Ok so I have a 2 month old 2013 Mustang C/S with 19 x 8.5 wheels and Pirelli P Zero 245-45-19 tires all round.

I want to change my stock CS wheels to a pair of Black AMR wheels.

Here's where it get's aggravating...

I want the rear tires to stick out of the fender in the back more but the Pirelli P Zero series only goes up to 275-40.... how much more out of the fender will I be actually getting?? Is width difference worth over $400 to replace brand new 245 tires to put on 275s or should I just buy 19 x 8.5 Black AMR wheels and put them on my existing tires and save over $400?


These are my only two options with my budget and I'm going crazy trying to make a decision. Also I feel stupid replacing rear tires with only 1000 miles on them with new ones.

What would you guys do if you were me? Thanks much for the advice!! I need it.

you could also do wheel spacers? I am looking at doing those myself for now until I get different rims. I am about to lower my car and don't want the wheels to look tucked so will probably pick some spacers up as a temp solution.

Yeah good idea I was actually thinking about some Billet 1 1/2 inch spacers but some people say they make the car stance look weird??

yeah 1 and a half inches is a lot. I have the stock 18X8 rims and I was only going to do about a 1/2" but I am also dropping 1.7" in the front and 2.4" in the rear here shortly soon as my MM CC plates come in.

I am also moving the front wheels out too though, so I guess that needs to be considered. Personally I like the wheels bulging past the fenders, but I know not everyone does.

I just feel like my tires right now are so far tucked into the fenders I can't stand it but honestly my GF and even the majority of people I feel don't even notice something like that. My car is really customized so I doubt the tires would be one of the first things noticed if they'll even be noticed but still...

If money is an issue them yea re use them, but if you could afford it and want to do it right then get a 10in wide rims with 305 or 295 and you will get the look u want.
On my laguna seca wheels that are 19x9 19x10 the perfect sizes are 275 35 19 front and 295 35 19 back. And no need for spacers.

True but I can't a Pirelli z series that comes in anything higher than 275. Is it bad to mix different tire styles or companies on a car??

Why do u want pirelli?
It doesnt matter the brand or style as long as u got the same exact tire on the same axle.

Front tires could be any brand and the rear different.
I personally run pirelli in the front and michelin in the back

Ok great but is it ok for your car to run 245's on the front and 285's on the back?

Once you are staggered there is no reason to have same tires unless you are brand conscious. You can't rotate anyway and it's not 4x4 so no real matching there. I have the pirellis... If they were not 'free' I'd already have something better

I changed my tire's with only 650 miles on my tire's. I put them up for resale of the car later.

My rims are 9X19 F 10X19 R 245/45R19 F 275/40R19 R

The rear tires stick out pass the fender in the rear and the front is even. Looks 100% better than stock..

this is the rear, The pic does not show very good but they stick out, I would not want it out any more.

When I upgraded rims I traded in my pirellis on my new tires for a $75 credit for each tire at discount tire.

That does look great. So huge improvement over 245 sticking out past the fender?

And do you think the Pirelli p zero 275-40-19 will stick out as well as yours?

Sorry total tire newb here!

Thanks
