A couple questions

So I will be getting some tires for my mustang soon, and was curious as to what sizes will fit my rim. I currently have these rims on it:



And the current tires are P235/45R 17.

Also does anyone have any hubcaps laying around for these rims? I'm missing all 4 and I'd be willing to buy them off you if you have them.

245/45R17. I believe 255/40R17 will fit as well. I wouldn't do 235 though.

Those are stock 17x8" alloy wheels found on deluxe trim 99-04 GT's. From the factory, they were mounted with 245/45r17 tires. That's your best choice for a replacement size.

As for the hubcaps, there are a few auctions on eBay.

It won't effect it enough to really matter I ran 275 45 17 on that wheel and.speedometer was off 2mph. You would really have to find that one in a million cop that would right you up for 2 over

I'm in California. I use that tire on my SHO and they've been great, so hit me up if you want to sell them.
