Wide Wheels

275/4517 on 10 inch wide wheel on my 93LX no problem. I did have to remove the Quad shock other than that easy going. Chris at LMR very helpful. Papa Doc

Converting to five lug has nothing to do with a tire fitting. It all has to do with getting the correct rim backspacing and removing the quad shocks, and maybe rolling the fender lips. Remember you can only safely remove the quad shocks if you have aftermarker rear control arms..

Bottom line, is you are much better off running a 17x9 wheel with a 275 tire. That still requires mods, you need to run aftermarket upper and lower control arms so you can remove the quad shock, and is some cases you may need to roll the fender lip. It looks real nice though, fills the fender out perfectly.
I have the 93 in my sig and just put on 17x9s all the way around with 245 40 17s up front and 275 40s in the rear. The only ...absolute only mod I had to do was flip the quad shocks which took all of 10 minutes.
No rubbing at all.

confused

what is up ya'll? i am new to this forum and kinda new to mustangs. i have a 89gt with TFTW heads, TRF stage II cam, performerII intake, roller rockers, 3.73 gears, etc. i am now dressing the car up with paint , wheels, tint, etc. i was wondering what in the world can i do to make 17x9in fit on my stang? on that note...what is rolling fenders, is it really necessary to change upper and lower control arms? what will actually rub, the rim or the tire.

patwrecked what about rear struts and exhaust pipes. i have stock 15x7 10 holes and they rub the struts when i corner really hard, how the fuck are you gonna get 10s in let alone 10.5.

stang94 10.5 on Fox I think you DO need to roll back the fenders. But to answer you question. Yes it does it. it just will take alittle work.
April 24th, 2007 07:33 AM
Lax89 10.5's will fit....it just takes some maneuvering to get them on there, actually alot of maneuvering and jamming, and hammering and whatnot. Anyways....they do fit, A friend got them on there, and I'm sure a few people will back me up here. Anything bigger needs the fenders rolled and whatnot....but if ur careful and try really hard, u can squeeze em in

10.5" Wheels on Rear of 89 Mustang, How Can I Do It?

I looking for someone who has gone through the process of putting a Set of 10.5" wheels on the back of a 87 - 93 (specifically a 89) Fox body Mustang. I need to know what suspension and body mods I will have to perform to make this happen and it is going to happen. Thanks for any and all info you can give. Mustangs for Life, Dude.
