Factory wheels

I've searched for mustang factory wheels for sale and have not found mine anywhere. Does anyone know a place that sells my style wheel? Also wondering if anyone knows if they make it in anything wider then an 8.5? Thanks!Click image for larger version

You can to to ford and ask for a 10.5, that's their max size they make.

Those wheels look great on the blue car. I have seen a set of those on Craigslist but passed because of the 8.5 width. I was eventually wanting 275's on every corner but might settle for 255 if I got those for my car.

I really like how they look, in person I think it's even nicer looking then the picture shows. That's why I would really like to find two more wheels to match. Buying tires before long and want to get a good set of all season tires. If I can find two more wheels then I want to get a couple tires for better traction this summer. Would like to go bigger then a 255 in the back if they're available wider.

The rims in that style are all 8.5 width. I have read the 255 is max on the 8.5 inch rim. A 275 will fit but might pose safety and wear issues. A 275 is about 3/4 inches wider than a 255.

Everything I've found on them said the samething 8.5 wide. With that being the case, is there a 255/??/19 tire that will hook really good? I'd rather stay with a tire that will hook really good and be able to be driven in the rain if there's a tire capable of doing so. Dealership I got the car from might be replacing my tires, if they do then I might look into a whole different set of wheels and tires just for the summer.

I really like those wheels. IF my car came with those I'd have probably kept them until the tires wore out, then upgraded wheels & tires. (instead of going aftermarket with <1,000 miles)

You could get your rear wheels widened... Maybe add an inch+ to the rear to make them 9.5"+. At 9.5" you can fit up to 285. Now you might need to put some 1/2"+ wheel spacers, b/c not sure what the offset is on those wheels, but all the extra width would all go inside towards suspension.

So 255 up front & 285 on the rear, thats a nice set up.

Thanks! That's a great idea, especially if I can find two more wheels like mine. Then have them widen and run drag radials in the summer. I'll check with weldcraft wheels they've had good reviews from what I've seen. Anyone know other places that they've heard does a good job on widening wheels? Thanks!
