    Does anyone know where to get the extra wide set 18x10.5" saleen wheels for the rear. It seems like the sites that used to sell them do not sell them anymore. I want to complete my exterior styling soon.

    What's the biggest size under what you're looking for 18x9.5? You could throw a 315 on there with no issues

    Why not 17s? American Muscle always has the 17x10.5s in stock.


    Give cruizinconcepts a call and ask them if they know when they're going to be back in stock.
    Also, you can fit a 335 on a 18x10. Why do you want the extra .5"?

    Yeah I'm not sure an extra .5" is going to be noticeable.



    Ferocious those look like 18s on that white Cobra, 17" Saleens look a little weird.

    335 shouldn't be on anything smaller than an 11" wheel. A 315 would be mote appropriate for a 10" wheel

    True, but if you ever want to stuff a huge tire, it's possible.

    Yeah I really like the 10.5" Model because you can really put a big tire on there, and some brands run wider or narrower then others. I think Nitto's run narrow, and Toyos run wide for reference. I think 315 would look flush on 10.5 rim.

    In that pic I had Toyo Proxes TQ's, they seemed to run wider then the specs I pulled offline even.

    I really like the Toyo tires, they hook well in the heat.

    Fords engineers run a 255/40 and saleen runs a 265/35... I tend to try and stick as close to what they have found to work he best.


    why? Just stick with a 18x10


    I think a 295 is little more appropriate due to the contact patch




    Ugh

    I had Toyo tires once and they rocked in the corners, just didn't last long.

    This ↑ Here's my x10.5's with 315s, sidewall is perfect. Not bulged and not stretched. 315s on a x10 has a little more aggresive look but I think they fit x10.5s perfectly.
