2016 Wheels/brakes

Hi guys: checking out a possible new car. Question: If I order a '16 with 18" wheels, are the brakes/suspension the same as if I stayed with the stock 17" wheels? Or, is anything different?
Cheers!

The only different brake and suspension changes are on the PP cars.

Yea same brakes and suspension. The 18in wheel package also gives you fog lights and power adjust for driver seat.

When hell freezes over, I'll buy a 4 cyl mustang! Yes, it's the price, but I've had 4 cyls all my life, time to step up and get 300hp for under 30 large. Also, I'm kinda old, so it's time!

I've just picked up my first Mustang, a black EcoBoost Premium Fastback, with 19" black painted rims and the 12 speaker Shaker sound system. In Sport+ mode and Sport steering selected, I'm impressed. I've had Camaros, and recently a Cadillac CTS coupe. My 2014 Escape Titanium had the EcoBoost which I experienced power and good fuel economy, but loads of turbo lag and torque steer. When I tell passengers this new Mustang has 315HP and they experience the ride/performance, they don't believe the EcoBoost is a 4 cylinder. The rain/snow mode is VERY helpful, because here in Detroit hell froze over this weekend and I'm driving it in the snow with the Pirelli P-zeros until I get some seasonal rubber on it... I'm extremely pleased with the purchase and impressed with the performance.
