I'm looking at some rims from American muscle that are 8.5 in the front and 10 in the back , my question is can I just do 10 all around ?
Not true in my case, carving corners sure would be a little nicer with wider in the rear, since it wants to kick out coming out of a corner. That said I am going to run 275's on all 4 corners for rotation purposes when the 255's wear out.your not going to NEED 10" rears if your not doing FI or gears. thats not saying you cant, just probably dont need them. if your just going for looks and plan on keeping your stang mostly stock as far as performance then wheel spacers will give you that staggered look and you will still be able to rotate your wheels (like Spector said). if your going with gears and/or Forced induction then I would recommend going 10" in the rear. Just my .02
I'm almost positive that if you go 10" in the front your going to rub on your wheel wells. There is a great write up on AM about why you can only go so wide. I think the proper solution is wheels with a different offset but that means new wheels and tires.... Ill try to find that page on AMHey guys im new Here and this is my first mustang its a 99gt I've got 18x9 real saleens running 265/35/18 on all 4 but I put in a tube k member and it pulled my wheels in like an inch on both side so does any one know what off set I could get to set it flush with the front fender cause with an 1 in spacer it just gets it out where it was to start with or could I get just get 10in all the way around with a bigger offset in the front
