10" Wheel in the front

Im looking to get some new wheels and I want concave all around. The only way to do this is a 10" wheel in the front. Ive talked to a few tire and wheel companies and they all say it cant be done, I dont agree. I know Ive seen pics of 2010+ Mustangs with a 10" and sometimes a 10.5" wheel in the front. What are the negatives as far as doing this? What specs should I be looking at for the fronts? Anyone that has any info and wants to share it Id love to hear it. Oh yeah BTW, right now I have Brembos and I know nothing in a 10" will fit with those, but Im not opposed to going back to my stock brakes.

Thanks for this. Yeah it seems like there are many opinions on this. Im not sure it would be worth trying. The only way Ill know is to test fit. The problem with that is most wheels are special ordered, so if you order some they are pretty much yours. This will most likely be something that I wont end up doing.

Yeah kind of sounds like a lot of hassle for a specific look.

I have regularly have a set of 18x10.5 under all four corners, and sometimes have 18x11 under all four (I have wheels and tires stashed everywhere). Not sure that you can get a tire with a short enough sidewall to do this on a 19" wheel (don't be afraid to drop the overall diameter, I regularly run 25.9" tall tires).

I'm curious also... I have a 2004 with 285/35/18 in back and want to move them to my front rims that are 9" wide. I am lowered also 1 1/2 so I've seen it done but the 275 on 9" rims bulge already... I plan on going with a 295 drag radial in the rear...sorry to thread jack but thought it would be beneficial for all

You can do it….

It can be done, I have 305's on 20 inch wheels all around. You need a 4200 to 4600 dollar suspension from Cortex Racing. Make sure you order it with the 2 inch offset.

I have heard that the wide tires on the front tend to want to follow the road grooves. If you're not familiar with that kind of activity, it means the tires will try to move right or left depending on the road surface imperfections. You have to keep a good grip on the steering wheel. Not a real issue on the interstate but backroads will give you a workout.

Cjsilen, that is one mean looking Mustang, kudos!

Thanks, you are correct, is not as plush as it used to be with original equipment, it's harsher and steers different, but it looks great and even the cops praise my stang. I recently upgraded it wit a Cobrajet intake manifold, 130mm throttle body and CAI. I'm probably around the 500 hp mark, still have to dyno it. it feels amazing. I guess it's a matter of what you want and are willing to tolerate , ahh, forgot to mention the praises on the borla exhaust sound lol
