I don't think I've seen another stang that sits how yours does, looks sick. I'll definitely get the 305s now though

Honestly I didn't notice a whole lot of difference since I had the 315's on for about 2 weeks. Compared side to side I couldn't tell the size difference maybe because some brands are made wider than others. I liked my Hoosier 305's better though.

It's my DD and I live in North Carolina where we get every season of weather in one week and I don't want to get somethin that won't be good in snow/rain. I've heard 315s can be even worse in inclement weather

Yea, I took a look. It's so difficult, I'm not sure if I wanna just get 17x10.5 Bullits for my rear instead of a whole new style rim and then use the extra money for performance mods, or not. I want the wide stance, and the wheel gap between the fender I have decreased.

And I don't need to drop the car lower than it is so it seems going 18s is the only way?

None of the aftermarket Bullitt wheels match the OEM wheel perfectly, I would save for a new set personally. But a lot of people have that set up and are happy. I contemplated doing the same thing, but decided to go with staggered 18" Bullitts, because the color difference would bug me.

Yeah the only good thing for me is mine aren't OEM. They're from wheel replicas so I could just get the 10.5s for the rear

That's different then. I would definitely consider just doing rears. As long as they match they will look real nice.

Exactly I've got so many options. If I do that then I'll have my springs cut and drop it a lil lower to fill the wheel gap like I want
