    Itll work but sit in a good bit and possibly rub. Our stock 17" wheels are 30mm


    Yeah almost dead flush.

    Rear that is a pretty good offset for our 94-98 axles


    why would it not work?

    yeah that's a good bit of offset and combining the 8.75" width too.

    So theoretically I could get a 1/4 or 1/2 hubcentric spacer for the fronts and they should work, correct? Or would that throw off the steering geometry using them in the front?

    Just run the 18x8.75" 20mm up front and the 18x10.25" 20mm out back. Then you don't have to run any spacers.

    Wow I'm an idiot. The only ones I saw on a quick search in 20mm were the universal lug pattern. Did some more digging and found the 5x114.3 that I need. Looks like this is back on, lol.

    I thought you sold them?
    I can't afford them right now anyway. I have to get my car ready for the Power Tour.

    Agreed. I've always tossed the idea around of 19's. Being different is fun :)

    Plus us with all the cars coming stock with them now. Tires have gotten a lot cheaper.

    The tires man its the tires.

    That is what kept me from going with 19's but if they are getting cheap.... hmmmm.

    The price difference from 18 to 19 was just so much that it never made financial sense.

    I thought about going with 18's but 1. I wanted concave all the way around and I couldnt do 18x10.25's on the front and 2. I already had 17" tires to put on them

    I have seen pics of 18x8.75 on the front and wasnt a fan of how it looked

    How did they look different? I've been trying to find a picture of them on a mustang and yours was only the second one I've seen. The other was a S197 so I can't really go off that one.

    That's not too bad. I think the 9 and 10s will look good. The gold wheels will look better with more concave but mine will be white so I don't think it will be as noticeable.

    You can always get 17x9.75 in the front and get a 18x10.25 in the rear. That way you could run a wider tire in the rear and have it nearly flush. Not to mention you would only be buying 2 expensive tires, which is still better than 4.

    Yeah mich pilot super sport 295/30/19 only 315 bucks, the hankook vents v12 is 227 for the same size. The cost is less then 18's now.


    they have the same concave from what I saw in person from a local shop when I compared them.

    there was someone else other then that 99-04 that got them. They posted them on a over a month ago which made me not want them. It was on the Facebook page.
