Thinking of ordering a custom set of Forgestars

So I'm thinking of ordering a custom set of Forgestars for my 2012 5.0 w/Brembos. I'm currently running RTR's and they're great for daily driving. The only thing that sucks is the fact that I can't really run anything wider than a 275 as the wheels are 9.5" wide. I do a lot of autocross and some track days here and there. I want to do a 19x10 square setup, but I'm just trying to figure out what offset will work best. I'm thinking a +40 might work?

Give Howey Industries a call about the Forgestars....they will know exactly what offset you would need....I run Forgestar CF5's in a 19X9.5 all the way around...+35 offset....with 285/35/19's...car is lowered in the rear only...no problems.

You can run 285's on 9.5" wide.

But I agree our cars need 10+" wide rears so you can something like a 305 in the rear.

If you don't find any answers, then shoot the guys at Vorshlag an email/call. I believe they are the foremost experts on fitting maximum width wheels in the wheel wells for racing purposes. Their Mustang team car has had wheels all the way up to 11" wide in the front and 12" wide in the rear under the stock fenders. Of course, those were all for 18" diameter wheels, but I don't doubt they could help you with the 19s. I actually asked them myself about running 19s for race purposes and they advised against it.

If you decide to go down to 18s, which are better for racing anyway, they have a package for 18x11 at all four corners with custom offsets for just over $1,400. The offsets are not published publicly though because they spent a lot of time and money testing fitments.

Exactly what I was about to say. Give Jon a call over at Vorshlag, and he will help you out.
