Newbie to this Forum so if I'm in the wrong area I apologize. I'm looking at having American Racing custom make me some 17" or 18" Vintage Torque Thrust for my 07 GT. I do have suspension mods but still have the stock brakes. I liked Tim Allens 08 Bullitt as he was running 17"x8" with 255/50-17with a 38mm off-set according to Galpin. Can I run a 50 series on an 18" or would you recoommend going to 45's. I currently have a 20" staggered set-up on the car which I don't care for and will be up for sale soon. My situation is I'm lost on the off-set and with custom built wheels your stuck with em even if they don't work out.
I have a 275/40-18 in the rear so idk if I would go with a 50 series if you get a 255 or wider. Especially since you said you have susp mods already. I have eibach sportlines so it's pretty low as well.
Thanks guys. I'm on 20" staggered at the present time and thinking of changing it up to all one size. 17"s would be on 50's or if I go 18"s those would be on 45's. Galpin says +35mm to +42mm is the correct off-set for what I'm trying to achieve. Thanks for the help guys. Sincerely appreciated.
Thanks for the responses guys. All very nice cars. My hurdle at the present is I've got one reputable outfit telling me 30mm is the right off-set and another saying 35mm-42mm. I'm assuming it depends on your wheel width but if I'm having wheels made I gotta get it right. Thanks again guys
