Brembo Wheels Question!

Are there any of the Factory Mustang 18" wheels that will work with the Brembo equipped 2013 GT, so I can do a set of all season tires! Thanks

Wait, so you have a Brembo equipped car but want to put all season tires on it for winter? No, get snow tires. Trust me. And there aren't any factory 18's that will clear the Brembo Brakes.

Anything that says it will fit a GT500 will fit.

You can run Ford SVT 18x9.5 on all four corners...these will clear the Brembo's. Or, you can opt for some cheap alloys from Tirerack or DiscountTire, etc.

You can run A/S M+S tires in the snow with no problems either...just don't drive like a maniac. We get -40 winters (with snow and ice, of course) in Manitoba and all I use is A/S tires. That being said, there are some cheap winter tires that will fit the bill. Either one will work fine.

If it were me...I'd get the Ford SVT wheels as they are OEM quality and cheap...around $200 a wheel. As for tires...get something in a 245/50/18 and whatever is cheap. A/S tires are around $150 a piece and winter tires (some good deals on) can be had for as low as $175.

Just my 0.02...

ANY GT500 RIM 07+ will clear the Brembo's... But as stated, snow/ice tires would be a much better winter option than AS...

I should clarify, as far as direct OEM wheels for the Mustang sans the GT500/BOSS, the answer, isn o.
