1998 Mustang GT Wheel Size Increase with Bullitt Style

Hi, I am contemplating an upgrade to the American Racing Bullitt style 5 spoke wheels in the 18X9. I currently have the 17X8 GT wheel (I believe stock are the 8" width, been a while since they were off). I drive it daily but like the style and as I am in need of new tires I thought this was a good time to do it. I want to go to a 13" front brake rotor later this year (thought the 18" will allow for easier fitment), but also want to be able to rotate front to back and not have a rubbing issues in the front. Power wise have the Livernois pi manifold and adapter plates and plan a pi head or pi cams swap with LTs. Already have the Bullitt suspension package. Am in the process of getting a tuning software package.

Any help would be appreciated.

You should be alright. Just don't get tires that are too big up front.

Nothing better than factory smooth...
