Future new wheels questions...

I'm pretty dead set on getting this wheel and tire kit from AM in a few weeks (MMD MMD Staggered Axim Gloss Black Mustang Wheel & Pirelli Tire Kit - 19x8.5/10 63102 (05-14 All) - Free Shipping). I'm going to call them before I order to clarify a few things but thought I would ask all my fellow enthusiasts on here first.

Question 1: I would love to see pics of these wheels on a few cars besides the stock photos on AM. Anyone running with these ones on?

Question 2: I currently have the 5/16" wheels spacers on my car so that the stock wheels clear my caliper covers. Would I still need to use the spacers with these new wheels or not?

Question 3: I've never bought new wheels for any of my cars. Do I need to get an alignment after I put them on? And is my speedometer going to be off since I'm going from 17's to 19's?

Last Question: I'm thinking about going with that exact combo. Do you guys think the staggered one will be good for just my DD car or should I go with standard? I love the staggered look and I don't care much about the rotation aspect of it if I get the staggered. I know this is just more of a personal preference but I was just curious what you all thought!

Here are a couple pics of my car so you get an idea of what these wheels might look like on it. I will stop ranting now.
Thanks everyone, you all are awesome!!!Click image for larger version

This is the only thing i can comment on. You will not need an alignment, and check the height of those new tires against the height of your current ones.
Tire Height Calculator - Wallace Racing

If i'm not mistaken the V6 comes with a 28" tire stock, but those 275 40 19s come out to be right about 27.66", so i wouldnt worry about the speedo being off.

Thanks for that link Voltwings! Sounds like I should be ok then for the speedometer and alignment. Thanks for the quick response.

These are very nice wheels.

As far as the spacers go I would still use them. I have aftermarket wheels with the same specs and I still use my 5/16 spacer. The back will be almost flush, the front will still look a little sunk in. Personally, I hate that look. I wish I would have bought a more aggressive setup and not have to use the spacers. I like my tires to be flush.

One more question I didnt address...staggered vs. square.

For me, staggered all the way. While you cant rotate them you can still flop them. It will cost you a little more but really you would only flop them around 2-3 times a year. I have a relationship with a tire company very close to me, they charge me 35-40.00 to flop and re-balance them. The cost is worth the look.

Thanks SoCal, I figured better safe than sorry with the spacers too. What wheels do you have?

Stagger definitely! Will give you a slightly more aggressive stance. Especially if you choose to lower it later.

Since the op is posting questions about wheels, I might as well make one here instead of opening another one. I have a 2013 V6 premium, with the exact wheels that the op has. I am getting the 20 inch AMR black wheels from AM. Will I have to tune my car for having my speedometer fixed?

P.S. I have 17" stock wheels.

You should be fine. I went from 18 to 20 with no issue.

What about a staggered set of svt wheels? 19x9.5 in the front and 20x9.5 in the back? Will my speedometer be off? Will it rub?

Overall height is what affects the speedo, not width. As long as you are marginally close it won't change the speedo much. One thing I haven't seen posted is that when you get new rims you should remove the retaining washer on the stud. This is something put there at the factory and the stock rims have a grove to fit this piece but aftermarket rims do not. If you don't remove it your rims won't sit flush to the rotor.

Pretty sure any tire shop can do that?

How does the washer thing work?

Paintmann111 is referring to the brake rotor retainer clips, which are typically put on at the factory only for use going through the assembly line.
Here's what they look like....

The OEM rims come with a recess on the back side to accommodate these clips.
An after market rim WITHOUT the recess would not sit flat. So the clips must be removed. They are not really necessary.
Here's a pic of a recess on the back of a rim.(Not a very good one.)

If you use the stock tires that come with the svt wheels you can rub in the front. Are you lowered?
I'm on sr springs. 1.5 in drop all around and I used to rub. I bought the roush steering rack stops to fix the rubbing

Just updating everyone. I did end up ordering the exact wheel kit I posted in my OP this last Friday. I'm suppose to get them delivered by Tuesday, so hopefully I'll get them on my next day off of work, being this Thursday. I'll post pics once I get them on. Thanks for the advice and help again everyone.
