Thanks Helicfii - That's what I'm tring to avoid
I appreciate the heads up.
Do you have anyway of knowing if it was just the offset that caused the wheels to stick out?
I mean I don't think it was just the 18 X 9 rim size alone.
I have read a lot of posts on 2005+ Mustangs where people listed lowering springs in their sig and wheels from 18-20 inch without ever seeing a "stuck way out past the fender well" problem.
I feel like I'm beating a dead horse here, but I think the whole wheel thing is going to be my last upgrade.
Besides my current tires have only 10K.
There has to be some reason why even the new Shelby GT comes with
18 x 8.5 wheels and not 18x9.
I definitely think I should install my lowering springs ahead of the wheels.
Someone mentioned how the FRPP performance pack was a pretty good deal considering what all you get. I may go this route and also add a CAI.
