So 18 x 10 with a 50mm offset and a 8mm (around 3/8") wheel spacer?

Too much spacer on stock studs IMO

accorrding to vorshlag the only spacer you can use that isnt bolt on is the 3mm (1/8th inch) spacer. According to discount tire, only bolt on spacers can be used.

3/8ths non bolt on is a big no no. Even with longer studs.

Stock 2010-2014 mustang have a stud sizing of 1/2" dia. x 20mm. You throw a 8mm spacer behind the wheel you just lost 40% of your threads. At least 2 issues I see from the get go, 1st you would most likely strip the threads if you pre-torque the wheels to the required force. If you have not already stripped the threads you just over pretension the bolt to cause failure from any lateral forces. 2nd to have the proper pretension you are still at the issue of 40% of your frictional forces between threads of the bolt and nut are gone so now the nuts are more likely to brake lose with out any thread lockers.

why do you have 18x10 with +50mm offset though... Is that just the only size they make in the wheel or something

I don't have them, those are the wheels I mentioned to you before that I want to get.

Bravado Americana II. They sell them at Discount Tire and Summit, among other places. Only Bullitt style I've found that will fit a BBK if I go that way in the future.

18x9" x 40mm offset
18x10" x 50mm offset

They also make a 20 x 9.5" and 20 x 11" I think.

On the wheel geometry or did you mean tires?

Anyway, I'm about to give up on those wheels with Michelin PSS tires. I can't find a reasonable combo that sits close to 27.3".
