Default Pics of S197 with 99-04 offset types wheels please

Hi guys,

I have been staring at the bigcustomwheels.com wheel calculator and trying to figure out if the 99-04 offset(24-28mm)wheels will fit. The calculator says if I put a 18x10 or 18x9 rim on with a 28mm or 24mm offset respectively, the tire will stick out another 1.6" from its stock location.

I don't think this is too far and I want you all to help me prove it. So I need all you guys that have wheels that were supposed to go on the 99-04 mustangs to post up as many pics as you can so we can see if the tires stick out too far.

I will start by putting one of my favorite member's pic up. If memory serves me right he is running 18x9 FR500 wheels 24mm offset and 275/40/18 tires

I agree, it has one of the best stances I have seen in the S197. I think it is the Eibach prokit, nothing extreme or expensive.

Just wondering why Ford went ahead and changed the offset on us if these wheels fit so well. Money maybe, but I have a feeling running wheels with this amount of offset can wear bearings or something else more quickly.

Anyone else have any pics?

You are correct sir! The springs are Sportlines and the wheels are from Dynatech.

Black 197,

Is there a reason why you went with Dynatek FR500 18x9 instead of the ones off the Ford racing site?

Also, dynatek says that the 18x10 won't fit the S197, do you know why?
