Tire stretch?

Hi all, my tires are P245/45 ZR 19

They are currently on 19x8.5 premium aluminum wheels, I was looking into 19x10 wheels so they would stick outa little farther, to give more of an aggressive look. Would my wheels now be able to be stretched onto 19x10s without the tires looking oddly thin from being stretched out?

(If not, would offset give me this wider look im looking for? I dont want to use wheel spacers)

Don't try to put 245 on 10" wheels. Horrible

Ok, how couldI go about making my wheels stick out wider without going the wheel spacer route? And hopefully not having to buy new tires

Buy longer wheel studs and spacers. Cheapest and safest route.

Safest route is actually fatter wider tires on wider rims.

For 10" wide rims you need minimum 275/35/xx tires. Even 275 maybe a bite narrow and result in less than optimal lateral handling.

Tires handle their best when the side wall is perpendicular to the ground. When you stretch a tire it will lean inward thereby not offering the rigid support for handling.

You drive a mustang. It needs treads beefy enough to put the power down.

Just go wider tires on wider rims and be safe and be done with.
