The stock GT tires are 235/55 for the 17's. Iam pretty sure there is no way 315 or 335 would fit, thats the same size on the Ford GT and those tires are gigantic.

there def is wheels that will fit the 315 or 335 width tires but I am pretty sure there is no way in hell they are going to fit on a Stang. I think they will rub unless you want them to not stick out past the fender which i doubt. I am ordering 275's by the way.

I run 285/40/18 no problem. Someone is running 315 on 18 inch wheels. It just depends on the rim offset, whether you can fit the 315. The 335 will not fit I understand.

Interesting, yet another troll post about Ford from Doodad. Maybe you should just stick with your Firebird, I mean there's nothing more important in life than cramming ridiculously wide tires under your car. Don't forget the air shocks.

Are you sure you want 315 in the back and 275 in the front?? 315 in the back is too wide, but 275 in the front is just ridiculous.
