Maybe someone will, but I know most people just go for the wheels on American Muscle. I'd do the measurements myself but my car is covered for the winter right now, plus it's cold out! Haha

Well I appreciate it. I understand. The reason I didn't want to do it on my car is because I'm not lowered yet. I'm going to lower and do wheels all at the same time. When I lower it I'm going all out with coilovers, control arms, probably a watts link although they're not my favorite, and whatever else I need to go really low.

My previous answer to you had nothing to do with autocross. If you looked at the wheels and the blog you would have seen the wheel offset and size that fits into the front and back wheel wells. I was not proposing that you purchase the wheels on the Vorshlag web site, only to check out the wheel dimensions. Some Autocross classes are limited to wheel widths which fit inside the wheel wells. This required Terry to get wheels specially manufactured that would fit his needs. He is running 18 x 10.5 wheels with a .42 mm offset. That is possibly the widest wheel you can run on a S197 mustang without fender rolling. It looks like you found out the same information on facebook.

Yes, but he is also sunk in a bit. I didn't disregard your post, it just wasn't what I needed.

did you see this post? Alan posted some 9.5 +40 pictures from a lot of angles and that looks pretty good to me. that should give you a rough estimate of what to aim for / adjust accordingly.

don't know who owns the car, if its helpful, I can tell you that he has a saleen grill, a roush front bumper, some varrstoen wheels that are a knock off of volk te37's, vinyl carbon fiber looking wrap on the roof, roush side splitters .. and what appears to be a gt500 spoiler, but that is largely a guess with the picture provided

Looks like it may be a V6 mustang based on the headlights and fender badge.

When you buy a wheel it's not just a 20x10.5 wheel and they're all the same. You have a lot of different things to think about, especially when running big brakes. Offset is VERY important when trying to get proper fitment of the wheels in relation to the fender. I know the whole hellaflush thing is retarded, I'm not the biggest fan of it but I do like my wheels to be flush with the fenders. I don't want them to be sunk in an inch, hell I don't want them sunk in ANY at all if I can help it.
You need to be around a mid to low 40's.I can run a safe +35 on a 10in wheel its damn close to the fender though lol

If you have felt the fenders on this car they are already rolled inside. SO there goes that idea. I WILL BE putting 11's at all four corners of this car. Just gotta give me a month or 2 to find the rims I wanna do it with.

I feel like i'm pretty close to flush esp in the rear, with my 20x9 +24's now...

would require some math but that SHOULD help.

Im looking at some 18x9.5 +30 in front and 18x10.5 +30 in back, Like the OP I want to be as flush as possible, but I don't want to poke out, I suck at the offset thing, so I was wondering if anyone could help me, or help me find information on figuring out the offset thing. Thanks!

That Vossen car even has some sunken wheel syndrome going on. Like I was saying being from the import world where "fitment is everything" I want to be able to pinch a business card between my tires and rear quarters. Is that excessive, yes but isn't that what it's all about? I'm looking into IRS setups and if I can't find one I like I'll be looking into designing and manufacturing one.
