Ford Racing Track Pack Wheels
Hey all, need some advice.
I have a 2014 Mustang GT/CS on stock 245/45/19 8.5 tires/wheels. I thinking of picking up a set of these Ford Racing Track Pack 9 inch wheels. After research, I've found that the 245/255 series tires are the compatible sizes for the 9" rims. I know that these wheels came factory with the 255's tires, but American Muscle states the the 245's tires will work just fine, and that they sell their 9" wheels with 245's....I just don't want to sell my 245's since they only have 6,000 miles on them.
My question is, since my Mustang GT obviously doesn't have the track pack suspension that's tuned for the 9" wheels, will I experience and negative handling characteristics with these on my standard GT setup, or am I just being anal and reading too much into tech. specifications? Will the fitment by proper? Will the wheels stick out the side further? Since the wheels are wider, am I more likely to experience tread cupping on the outer blocks?
Sorry for the "noob" questions, but my aftermarket wheel purchases have always been exact size replacement of existing factory tires.
