They don't recommend it due to liability reasons... PLENTY of people run 18x10 up front just fine.

AM has to cater to a wide variety of people, some who know cars very well, and some who dont know their butt from a hole in the ground. They say a 10" wont fit in the front just to not have to deal with returns, angry customers, etc...

I have run 18 x 10 SVE drifts in the front, with 295 35 18 Nitto NT-05s, lowered on FRPP K-springs and i have zero issues even clearing my brake ducts, let alone clearing struts and / or fenders, but there are several other options that will work as well.

Exactly what Volt said. Believe it or not, most of their customer base are people who own a Mustang but know absolutely nothing about cars.

19's or 20's look better on the 2010-2014 in my opinion.

Go like 19x9.5 all the way around

Maybe you should try to help him build some confidence and let him do the work while you guide him through it.
It's not exactly rocket science.

I'll be putting on 20x10.5 all the way around. The offset is 45, in other words from my Roush wheels, I'll be going out a half inch both ways. It will be done this week, I'll try to come back on and let you know what my feedback is.

he has no interest in lifting a wrench
find it hard to believe someone with a muscle car wouldn't want to learn about it and tinker a little ,but that's the case

Yeah...I guess I'm not surprised.
While at many car shows I was surprised to find out how many owners haven't and don't do the majority of the work themselves.
Of course, then there are a lot that do.

I did all 4 as 275/40/19. I don't like the staggered look.

New Niches

Ok so the fronts are ON, 20X10.5 w/ offset of 45. I just put the stock roush RS3 cooper tires on, which from the Roush wheels, they stretched a bit. The fit was perfect. I did have to slice 1mm off of the sensor cap because it stuck inwards and it barely touched the strut. Other than that.....I am so happy. The rears will have the same wheel but with a stickier wider tires to be able to handle the 675 HP Vmp tune.

3V not Coyote. Don't think it'll be very beneficial for you, but if you still want a picture I'll get one up for you.

Damn bro that looks nice. Maybe I should sell my 20x9 Velgens up front and go 20x10.5 all the way around.

Well they fit, They barely did...AND IT LOOKS GOOD! Everybody will tell you they don't but even if they somehow rubbed, a thin spacer would take car of that but that is probably not going to happen. I saw velgen wheels right after I purchased my Niche set, They are really nice wheels,
