Go to: MustangTuning.com...

The 18X9" or 18X10" Bullits as deep dish or regular style...

Currently MustangTuning has the set for $829.00 Chrome Deepdish Bullitts. 2 18x9 and 2 18x10's. The only issues right now is that a spacer (Included) is required in order for the 18x9's to clear the front calipers. Not a big deal and not noticable.


As for tires... You can safely fit and clear 275/40/18's on the front (Stock 05 Saleen runs 275/40/20's all around). Some have squeezed 285's on the 18x9's but I think I will stick with the 75's.

On the rear 18x10's a 295 will fit just fine. Others have run up to a 315 but it will stick out a bit. With my car being lower than stock, I plan on running 275/40/18's on the front and 295/45/18's in the rear.

Hope that helped!

Dang! I LOVE those deep dish rims! Anybody recognize the hood on the black shelby clone on the linked page above? I like the double vent style, and that's the closest I've seen to the show car.

The deeps are rightous. must have the the body style. Kinda worried about the spacer you have to use. It's only 1/4 inch but it sounds like a band-aid fix for bad engineering.

Anyone have a picture of a Sonic Blue Stang with the black deepdish Bullitts on? Like to see how it looks.

I think the 18X10s only fit older cars. Mine has 18x9s all around.

The 18x10's on the rear fit the 05's great, it is the 18x9 deep dish that require a spacer in order to clear the front calipers.

im looking at this exact same set up, but like usual i have questions. Do any problems occur with these spacers for the front? are they quality spacers?
correct me if i am wrong but some spacers come with studs in them and some come without and are just a "spacer." Are the ones they come with; with or without studs? should i look into a 5mm or 10mm eibach spacer possibly.
If i recall right, i think i remember reading something once about spacers in the front as a no no. are the spacers required for the deep dishes to fit small enough that it wont affect anything in the steering?

I have the staggered deep dish set on my '09 GT - 18x9 and 18x10. I got them from American Muscle. No spacers required. I believe going with the deep dish bullitt's you are limited from increasing caliper size. If you want 4 piston calipers, etc, look for another rim that allows access.

Pretty sure they don't require spacers. AM.com sells them specifically for our year...why would they make wheels for our cars that need spacers?

glad to hear that spacers are not needed to put deep dishes on the front. i have read that you cannot upgrade to bigger brakes with deep dishes but i do not plan to do that.

will the MGP caliper covers work though with the DD wheels? i do plan on getting those

I got my wheels at American Muscle. Great price and quality. Correct offset... just bolted them on with no problems at all. I bought my tires and had the wheels mounted at at Discount Tires. Plenty of room for big brakes.

I have 18x10's and 18x9's, and am running 285-40ZR18 (rear) and 255-45ZR18 (front) Nitto 555s

Deep dish bullitts (chrome, anthacite and black):

Nitto 555's:
Look for Nitto NT 555 Extreme Performance tires by size in the Inland Empire Area - Discount Tire/America's Tire

Tripod,

This pretty much is my exact setup as well. Nitto 555 in this size hook well! I still am not sure about upgrading caliper size. My stock calipers are right there, meaning very close. If you want to do a caliper upgrade in the future be sure to tell anyone you plan on ordering from before hand.
