go on will say 275s is too small for a 10" wheel. There is a difference between a companies recommendation and people's actual experience.

I guess I just don't understand what you are trying to prove, the wheels fit with no rubbing, the tires are supposed to run on that rim size,and it makes me happy! And I will also have the option of rotating the tires if I choose to. Other than just trying to prove me wrong what are you adding to the thread?

Haha well either way I appreciate it and I have had no luck finding the achilles tires in 275/40/18 on ebay. Maybe it's just not meant to be but I just really wanted to try them if they are good enough for daigo saito should be plenty good enough for me!!

I'm not trying to prove you wrong. I'm just saying almost no one will recommend 275s for a 10" tire. Optimal tire size is between 285-305

Okay I gotcha, to me the 275's fit pretty good and don't really look stretched but that's just my opinion. I appreciate the feedback that's what the forum is for is to give opinions and try to help each other out.
