Let's compromise, 18x10 in the rear with 295/35 tires lol. I might be a little biased because that's what I run. In the future I do plan on getting a dedicated drag rear wheel/tire setup to swap out...

I'm pretty sure I've had that bolt out within the past few months when I was messing with springs, so hopefully it won't cause a problem. But it is noted.

I mean technically, you could measure your offset. Take a wheel off and lay it face down. Lay a plank of wood or something flat across the back face and measure down to the hub of the wheel. If...

Dang, I'm running 265 series on my 9" fronts, which I think is pretty standard, but I wouldn't want to go bigger--and to run that on a narrower wheel seems like a stretch to me personally. I know...

I don't know what your offset is, but the math isn't hard. Based off your offset you can determine how far the outermost face of your wheel is from the hub. Then you could go find some 10" wide...

You're going to find just as many opinions on this matter as there are options. As to how it came from the factory, I can't say.

Yes, you could very well spend more money trying to reach 500hp N/A with the 4.6L as opposed to putting a supercharger on it. Being 17, I'm assuming cost is a significant factor.

I've personally never pulled the engine yet. I too plan to pull it one winter and cam it. If I remember correctly from what I've read, most recommend dropping the trans before pulling the motor.
