View Full Version : Wheel/Tire Help

11-30-2009, 04:40 AM
I'm sure that I may be posting this in the wrong section, but I could really use some help anyway. I'd like to put some 18" wheels on my t-bird and I have a few questions for the more technically experienced mn12 owners. The wheels I want come in 18x9 and 18x10 in the mustang bolt pattern. I am aware of what is involved with converting the bolt pattern over, that is not the issue. Here are my questions:

-What offset should I get for the 18x10 wheel? I can get it in +24mm and +45mm (18x9 should be +36mm correct? the 24mm offset provides the same back spacing as the 18x9 with a +36mm offset)

-What tire size are people using with these wheel sizes without any problems such as rubbing or speedo uncalibration?

-Finally, do you think I will need spacers?

I've try to do the research myself and got pretty far but to be honest I am completely stumped at this point. Please help guys!!! Thanks!
