Yes 18's will fit Roush and Saleens come with 18" rims but also that is extra centrifical weight your V6 motor has to spin around.

they look very sweet.

I believe a guy on 3.8 named zack had 19's or 20's.
"stangv6" was his name

As long as the outer diameter of the tire doesn't change I should think you'd have no problems. if it does, you have to do speedo work, no

What about width? I've heard of stangs going to 10" in the back and 9" in the front.
Don't remeber the tire sizes.

18x9s -will- rub up front. Don't let anyone tell you different because they are just trying to dignify their purchase by pretending theirs works. It's like the people who buy the tornado fuel saver and claim they really feel the gas mileage increasing or whatever it does. I have 18x9s too. 275/35/ZR18. I only have to turn my wheel maybe 3/4 of the way before it rubs. U-Turns have to be taken very carefully and wider than before. Take this into consideration and then buy them anyway because they look so friggin sweet. :yes:
