I think it would look pretty cool. wheels like that in the back look really nice on our cars.

What's the point of the small wheels in back? I think you should be looking at drag wheels at this point...

thanks for the input... i wasnt sure. i know that 16s on front and regular 17s on the back would look a little goofy but i think if i get the deep dishes it will kinda add to the overall "hotrod" theme to my car.... that and some white letter tires

I like the raked look as well but I'm wondering if staggared 17's would look better and perform better than 17's and 16's.

You could do like a 17x 10.5 with 315's out back and a 17x9 or 17x8 up front with maybe a 285 or 275 series. Just a thought.

Keep us posted...

Just my .02 but RWL's in my mind look a little out of place on SN95 Stangs. I think they can work on Classics and Fox's but I don't know about the 94 and up. Look at a couple of pics if you can find them online and see what you think.

+1 on staggered set-up (of course, I'm biased - check out my sig ).

What are RWLs? really wide lips? LOL (really, I did have to look this up...) but I agree, Raised White Letters don't look too good on SN95s.

im not too sure what staggered means... and the white letter thing is hard to pull off on any late model mustang... but i think when im done with the cosmetics of the car it will look sweet

by staggered they mean same rim diameter like 17" but different wheel depth like 8" wide in front while 10.5 in back.. thatd give you a crazy amount of traction lol

well traction is always good lol. i understand that im gonna HAVE to get wheels that are 17 in on the back if i get deep dishes. but i want to get the 16s on front because theyre a lot cheaper where i live. and i bet those extra wides on the back are gonna cost an arm and a leg when i replace them.

well you'll be taking a chance going with 16's in the front and 17 in the rear.. i don't think it will be immensely noticeable and think it'd look pretty good but i cant say for sure
