Default Help me find some new wheels for the Mustang

Alright gents, I'd like to get larger width wheels for the Mustang. I want to put as big a tire back there that I can fit in the wheel wells.

What is a good site for aftermarket wheels? I don't want some crazy expensive wheels, this is more so for functionality than style. These will be my DD wheels, so they can't be hideous. But I'm not looking to spend $2k on wheels alone.

The 15 and newer mustangs need a brake conversion to fit a 15, conversion alone is almost a Grand, those rears look like 17's in that picture

Same wheels I have sitting at home.... SN95 offset for the fronts, S197 offset for the rear because it's going to be IRS.

18" x 9" for all four for me, thinking 255/35/18 fronts, 275/35/18 rears if I got NT555 G2 all the way around. I'd love drag radials in the rear but theyre 285.40 and I dunno if theyll fit with the IRS on the fox body.



To the OP, check LRS.com for their wheels..... Good prices.

If you like the SVE drifts, theyre on closeout right now for 19" versions, $500 for all four wheels.

I'd get the GT350 style wheels from LMR. 19x10 front and 19x11 rear or 19x10s all around with a square tire setup.

You could contact Paul at PK AUTO DESIGN or local guy Paul Howey of Howey Industries. Tell them what you are looking for and they can steer you in the right direction, price and fitament.

Apex has a group buy on their EC7 wheel design. They have 19x11s as an option. I'm thinking about getting in on it.

You can fit a 12" wide wheel out back with the right offset. So really depends what you want to do with it. You can get a 29" diameter tire if your suspension isn't slammed. So Ya, you have options. lol

The GT350 Wheels look good on this body and are not too speedy. The GT350 wheels look good buy cost a few hundred more. LMR and American Muscle are going to have the selection of cheaper wheels on their website. PK Auto design has had a ton of new wheel designs out this past month. But many of them are gonna run more money. But many are available as roll-formed wheels. Slight lighter than cast with a little more strength.

I will say many of the cheaper wheels have very flat front wheels. So be aware of that when looking.

Help me understand what 'flat' means in that context.

Look at the lug nut barrels. You can see the ones directly below are very deep. Meaning the face of the wheels is pushed to the outside of the car.








Then compare the lug nut barrels on these wheels. You can see how much more concave these are.











There are so many wheel companies out there with basically the same wheel designs. But some add more detail and get the front wheel to be as concave as possible. So on the car two similar looking wheel on a companies website might look the same as another wheel. But when on the car you end up seeing they are very different.

Niche Essen 20x9 +35 offset 275/35/20 Continental DW
and 20x10 rear +40 offset 315/35/20 Continental DW ( the 315 with this offset is TIGHT) with a +55 offset which my buddy runs, has no issues.
Which I had powder coated this year. Last pic is what they looked like stock silver. had a 305/35/20 drag radial on it.

Check out the niche wheels on American Muscle, they're affordable at $225-$250.a wheel

I bet your buddy that has a 55mm offset is with an 11" wide wheel for the rears.

My 11" wide rear wheels are 50mm offset.

So far, I think I like these for the price.

I don't know why that picture is so small, it is full size when you go through the customer submitted pictures through the link.
