Default Wheel and Tire question

Sumitomo High Performance HTR Z II
(2) 18x9 Black Saleen Wheels
(2) 18x10 Black Saleen Wheels
(2) Sumitomo High Performance HTR Z II 275/35-18 Tires
(2) Sumitomo High Performance HTR Z II 285/35-18 Tires

Is this a good set up for a 2000 Mustang GT ?
some info on the tires and if the tire sizes will be ideal would be appreciated.

This is one of the AmericanMuscle.com pre packaged wheel and tire kits..
I notice that the rear tire will only be 10mm wider then the front, yet the rim will be 1 inch wider.. would this make for a noticeable difference in sidewall?

I have the same setup on my '02, except with Nitto tires (I'd highly recommend them). I don't have a problem with the 285s in the back, but I'd personally suggest 265s in the front. The 275s are slightly too big (without an offset) and tend to rub on the front sway bar on tight turns. They could also cause more problems if you plan to lower the car in the future.
