Default 22 inch rims!!

Hey guys, I just read that you can fit 22-inch rims in a mustang, is this true? Well not sure if all 22 inch, the Senna from MB Wheels is only made in 22s they say it fits the mustang, if so will there be any problems if you add a pro-kit?

you well need a 255 30 22 tire allround unless it's wider in the back then you'll need to run a 295 25 22 And that'll make the rims and tires sit at the same hight as the stock set up so it can be lowered but not alot i would let it sit like that

Let me just say I feel bad for your car and for any Mustang owners that have to see this if it is done. If you want to jack your car up with 22's at least do it on likeDodge Charge or something.

Why do you want to make your car stupid?

Keep the 22s on a Hummer or Escalade...

Mustang Sally why you wanna slow that Mustang down?
You better get some 4.30 gears.
Cause your gonna lose alot of acceleration and power with 22s.

ok, give the guy a break, i dont agree with 22's on teh stang, 20's is the limit for looks and handling. 22 would be cutting it close and you probably wont be able to drop the car. 20's give you the right look and still enough sidewall to not really sacrifice ride that much although it will be sacrificed. dont let people tell you that 20;s hurt performance, at the track in sure they will take of a few tenths, but noone is running 20's there. on the street they are perfect. every tuner is using 20's for a reason, they look the best. now obviously that is a personal taste, but i wouldnt go above that simply for the fact that 22's will just look out of place.
good luck with your purchase though!

But they's so fly!

22" rims will ruin ride quality, performance, and sanity of the car. 22's won't make you the number one stunnah, they'll just muck everything up.

22 - You do realize that you woke up a thread that's been in a coma for four and a half years, don't you?


Meanwhile, nothing has changed with respect to 22's representing a great opportunity to spend a lot more money on a setup that's a lot less reliable if you drive it on a daily basis. Guy on my block with two cars on the short-sidewall tires you need in order to fit them could not keep all 8 tires inflated for more than two days in a row. The cars weren't Mustangs, but pinch flats and rim rash aren't picky about who or what they strike.

How to know if you should buy 22" rims:

1. Are you CeeLo?
2. Would you paint your car candy green with purple accents?
3. Do you own an Escalade with a lift kit?
4. Do you drive around with the windows down blasting rap, hip hop, or dubstep?

If you answered no to any of these, then don't get 22s.
