How wide of a rear tire will fit under the new stangs without any issues?
The wheels on the Vorshlag 2011 car that runs 315's UNDER the fenders are Forgeline 18x12's (in the rear, and 18x11's up front) with custom offset and backspacing and all that. At one point they had 345's under the rear but decided to stop using them for looks, track width (too wide for autocross as they stuck out of the fenders) and because the 315 fronts and the 345's in the rear caused too much understeer.Vorshalg is running 315s, but they apparently had to get custom offset wheels & switch to the Whiteline rear sway bar. IIRC, the wheels are 18x10 (check their site, they are selling them) Look up threads from Terry Fair here, on S197Forums, and Corner-Carvers. He's got a ton of great info about the 2011 build.
Well they don't daily drive on those slicks, they wouldn't last but a month before having zero compound left. They are also cutting and flaring their 2013 for a square 345 setup for maximum grip. Those are competition sizes. 285 up front would be tolerable though.I don't think he would ever go that wide for front, on S197 Vorshalg had a long build up, and they were the one to solve the EPAS problem.
for stock 5.0 I seen people going for 335, I am running 305 with no issues at all (I am talking about the rear)
need picsI got MickeyThompson 18"x12"x30" tires at REAR w/18"x10" 'standardOffset' rims...they dont 'stick out' & they dont rub BUT I tried some EibachSportlines & the tires Rubbed, so I put stock springs back on.
These rear tires look incredible, I got stock tires up front...the car looks ready for the drag strip.
