    Need help on tires and rims

    hey guys
    Just wondering if you could help me out. I'm looking to buy some rims and just wondering what the offset is on the t-birds. And also wondering if they are the same as the 5 lug mustangs. I was wondering what are the widest tires you can put on these cars without rubbing. Also i have firestone firehawks on now and i hate them the spin all the way through first and half way through second. Do you guys have any ideas on what some good tired are for traction.
    thanks

    5x4.25

    not the same as mustangs which are 5x4.5

    ours are a bit of a pain to find rims for but can most definitely be done. Good luck on that.

    I'm sure there is some debate as to how wide a tire will go under our cars, and it depends on wheel offset as well. A 245 or 255 on an 8 to 8-1/2" rim will usually fit fine at all four corners, wider than that you can encounter rubbing issues. Offset needs to be in the +35 to +40 mm range.
