Have always loved the look of a 12 inch or 13 in slick under a mustang.. But can't find any info on how big the wheel can possibly be. Would love to get an 11 or 12 inch wide wheel.

Dude if you go wider than a 10 it's gonna slow you down. For what you have goin on I wouldn't go wider than a 9 with a 285. Just my 2 cents. I was talking to a guy with a Mach at the track and he said that when he went from stock rims to 18" staggered he lost .4, which is a ****load.

I am running a 18" x 10" wide in the back (Godspeed Omega) which I am getting widened to 11.5" down the road (Weldcraft Wheels Wheel Widening Wheel Repairs Wheel Restoration). Right now I am running 315/35-18 Toyo TQ drag radials on them but propably will go to 335's once I get them widened. Most likely have to remove the shock boots and maybe the bump stops and recolcate the sway bay (like for the 15" drag rims). The 315's fit on a 10" wide wheel without issues if you are just looking for a wider tire, they they do stick out about 1/8".

There is a guy on another forum that did his Roush wheels http://www.modularfords.com/f79/dimoras-weldcraft-wheel-widening-aka-operation-185207/

HTH

(BTW, the pic below is old, dont have them wheels on it anymore) :)

Wow. If I could just have MINE widened then I would shut up. Just need a freshen up. Clear coat is getting chalky and have weird "spots" on them. They do paint and clear coat as well?

Well guys I've talked to a few companies, white line performance sent me over to vorshlog and they sent me to another place, they're all gonna help me put this little hobby to work. I only would need a sway bar and to relocate that new sway bar. I really think I'm gonna do it.

Sorry, haven't been around for a while....
No, they only do repairs and widening, no painting or powder coating.
