what size rims and what size slicks for 2005 GT?

Warning! swedish spelling dissorder

since the "mustang world" is bigger in the states and i am tired of searching in swedish forums for things that i would not find anyway...

this might be a simple question but no one has been able to give me the answer.
what size rims can i fit on my mustang and what size drag slicks will fit well on that rim? i want to go as low as possible for the rim size, maybe 15" and as wide as possible for it to hook up well.

my 2005 GT is lowered 1,5" its a stick shift and i am going for 175hp shoot of nitrous, 3.73 or 4.10 gears and upper + lower control arms in a close future since the roads will be covered in salt anyway...

oh one more question, what hight is the best for 3.73 gears and for 4.10 gears?


I hope its undersandable and that someone can give me the answer Thanks

I would go with a 15x8" rim with a 275 wide tire. You can use a 15x10" rim if you install the LCA relocate brackets and do a Little trimming.

I ran 15x10 wheels with 295 tires on my 05, with 28" dia tires. Bob is correct, you'll need the swaybar relocation brackets for a 15" wheel. The back spacing should be 7.5" or less. As for the gears 410s if your gonna track it regularly, if not 3.73s, 4.10s sux on the streets.

Wow ok, thanks for the answers! So if I go with 15x8", 7-7.5" backspace wheels I can run about 10" wide slicks without doing anything else to the car if thats the case, what rims can you recommend? I think I'll just stick to back wheels fir know.
