Hi guys. I have a 96 GT with some beat up rims and bad tires. I was looking to get a new set and was wondering how wide and how large in diameter should I got in the front/back. I also am unsure of the offest. I'd like to go about as wide as possible in the rear to get some more traction. I've lowered the car about 1-1.5" with Eibach spring and don't want to rub.
Any help would be appreciated. Also if you live in the Detroit area and are looking to sell a set, let me know. Thanks

I don't have exactly what you are asking for but..........
I have a set of tires/wheels from my '97 Cobra. They only have 50k miles on the rims and have been garaged always and not driven in snow. So they are in good condition.
I have a son who lives in Ann Arbor and visits often. So he could transport them for us if you have any interest.
Owned 32 Mustangs & Counting.
Fondest memories: 1969 428CJ, it was stolen 60 days after complete rebuild.....
Worst memory: 1965 Notch back, rolled end over end, 2 days after rebuild, fractured Strut-bar..... Lesson learned: ALWAYS upgrade the front suspension of an early Mustang!
Worst mustang: 1974 4-cyl auto (it was cheap, I was broke...).
Favorite body style 1965/66 Fastback.
Present stable: 1997 SVT Cobra, 50k miles, Paciffic Green w/ tan leather & lots of goodies.
I had 275 BF Goodrich Super Super Sports on the rear with stock 96 GT rims.
I just got a set of 17x9 1995 Cobra R rims that were powder coated black. they look real good on the car. The wheel wells were looking kind of funny after I lowered the car, but these new rim s really fill them out good. The tires on them are bald so I'm definately looking for some new ones. the Super sports just seemed to spin. Any suggestions?
I really recommend the staggered setups from AM. The 315's in the back look sooooo good. The Black Bullitts are kind of overdone, but they still look amazing. 2003 Cobra R's will look great too. Whatever you do, if you get them from AM, get the NITTO's. Amazing tires for a few dollars more than the Sumitomos.
I have zero wheel hop with barely any wheel spin outside of launch on the 10.5's out back, and I have the stock lower control arms with no quad shocks.

It's not stock. I had 275 BF Goodrich KD on it and 275 BF Goodrich SuperSports after that. Neither hooked up. I got the 9" rims now so I was thinking wider tires in the back. I'm looking for some suggestions for what brand, or do you guys think I should stay with the same ones, just go wider?
The biggest I would go is 275/35/18 in the front. But that will rub when you lock the wheel left or right. So that would be an 18x9 wheel. For the back the biggest you could fit is an 17x11 or 18x10.5 with 315 tires. And If you take out the quad shocks you can fit 335 tires.
If you are going 17 inch. I would recommend 17x9 front with 265x40x17 and for the rear 17x10.5 with 315x35x17
If you are going 18 inch. I would reccomend 18x9 front with 265x35x18 and for the rear 18x10.5 with 315x30x18
