New Wheel fitment

I have decided to go with the Shelby Super Snake Black wheels from American Muscle. They are 20x10R 37mm O/S and 20x9F 24 mm O/S with 255-35-20 and 295-35-20 Nitto Invos.. Any thoughts on any possible issues with this setup on a 2015 GT 1" lowered? Tires have about a 7/8 " difference in dia. / height. Should that cause any problems with the ABS system?

There is a car on their website with this setup and it looks like it works OK.. I don't want a wheel to stick out though.

I know the 15s are a different platform than my 14, but I ended up going with a similar setup (20x8.5 255 35 20 up front and 20x10 285 35 20 in the rear)

I also recently lowered her on some eibach sportlines which drop 1.3 up front and 1.7 on rear. I was on the highway doing 80 hitting some decent size bumps to test out the waters, and there were no problems at all. The wheel won't stick out too badly, it will be pretty flush with the fenders though. It'll look good IMO

I'm thinking you'll be fine with this setup. I ran a 275/35/20 with a positive 18 with no issue.

After checking weights I want to go with the CDC Outlaws in a 20x10R 41mm, and 20x9F 35mm Nitto Envo's 295-35-20 and 275-35-20. Trying to locate wheels now. They are pricey but light. I am told this will tuck in good on a 15 lowered 1"..

Any thoughts?

I have a 14 but I'm guessing Ford didn't change the wheel and tire setup much. The new set you're talking about should fit a little better than the first set.

I notice the stock 2015 GT's have reduced the space between the tires and the fenders quite a bit. (Haven't noticed the 4 and the V6.) Also, with the independent rear suspension components of the 2015, I doubt you can rely on comparing it to the 14's for clearance issues.

I talked with one of the vendors and they have a shop car running this size wheel, same offset with 305's and they fit perfect they said.
