wheel widening?

how much do you guys think it would cost to widen a 9" wheel to 10" or 11"? i want different rims, something thats wider/more muscle looking or just widen the ones i have. also, anyone have experience with wheel spacers? my back wheels are tucked in to much and id like to get them more flush with the fenders when i lower it.

A lot of people on here run wheel spacers with no issues. I love the look, but have no experience with them.

C_Dailey95,

I don't have much experience with widening wheels, but I would love to hook you up with a new set of 10" wheels! We have tons of different options to run a staggered stance on your Mustang. Check out the selection on our AM site, I'm sure you'll find a style that suits you. IMO, the Gloss Black AMR's in 18x9 & 18x10 would look sick with your paint scheme. Plus, all of our wheels have the proper backspacing and offset to run without any wheel spacers or modifications to your Mustang.

Let me know what you think!

Shane

you have to get it done RIGHT but it can be done, its very costly (cheaper to buy 4 new wheels probably)

C_Dailey95,

The 2010 GT500 styled wheels are a good looking wheel too. I know it's tough trying to decide sometimes. Either way, I'm sure you'll be happy with both styles. Just go with what you think works best!

Congrats for graduating, too!

Shane
