    damn. I know they make 18x10, but just want something a little wider. I just dropped my car, and it needs a set of aftermarket wheels badly. lol

    oewheelsdirect carries 18X10.5 saleens, i just threw them on my car. $160 a wheel, for chrome, theres not a cheaper place out there,
    and i don't trust ebay. I ordered them last monday, and they got to me on friday. their website is messed up, they have ads in
    5.0 mustang and super fords as well as muscle mustang. sorry i dont have the phone # handy, but it worked out for me. By the way,
    i put 315/30/18 on them, they look good as hell, but you might have to bend your caliper bracket in, and i had to beat my fenderwell in
    a little, but other than that, badass.

    Some tire manufacturer's recommend a 10.5" wheel for you to get the most out of the tire.

    To the OP i would look at what tire you want to run on a daily basis and see what size rim it recommends.

    this thread is hella old, seriously though it's only a half inch and won't really make a difference. mustang guys stuff tires that are too wide onto rims all the time, who cares at this point lol.
