Stagger the front and the rear. Calling AM is always nice. They confidently know which tires compliment the wheels, wheel wells, and the Mustang all the way around. Good Luck! Congrats.

hell no!!!! dont stagger em!!!! figure out the cost of the rubber involved folks! go up as high as 20" if you want...but make em all match so you dont have to replace rubber after 20k miles like the vettes! rotation will allow you 40k+ so you're not paying for shoes every year.....

---------- Post added at 12:39 PM ---------- Previous post was at 12:38 PM ----------

if I upgrade mine...it will be the foose rims in 19x 9 with matching p zero nero all seasons..
but im gonna trick my rims out differently after my first oil and servicing.....have radical idea...heh heh

Mine are staggered. Have had them for about 2 years and have seen about 25k miles, including about a dozen trips to the track. Still at about 70% tread life. They're the Nitro NT555s. Some tires can last a good while longer than others.

Bighebs10,

I say 19x8.5 & 19x10's! Staggered stances look aggressive and 19's fill up the wheel well much better on S197 Mustangs. I think some Staggered 19" Gloss Black AMR's would be wicked on your red Mustang. What do you think?

I completely agree. Your opinion is very appreciated. I wasn't sure if the 18s or 19s would look better. I want them to look good and have a muscle car look rather then have them be too big and look dumb.

19s are more expensive when it comes to tires

I'm having the same dilemma as I'm upgrading to the charcoal AMRs in a few months. I finally concluded on the charcoal AMRs (I'm 95% sure on a staggered set up), but still stuck on the 18s or 19s. A few things holding me back on the 19s; would I be rocking a 4x4 stance if I don't lower and what would the overall ride be like switching from the stock 18s to a staggered 19 set up? Would the extra $200 really be worth it or do I use that $200 for something else? (i.e. louvers, tuner, CAI, etc.)

I've been doing a lot of research and price comparison on this topic the past couple months and also concluded that it's cheaper to get the rim/tire combo even if you have to pay $200 for the TPMS (Which you can get a full set on eBay for $70). Anybody else do a comparison on this topic?

It's an honest struggle. I really want to make sure the sizing is perfect. The 18x9 staggered on the American muscle 2011 gt looks
Fantastic but I wish there was a picture of them in 19.8 in the charcoal for comparison

I just put 19 in. AMR charcoal wheels (staggered) with General G-Max tires on my 2012 Mustang v6. Best decision I have ever made regarding my car! My baby went from 'Clark Kent' to 'Superman' in a matter of minutes.

'Big ups' to American Muscle!

So you didn't go with a rim/tire package through AM? Did you find that way to be cheaper?

I plan on going pretty easy on my tires. I don't abuse them and when winter hits again later this year they are coming off and getting swapped out for the standard 17 in, wheels but with proper snow tires.

I chose 19 in. because they looked better than 18's and 20's were too big visually.

From the hours of research that I've done (Not considering Ebay or sale prices), my conclusion it is cheaper to buy the tire/rim combo from AM. By the time you buy the rims from AM (Approx. $620), the TPMS from Ebay (Approx. $70), and the Installation (Approx. $100), you're already at around $800, which only leaves you around $4-500 for tires. (Not including shipping on the tires, unless you buy them locally)

Unless you can find a steal on tires (Especially a staggered set up), I'm about 95% sure it's easier/cheaper to go the AM route. Just my

I bought the complete package (including the TPMS set-up) from American Muscle.
All that was needed to do was swap out the old with the new and sync the TPMS. Simple as that. All told about $1800 was spent. Well worth it since my General G-Max tires are WAY better in the snow than I would have imagined. And the tread depth on these is insane (like looking down the Grand Canyon!) so I expect really long tire wear since I don't abuse my tires at all.

I never considered buying separately.

IMO I ride 20's. 19's are costly when it comes exchanging out the tires.

I had the 19s that came with the performance package, but when I was going to get new tires, it was just cheaper to go with 20s and new rims they had at my local shop. My new tires had a 50k mile warranty, but my other tires were much more sticky. I would just get 18s or maybe 17s and just lower your car. I only get 22mpg on my 20s. I was getting 24 on the 19s.

I'll plasti-dip the rims for a bit and then it looks like the AMR's might be the way to go! That back louver is perfect too
