18x8 Wheels For Stock Tires

Has anyone changed their wheels and kept the stock 18x8 wheel size for a 2010 GT?

I wanted to get new wheels, but I don't want to order four new tires along with them.

If you did, what kind did you go with?

It seems Cragar and American Racing make wheels this size that will fit a 2010 GT.

Anyone out there using either of these brands? :?:

I ran the stock 235/50-18 BFG's on the GT500 wheels (9.5 in.) for quite a while (10,000+ mi. ) with no problems. Like you, I didn't want to replace the 5000 mile tires when I put the wheels on. In my estimation it didn't look weird or anything, either.

Ah that's cool. Mine still has the stock Pirellis, which I guess a number of people on here are not fans of.

I bought new 2010 GT style wheels from American Muscle 18x9's and put them on my stock size 235/50/18 BFG's and they look great & work just perfect
