I hope not, I do own my own shop, so any body mods I must do wont be too big of a deal, cause I don’t want to cut up my Pilot Sports, at $375 a pop!! They should be in tomorrow, but I’m leaving for Vegas at 1:30 not sure if I got time to install, but I really don’t want to wait
Well, deifinitley if you get that installed today...let me know if they rub or not...

Sorry, tires wont be in until tomorrow afternoon, and I’m leaving for Vegas at 4:00 tomorrow so I have to wait till the following Tuesday next week maybe longer. But I will be sure to post all pics, before and after, and any fit problems. Trust me I’m dying to get the stuff installed.

315/30/18 will fit in the rear of 99-04 mustang
But i think it will rub on a lowered car.

the tires will not rub, unless u drop the car over 3inchs.or if u like u can run 285/35/18 in the rear.
front u can run 245/40/18

So your saying that 18X10's in rear with 315's and 2" sportline Eibach drop will rub.....That means I have to be doing some work on my inner rear fenders, cause I will make them fit if at all possible, with out cutting my tires. (hopefully lol)

they shouldn't rub. my coilovers are at 2 1/2 drop and i have some racelines sitting in the shop 18X9 and 18X10.5 got it from one of my suppliers they said that i can go with 315 in the rear and 265 front. just have to roll the lip a little more. because i think i wanna drop the car more. so i can eat a porshe anytime.

^ Nice to see you have been doing some searching

You will rub on liner with a heavy bump or major articulation of axle. I would recommend you stick no more than a 35 series to be close or a 30 series to be just fine.

I'm just worried about the 45 part, I wanted some tire shrug, but I'm hearing the 305/45/18 will be too tall!!!
