    Anyone here running 315/35/17 rears on 10.5 rear wheels?? If so, does it require rolling the fenders???

    I would deffently do it, dont want to risk popping a expencive tire like that or rubbing. Your gonna have to remove or flip your quads as well.

    Id wait for ppl that have tried em but id say prob 305s. Im sure you could even get away with 315s but I wouldnt risk it.

    It depends on the wheel offset. I am running 285s and I had to roll the fenders.

    i have 03 cobra wheels and every one says that a brand of 315 fit real good but they are DR and they dont last to long because of that.

    295/35/18..with quad shcok and no roll. This is a BF goodrich drag radial, they run about the same size as a 305 Nitto. I have pictures of my car running 315/35/17 NItto Ddrag Radial on a 10.5 inch cobra r rim, quad shock on and no roll. Still looking for pic. They did hit on the parking break in certain turning situations. Nothing bad.

    I am going with the wheels from mustang tuning. Most likely the Saleen replicas (18x10) rear and (18x9) fronts with 285/35/18 and
    265/35/18. I hope the offset for the wheels will be correct!!!!!!!

    315's on 10.5's.. I'm also using 1/4" spacers. No fender rolling thought occasionally it'll rub on a real hard turn or dip. But my rear shocks are blown as well so it might have something to do with that.

    ill get the pics tomorrow after i put another coat of wax and clean her up.. ill get some close-ups of the gaps, the rear, and some body line shots so you can see how far they stick out.. my front tires actually stick out half an inch or so, the backs are flush with the fenders.
