Default How large of a tire on a 18 x 10 for 2010 GT

I just ordered the Boss 302 rims and I want to see what the recommended size of tire would be so there was no rubbing? I was thinking 275 up front and 285 or 295 in the rear? Any advise would be appreciated.

To recommend a tire size, we need a wheel size... silly

I am guessing they are probably 18"x8.5"s, so would go 255/45's in such a case. If wider/narrower, hook a brutha up with some knowledge.

They are 18 x 10 and I should have put it in the body of my message and not in just the title. I know 275s will work but I was wondering if 285 or a 295 would work. Thanks.

OK, you will have no problem running a 295 on a 10" wheel, but will probably want a 40 series, but don't see many of such size out there. May want to go 285/40, depending on your tire needs.

Default Let's talk about spacers and 18 x 10 tires in the front

I am starting to see why I do not see guys running 18 x 10s for the front tire! I seems even most of the Shelby guys only run up to a 9.5. If the offset on this tire was slightly different I would not have an issue but as it stands the tire is rubbing on the coilovers and it looks like I need about a half inch to be safe. I did some reading and it looks like the H&R DRS series might not be a bad way to go and it includes the longer studs I would need for everything to fit just right. I think I am going to go with the 15mm though I am not sure if I should go a little larger and get the 20mm? I looked in all of the Ford forums and could not seem to find much on this so I might buy both and return the one I did not use or need if the store allows for this. What do you think and keep in mind I only need a solution for the front and not the rear.

Thanks Jazzer and will delete this thread if possible. I sure am learning a ton over a very short amount of time. I am kind of glad I am learning this way.
