Hello to everyone....... newbie here from NC. I splurged last Fall and bought an 06 GT conv. "Sally" is my very 1st Mustang or hot- rod car of any type.Man was it a blast to ride around with the top down!! Can't wait for summertime. Bought it slightly used - only 1 mod............ a set of flowmasters - they sound decent. I plan to do some performance upgrades later. My 1st project for it tho is going to be putting a set of Cobra 2000 R rims on it. To go along with this - I'm wanting to get some lo-profile tires and a lowering kit. I was thinking of 235/45 or 225/45. What name brands should I try to stick with and which should I avoid? Any suggestions on a lowering kit (this area I am really unfamiliar with). I've read the forum about the springs and lca, etc - but I am still green on this subject. Thanks sincerely for your replies.

go with the eibach pro kit. its reasonable in price, easy install and a lot of people have it and enjoy it. get an adjustable pan hard bar to center the axle. thats a must. i personally went with the eibach kit and 18x9 chromedeep dish rims with 265/35/18 on all 4 corners and it looks totally bad as*! i havent done the lca's yet and i dont think its totally necessary but it does line up ur drive train to normal specs. ive read a ton on tokico d-specs too and everyone loves em. i would def go with a lower profile than a 45-55 and wider than 245. jmo. i wish i could get pics up of my car to show ya but this dang thing wont let it happen for some reason?!?![:@]any ways i hope i helped ya a lil bit. im sure more will chime in on this topic!! good luck!!

Use an online tire size calculator to determine the overall diameter of the tires you choose. I just happen to have some 235/45/17 mounted on the rims off my ranger and it looks silly on my mustang with a 1.5 inch drop. Way to much wheel well gap.
Here's what a 25.3 inch diameter rims/tire looks like on the back of a stock height mustang. Atleast I think it was still at the stock height in this pic.

I'm running 17" cobra r 9" deep-dish wheels with the stock 235/55/17 parelli tires. Using the eibach pro-kits,they look great. But I'd like to go with a wider tirewith these 17" wheels. Can anybody help me with what tires would work? I've seen the postings of the site that has a wheel/tire calculator, but I can't open the spreadsheet for some reason.
