OP your car will be noticeably slower with those big heavy rims and tires. I went from 17x8 245/45 all the way around, to 17x9 245/45 front and 17x10.5 285/40 rear on a GT 5.0. It was definitely slower. With the lesser torque of the V6, it will be even worse.
agreed it will be noticeably slower lol, i put my rims/tires on the same time i did my intake swap and saw no increase in speed lol but at lest it felt even to before lmao
