I put a staggered set of AMR 19x8.5 & 19x10 wheels on mine. I love the look and feel. They have the General G-Max AS-03 245's up front and 275's in the rear. Car is lowered with FRPP K Springs.

I just put on AM 2010 GT500 Black/Machined 18X9 255/45 and 18X10 285/40 with the 55D springs and it looks ok, the 285's really fill up the rear wheel opening. I'm still thinking about lowering it on Steeda Sports in the future though.

Default changing mind on tire set

I was thinking this set up but two reasons I changed my mind.
One: AM told me today they won't have these tires for another month.
I have been looking at these for awhile.

2) 19x8.5 Black Deep Dish Bullitt Wheels
(2) 19x10 Black Deep Dish Bullitt Wheels
(2) NITTO INVO Ultra-High Performance Tire 285/35-19
(2) NITTO INVO Ultra-High Performance Tire 255/40-19[/QUOTE]

Two: I live in Kansas and since it does get cold here, the NITTO tires are summer and the rubber is not good where it gets near and below freezing.

So I decided to go with this set. I will probably call AM sometime next week.
2) 19x8.5 Black Deep Dish Bullitt Wheels
(2) 19x10 Black Deep Dish Bullitt Wheels
(2) General G-MAX Ultra High Performance All Season Tire 245/45-19
(2) General G-MAX Ultra High Performance All Season Tire 275/40-19
Free Mounting & Balancing
Free optional nitrogen fill
Fits 2005 to 2014 V6, GT, Bullitt Mustangs

Since the Generals are not as wide as the NITTO I hope they look as good in the rear.

Do you have Bembro 14" up-front? 18's might not fit. The 8.5's was a bad choice for Ford, 255 should have a 9" rim, narrow rim wide tire will give you a floaty feel. American Muscle has a size chart.

What did you get for offset on the AMR wheels? How do they fit in relation to the fender.....stick out, flush, inside?

Default wheels

I finally made up my mind what to get. I decided to get from AM the follow.
Black Paint deep dish Bullet wheels: 20 x 8.5 all around
NItto INVO tires: 255/35 x 20 all around.


Should get them in about 6 business days.

Stock rims will put my Blizzack tires on for winter.
