found a set of 4 Mustang Shelby Razor Wheel
 
Found a set of 4 for $375. 18x9 all around. I have always used the stock wheels that came with the vehicle.

Would they affect the performance and acceleration of the vehicle? How wide can i go? can i do 305 or 295 ? Would the car look funny if it's not lowered with bigger wheels and have 9 all around?

Please help, Thank you :)

This is how the car looks like now;

I personally don't care for the razors. I think your car looks good with the stockers. Just my two cents.

I think the main issue for me is the fact that i have 235s which is pretty skinny. Car might look a lot better with wider rims and wheels and i can also get some more traction .

275 is the widest recommended size for a 9-inch wheel. Anything larger, and it will affect the handling of your car in the twisties. Also, the way a given tire in a given size fits the wheels can vary depending on the tire manufacturer.

And $375 for a set of razors is a damn good price.

why can't I find deals like that. anybody see any cs67s for that cheap tell me quick....

05 Mustang 05-07-2013 07:26 AM

sounds like a great price....but the widest I'd probably do is a 285 on a 9" wide rim.

Norm Peterson 05-07-2013 07:42 AM

285/40 tires really need at least 9.5" wide wheels. This has more to do with heat generation in the sidewall due to normal tire flexing, and where in the sidewall the flexing concentrates the heat (this varies with wheel width) more than it does with how it behaves in "normal-traffic" driving.

Squeezing an overly wide tire onto any given wheel width tends to reduce steering precision and in particular dulls turn-in steering response when it's done up front. I don't think I'd ever mount 285-wide tires on anything less than 10" wide wheels.

Steven - Putting 295's or 305's on 9" wide rims is flat-out wrong and won't even look good to anybody who knows much about tires. Don't listen to anybody who tells you different; these tires are not supposed to look like 1960's 83-profile tires with huge amounts of sidewall bulging out past the wheel flanges.

I love the Shelby Razors, they look sick! I'd suggest something like a 255/45-18 size tire. Too big and you get the effects Norm talks about. Too small and you get the Eurotuner stretched look, which also negatively affects ride.

I am like a deal magnet, i might be unlucky in alot of areas but when it comes to deals, they come to me :D

I found a set of bbk short headers and offroad xpipe for 400 and the guy put them on for free.

I called the guy and we agreed on $350 for the rims, I am picking them up today , I am so excited, i can hardly hold myself, i can't pick them up until 6 pm today :)

275's on a 9" wheel will rock nicely.

Awesome thank you, would you suggest i do 255 in the front for example and close 285 in the back? I do wish he had a set of 10s , i would be the happiest man alive :) , but pickers can't be choosers

Steven Bannoura 05-07-2013 09:47 AM

Is it 6 o'clock yet ? :D

I think that's what Iam going to do actually. I also can't wait to lower it an inch or 2 (if possible) . Now i gotta keep looking for a good deal on lowering springs

I like my razors and they look and perform great with the right sizes.

I am running:
Nitto 555 Extreme - front: 255/45 R18
Nitto 555 Extreme - rear: 285/40 R18

I did have a staggered 40mm offset in the front and 24mm offset in the rear, but the 24mm caused some rubbing so I swapped them out and went 40mm all the way around. What offset are the ones your looking at buying?

Here is what those tires sizes look like..

btw the above picture was with the 24mm rear offset rims, the 40mm offset brought them in flush and look much better :)

Norm Peterson 05-07-2013 10:10 AM

On 9's, I'll still hold my recommendation for rear tire size to no more than 275/40's. They'd be a little over 1/4" shorter than the 255/45-18's up front, but I highly doubt you'd ever notice the difference between those two tire heights once they're on the car.

Having the 285's, I would have to agree, especially when you try and get your car aligned :D
