New wheels

Just got some new rims for my Stang. Looks a little small now but it's going to look a lot better when I lower it

Where did you get 265/35/18? Idk why you wouldn't at least gotten a normal mustang size of 255/45/18. IMO it would look a whole lot better

Re: New wheels

I really like the color, and I thought I preferred white! Didn't even notice the wheel gap.

How is a 255 tire better looking?? A 305 is sick, a 315, amazing, a 335 is down right pure sex... a 255 is only good for fronts IMO

Obviously your missing the whole point. If he has 265s all the way around he probably doesn't want a staggered setup nor can his wheels even fit a 305.

The minimum "recommend" width for a 315 is 10.5". Yeah a 315 will mount up and work, but it's going to look slightly squished.

Re: New wheels

great color and nice wheel choice. It will look killer with a taller tire and a drop in altitude...

Your wheels are not 9" they are 8.5" and if you disagree with me let's make a bet... I'll give you my stingers or bassani off road x for your rear decklid panel, or something else I might need off your car; -D

I'm not a wheel expert but it says 19x9 on the wheel so my guess would be that there 19x9

I will 100% always admit when I'm wrong... I don't usually debate unless I'm extremely positive I'm right... once u have been married for several years you learn how to choose your battles... and you learn to admit your wrongs... because when you admit your wrongs you get something called make up sex...

I lost this battle but... I admitted defeat... which one of you is giving me make up sex lol
