They'll be expensive haha. I'm gonna use a 305 till I get the engine built up. Right now I just have full exhaust and supporting stuff. But soon it'll be a CJ Mani setup custom cams and ported heads.

Did u look at the offset of the F14s? You want something like +50 of you want it to fit right.

Even though guys are doing it my only concern would be on a panhard bar setup with axle deflection. The fitment has to be very tight.

Oh yea, but panhard bars are not expensive. I'm gonna get a new rear end setup. BMR double adjustable panhard bard and lca's.

Offset of the wheel is how far in or out the hub is from the centerline of the wheel.

A positive offset is where the outside of the rim sits further into the inside of the fender. A negative and the wheel is pushed further out.

To fit 325 you need to get the outside of the tires as close to the outside fender as possible without rubbing. This means about a +50mm offset.

I say "about" because not all tires are designed the same. Some have thicker walls with a patch to protect the lips of the rim and some don't. But a +50mm is a good point to start for most any tires out there.

One caveat it also really depends on your level of lowering. A 2" drop may have rubbing issues that a 1-1.5" drop might not have. Also a 30 series tire will likewise be shorter than a 35 series so it might not rub even on a +45mm offset rim.

But I say to be safe especially since you're going with 325 is to go with a +50mm offset.

So the offset for the 19x11 forgestar f14 is +56mm which should be plenty for running a 325 I assume.

Also im looking at a 315/25 but they are kind of short (outer diameter is 25.28" as opposed to 26.77" for 325/30)

Just saying with a panhard the rear axle will move as suspension compresses pushing to the drivers side. If tolerances are super tight one might have to set up the axle biased to the passenger side so when suspension compresses you don't have fender clearance issues. That's just my thoughts as I have only seen pics and most seem to poke out a bit. If you are just doing it for a cruiser show car I could understand completely. If you have performance in mind I would size down a bit.

For a track car you should run 295 on all four

I dont think you can fit a 295 on an 11" rim. However 305 I can.

The 11-14 Mustang rearend is biased to drivers side at the factory and when you lower the car you will need to adjust it anyway with an adjustable panhard bar. My 14 was about 5/8" biased after lowering it, so it wasn't very hard to get dead center although you should never be more than 1/8" difference side to side anyway. With some good LCA/UCA's and non-stock adjustable panhard the rearend will stay centered within a couple mm................the tire will deflect more than the rearend......if it doesn't you have an issue somewhere else...........IMHO

1-2 millimeters is not an accurate number. It will move three eighths of an inch minimum add in cornering forces and bushing deflection and you could see up to a half an inch of travel .

If you have the stock rubber bushings I'd agree you will get some movement, with Poly or other non-rubber I don't agree, it's impossible to deflect the rear end 3/8", unless you disconnect the panhard bar......IMHO

Think of the setup as a triangle. Measure from where the panhard bar mounts on the axle to where it mounts on the body of the car. Drop straight down from the body mount to the top of the axle tube measure that distance. Measure from that point to the point where the panhard bar mounts on the axle. When the suspension drops x distance between the body mount and the axle tube changes . If you do the geometry you will see the measurement for the axle location changes. I might have time this weekend to measure up a buddies panhard setup and this will give you an exact length that the axle shifts not including deflection.

Ok, I understand this is a triangle, the thing I am having a hard time wrapping my head around is that the panhard is attached to the body/frame and attached at the axle, and yes as the axle moves up and down (just like the UCA/LCA's attachment points move in arch, not a straight line) these attachment points also move in an arch............and I get that. And also that the panhard bar is only for lateral movement..........and this distance remains constant from the panhard bar attachment points....if it didn't something would bend..........so I'm having a hard time understanding how the rear axle could move 3/8" or more left or right...................Poly/Delrin/Teflon bushing the size of the panhard bushing is rated in mm of deflection and is less than 5mm at 50% compression, where rubber is four times that.
I guess I'm just dense, because I don't see how the rear axle can move left or right that much.

Yes, I agree, although I'm not ready to spend $1000 for a setup.

Lol Soccerluvr, i like your idea, but thats a hassel. Anyway, would a 295 tire look 'stretched' on an 11" rear?

It would look odd honestly.
295 belongs on a 10"

It will be stretched enough to be noticeable
