WHEEL AND TIRE KIT

Staggered Saleen Black Wheel & Sumitomo Tire Kit -
18x9/10 (99-04)
Staggered Black Saleen Style Mustang Wheel & Sumitomo Tire Kit - 18x9/10 (99-04) - Free Shipping

The Wheels come with
Sumitomo High Performance HTR Z II 275/35-18 Tires
and
Sumitomo High Performance HTR Z II 285/35-18 Tires

1. I have read lots of reviews, some stating these tires are great others stating that they are terrible. I am looking for a DD tire that will still hook up well but be long lasting and the Sumitomo's are an ideal price. What is American Muscles honest opinion on these tires?

2. Fitment?.. How well do these tires sit on the above Saleen 18 inch staggered rims. Do the tires look flush or stretched?


Any reply would be great and helpful towards making my purchase.
I realise that AM carries tires of better performance and quality and that I could also order from other sites. Unless the Sumitomo tires are that terrible I would like to know more about them.

Interested to read any comments.

LimosAreLame,

Having run a set on my '01 Bullitt a few years back I was really surprised at how well they performed. If you're after something for a daily driver that can be used at the track but be quiet on a long drive you're on the right track. We have multiple reviews on the Sumitomo 285/35/18 that will give you a better idea as well.

The Saleen 5-Spoke is a classic design that works on any new edge in my opinion and I would take a look over at the Customer Submitted Images to get a feel of how they're going to look on yours. Regarding the fitment they're going to be somewhat tucked and not poking out or stretched. If you're looking for that look you could throw a set of 1.5" Billet Aluminum Wheel Spacers like this customer did below:





Let me know if you have any other questions and I hope this helps!

-Alex
