285/35/19 on 2012 brembo wheels

Has anybody put a 285/35/19 on one of the 9'' brembo wheels.I know it needs to be 9.5 or 10'' really but wondering if it has been done and what there exp. was/is? Probably not but figured I would ask. Thanks.....

They may wear a little off. As they will hang over a little. But it really shouldn't be to much of an issue.

If I can fit a 275 on an 8" rim no issue I know these will fit no issue.

275 on an 8" wheel is fine for going straight, it IS trouble on a tight curvy road as the side wall deflection causes the rear to at least give the sensation of sliding out which WILL lead to survival reactions which almost always lead to trouble. Hence the reason 275 is not recommended for an 8" wheel. It barely wedges on and is best left for wheels designed hold a 275, like a 9" rim. If you haven't experienced this issue then your either not a corner rat or your not paying attention.. Use at your own risk.

I drove the car from Ohio to TX at speeds set at 80-100mph no issue. I also put over 2000 miles on them while in FT KNox KY for ALC. This was on the G8 also. Also they was low profile. 275/30. Almost no side wall. Plus the was Dunlop Z101's which run a little narrow compared to say a Nitto 275/30.

But I wasn't taking 90 degree turns trying to power slide around them either.

Hi. I have the Brembo package, and my factory 8 inch wheels are 255/40 19 P Zeros. 285s are definitely too wide. Check out this package from American Muscle, as an example. Their fitment is always dead on, and they use 245/45 19s on 8.5 inch wheels:

I went with 18 x 10 - 275/40 rear and 18 x 9 - 255/45 front, and they are great.

Re: 285/35/19 on 2012 brembo wheels

It sounds like it at first, but think about the math. It's a 245/45 19 - since the ratio is higher, e.g. 45, then the tire width is also wider. The reason for the 45 ratio is to maintain factory overall diameter for the speedometer. Otherwise, you have to use a tuner to adjust for revs per mile.

Wrong.. 245=width.. 45=45% of width(245) which is sidewall height.. I have the brembo wheels and just to give an example.. my 255/40-19s would be comparable in height to a 275/35.. Actually slightly smaller if I remember the specs correctly.. And obviously 20mm wider.. Your gonna have to have a pretty big change in overall tire diameter for it to really effect your speedo.. More than an inch

Hi. 19 x 8 machined nickel, 255/40 19 Pirelli P Zeros are stock with the Brembo package for the GT Premium 2011 and 2012. I am not sure about the California Special. That may be different. Also, if you ordered your Mustang, you can select wider wheels from the factory. Occasionally, the dealer may option different wheels for sales.

If u have the Brembo Wheels they are definitely 19x9 all the way around. The Boss has 19x9.5 in the rear and they sport 285/35/19 Pirellis in the rear. The half inch probably won't make a difference. I would still get the 285's. That's the tire I'm getting.

Excellent point.

A bit off-topic, but I prefer asymmetrical tires. It really depends on what you are doing with your car.

Could have said I prefer more of a performance tire to a all season or non performance tire...LOL

Actually the hankook v12 is not a bad tire.Check reviews.Not saying they are great but a good tire for the mileage you get.Decent performance

---------- Post added at 09:18 PM ---------- Previous post was at 09:12 PM ----------

Yea Brad you are right.I got all 4 of these tires and really just broke in.Just bought them in last 90 days and might have 1000-1200 miles.So they are prime meat in my opinion.Just got to take the time and go do this.Kinda like to find a great shape brembo for a spare first.If so I will buy after market wheels later.Like next year.This way I can do my 3 planned mods.Like this year.Like NOW! LOL!

A lot have done this, plus the GT500 has the same front calipers and discs, and wheel sizes.

They have different sets of rims that come on the Brembo's. Thousands of Mustang owners have upgraded their wheels with no problems. And my GT Premium w/ the Brembo package had 19 x 8 inch wheels with Pirelli PZero Summer-only (not all-season Nero's) 255/40/19's. I upgraded to 2010 Black GT500 18 x 9 front and 18 x 10 rear wheels and they work perfectly with my Brembos. That's why I stick to a company like American Muscle that actually tests the fitments that work.

Ford's spec chart was nicely provided by wnt2gofst. It tells you what works on Ford wheels - not aftermarket. Different designs have backspacing issues and other problems. Just because a wheel is 9 inch or 10 inch doesn't mean that it will fit a Mustang.

Re: 285/35/19 on 2012 brembo wheels

I get all that and understand all the changes one can do.It all has to do with offsets & etc. I know 1000's have made changes and I am not talking about that.I am simply asking has "anyone put a 285/35/19 on the OEM 19 by 9 Brembo wheel" on the back of there 2011 or 2012 mustang.Reason I ask is 285 is in fact a little wide for the 9'' width of the wheel but can be put on.Just wanting to see if anybody has exp. with this exact thing and logged miles and what results they got.

As far as 285/35/19 on a 9 inch wheel, no that would not be a good idea. The tire is not designed for that. 285/35/19 may work on 9.5 inch, but a 10 inch is the correct wheel width to maintain the factory diameter.

I am not saying that it's impossible. I am sure your can "do" it, but you would be seriously pushing the luck envelope.

Re: 285/35/19 on 2012 brembo wheels

I really don't think it be that bad. As the tire does not have a lot of side wall you will not have a lot to bulge out. Not a lot of roll etc. Now I wouldn't go take it and take it autoX by no means. But for daily driving. I mean if they can do this and DD and drift you will be fine.

Tire stretching. DRifters, and other cars do it even for DD. Even some cars that have 600whp. Real big with VW/G35/37's/350-370Z's

Re: 285/35/19 on 2012 brembo wheels

I know you are right Brad.....Pugboy has a point to.I am on the fence.I been half the afternoon looking at the sve silver.I like!They only come 9.5 which is fine but kinda wish they had 8 or 8.5 for the front.So now I am onto the 2010gt 500 wheels because they are 10'' and 8.5 and that would be perfect for what I got now plus for future.I could go 295 easy in the future on the 10''.Like the black but like the chrome after looking at customers pics of both on black 5.0's. Overall the sve is sharper and great price.I am just thinking tonight.

For whatever it's worth, American Muscle, amongst others - not to plug - has staggered 10 inch / 9 inch sets that are reasonable and will definitely work. Your total cost may be better, depending on your situation:
2011-2012 Ford Mustang Wheels & Rims at AmericanMuscle.com - Free Shipping!

If you decide to get a set, I would highly recommend going with 18 inch, not 19 inch wheels. You will notice a substantial improvement in ride quality over 19's. You can see my Black GT500 wheels on my garage pic to get an idea of what it will look like. They are 18's.

Re: 285/35/19 on 2012 brembo wheels

I have 19" black GT500 wheels. 18x8.5 and 19x10 bought from AM. Simply cause they was cheap.

19's fill the wheel gaps better. As far as ride quality I think they are about the same. You don't have to go with a 275/35 you can move bigger still with a 19. I am running a 285/40. Before when I had 18x10's in the rear I had a 295/40. Once these tires that was super cheap are gone i will maybe get a 305. But I really don't see the point spending a lot on street tires. I ride on my Weld RT-S most the time anyway. With big *** MT ET Street Drag Radials out back.

True, the 19's look nice. I like the factory wheels a lot. I use 18's primarily for the track. Next season I will use slicks, but I like to be able to drive to the track - it's only an hour from me, I'm super lucky. All the Ford teams have recommended sticking with 18's for racing. Granted, if I was not racing, I would probably put some blacked out 20's on her Obviously, for racing 18's offer a larger contact patch area than 19's. I'm still thinking what size I may use for Mickeys or Hosiers.

I drive mine to the track. 17x4 fronts and 15x10's in the rear. Hell I have put 3000 miles on my car rinning bigs/skinnies 24/7. Instestate/highway/backroads/city. All the same. I just decided to save my DR's some. Plus I will switch to a full slick soon.

The 19's and street tires was mainly for shows and normal driving threw the week. As said DR's wear out really fast.

I hear that! That's why I have not been in a rush to go to slicks. I just started to get serious about racing this year - joined a track, a lot of learning, getting the car to spec, etc. I am surprised by how well my Nitto's hold up. I used the Pirelli's before. The 555's are better.

I have never done an official 1/4 mile, but I should give it a go after she is out of the shop. The one thing I am learning from road racing is throttle control, but it is really hard to get a good launch with street tires and 3.73's. My best 0-60, with no accounting for 60-foot times, is 4.43 using my 3-axis accelerometer. That is before the Roush and many improvements that are being done. I can't find a place large enough to practice full 1/4's and not get arrested

Using said accelerometer, my friend pulled a 3.07 sec 0-60 with his GT-R running street radials, including my weight too and no roll out! That is insane.

Have to remember he is AWD that helps a lot on a unprepared surface for launching a car on street tires or DR/Slicks.

At the track I have cut better 60ft's then GTR's. Most them I see are 1.6's while I am 1.5's. So I am happy. LOL
