Default Wheel fitment for 05-14 mustangs

I'll be getting new wheels soon, the 2013 gt500 wheels. I can't decide between 18 or 19 inch; I'm leaning more towards the 19's. I want to go as wide as possible so i was considering 10inches on all 4's, but the 48mm offset won't clear the front control arm, not unless i get spacers; but that would look funky. So, I was considering the 9.5inch wide for the front, and keep the 10 in the rear. the 9.5 has a 35mm offset and I think it would fit the front perfectly If i run some nitto 275/40 up front and 285/35 rear.

Or, should I just stick with the staggered fitment and go 8.5 front and 10 rear? Would this be much better than going with 9.5 front and 10 rear?

What are your thoughts and conclusions? I'm in a big pickle with decisions at the moment and need some friendly advice.

Heres some links to the wheels.

8.5:

9.5:

10:
http://www.americanmuscle.com/charco...9x10-0513.html

I know this is not the right place to post this topic but I figured I would get more views and more feedback.

Thank you,
Joe

I really wanted a staggered look myself, but I think in the end I'm just not going to be happy with different sets of tires. The only thing that might convince me to do it is that I probably only put like 700 miles a month if that, so financially it shouldn't be a big deal. But good choice, those are the ones I'll probably be getting myself as well in charcoal. Should go nicely with the sterling gray.

Me personally, I wouldn't do 10's on all (4) corners.

...and having to decide between 8.5's & 9.5's up front....I'd probably be more inclined to go with the 8.5's and run a 255/40/19.

Thats what i was thinking as i would have a more proper balance in comparison to the stock tires it comes with. Therefore with a tire calculator and running a 285/35-19 in the rear, my speedometer (which will change from a tune) would only be .66% slow. Wouldn't make a huge difference.

What would be the impact on running a 9.5 front over an 8.5 front? Would the fitment just look funky?

Thanks

Ditto.

More than that though, I 100% support square, always have. I honestly don't understand the appeal of staggered setups.

I want to say that if you put 10s up front it would cause/promote bump steer issues.

Not bumpsteer, but possible tramlining, which is really a consequence of tire size (width) with some tire brands and models being noticeably worse than others.

A few people are fitting 10's up front, but the offset needs to be more like +42 or maybe +43. 10" wide in +48 supposedly can be done, but only with specially constructed struts (Cortexracing is the only place I know of with them). I don't know if there is a control arm foul with these wheels.
