Seeking Photos of 2013 with 18"

Hi all.

Though I'm new, I did try using the search feature to find photos of mustangs with 18" wheels. I found many, but very few 2013s.

I bought a 2013 GT this yr, took off the stocks, and replaced with staggered 18".
I went with Chrome Bullit rims (18x9/10) and 275 rear / 255 front.

I bought these through a local Mustang shop, and though happy, I can't help but feel the rears stick out a tad too much. Maybe Its just me, and this is how staggered should look. I just felt more tire would be inside the wheel well.

I'm going to now go though American Muscle to get a complete set already done, but hope to get photos of 18" sets in both square and staggered.

Here is mine as it sits

If you sell those wheels, I'm interested, that's the look I'm after. Do you happen to know the backspacing on them.

Not sure if location would be a factor, I'm in Ontario.

I took the stock tires off at 1000km, and stored them.
These have 3000km on so far, and car will be off road within a month.

I don't know the backspacing, but will try to find it on invoice or by asking shop who installed them. I should have it anyway to compare against the specs on the AM website for staggered sets.

I like the look too, but puzzled why other 'staggered' sets seem to tuck in better. That's why Im trying to find just 2013s with both staggered and square set ups In 18".

Here is one other shot of my car.

Nope, exactly the same. From absolute side, and rear, it looks fine. You need to be on the right angle to notice them sticking out.
I was just under the impression staggered rears would tuck in cleaner.
Thus, I'm torn on leaving it, or come spring going with 18x9 all around and just going square.

I will say, though I am easy on this car, the Falken Azenis on it stick like glue off the lights, corners tight, and higher speeds are extremely smooth and quiet.

O ok, I've seen even on factory height it may tuck to one side and need an adjustable panhard bar... But yea those wheels will look 100xs better if u lower and get an adjustable panhard bar. Mustangs don't look right with aftermarket wheels on factory height IMHO, the stockers looks better in stock height

It's just light trick. The first photo has light shining on it so you can see the top of the tire. The second photo has the wheel in the dark side of the car so it looks tucked in.

Lowering it is your only option because its not that there's too much offset I think it's just in certain light you see light shine down on a mile of rubber and the dark side will look like its better flushed with the body.

If I was a betting man I would say that you were sold wheels for a new edge mustang. The backspacing /offset causes them to stick out. I run slicks on the factory wheels from my 04 and on my 12 they get the exact same look yours do.

You have a great looking 2013 Mustang, I love the Chrome Bullitt wheels on the 11+ Mustangs. However, it sounds like you definitely have the wrong wheels for the car. Your offset is clearly off, it looks like you may be running a bullitt wheel for a 94-04 Mustang. The bolt pattern is the same so the wheel will fit, however it will stick out a good bit like your wheels are!

We can definitely help you out with a wheel that has the proper offset and back spacing to fit your Mustang! Feel free to shoot me a PM or give my CS team a call and we'll get you taken care of.

Sorry about that. Seeking photos, and technical advice, I was unsure where to start a topic.

You're the second to post that exact thought and I think its bang on. I really wish the shop I went through had more experience on 2013s. I've never had a Mustang this new, so was unsure if it was right or not.

OMG that was a comical read, and thank you too!
Its funny, I do get many compliments from people saying the car has that '69 look to it. Myself, I'm a fussy bugger, and think people who really know their Mustangs and offsets, might pick it apart. Shame you're in the South, and Im in Ontario. I love the look of your car, and would swap you tires.

Sigh.. That is PERFECT. That is what I am seeking. I love the color of your car, the style/color of rims, how they sit. Just gorgeous.

Dan, thanks very much. I'll certainly be going through AM to remedy this.

Conclusion - I'm going to swap back to my stock 18s this month, and sell off these staggered 18s. I have the invoice to show I paid $2500 in late Aug. Putting maybe 3000k on these, but will list them for $1200.
I gather I should advertise them to 1994-2004 Mustangs. I just don't want someone else going through the same as I did. Feel deflated, but just going to order staggered 18s again with the Bullits through AM so there is no mistake this time.

If anyone has a friend in Ontario who might like these, shoot me a PM

Guys, while on the topic still had another quick question. How many times can you safely remove and reinstall the same set of tires?

The tires I bought and seen in the photos are Falken Azenis FK453
Rear is 275/40/18
Front is 255/45/18

When I first bought the set, a week of driving and the TPMS inside the car when off. As it turned out, the shop installed 'generic' sensors not meant for my car. So took the car to a tire shop, they took two tires apart before saying the installed sensors could not be programed.
Annoyed, I had the tires remounted, then when to an actual Ford dealer, had all four tires again dismounted, and four Ford TMPS installed, then they had to 'teach' the car. That was over a month ago.
Since then, the car is incredible off the lights, and I find it extremely smooth on the highway. But have the tires been on and off too many times already? Or can I just buy the right rims from American Muscle and mount these tires on them?

Looks excellent! I love the matte stripes.

Guys, Thanks for the help and photos. To update, I have put the stock 18" tires/rims back on my car. I listed the ones seen in my photos, and they sold the same day.
So now just going to go with a complete turn key set from American Muscle.

I'll once again go staggered, as having the right offset should look much better.
I'm holding off ordering until I make up my mind of once again going with Chrome Bullitts or trying Charcoal AMR. Its between the two. Any thoughts, by all means shoot an opinion.

Not to knock AM but they are notorious for subpar quality wheel coatings. I'm not sure on the chrome, but I know a LOT of ppl have had quality issues with their painted wheels. I love AM but if it was me, I would buy from LMR or some other place like that. One guy that I've personally meet went thru 13 yes 13! Sets before he finally accepted a set and he just had them repainted. I wouldn't want to go thru that headache myself.
