What tires and sizes are you guys running on your 18"x10" deep dish bullits? (Rears) Mustang tuning recommends 285/40/18 to keep the speedo accurate but I'd like to know who is running what and where they bought them. I'm seeing very few choices in this size........

Tickle.....

I just got the 18X10(rear) 18x9(front) deep dish set. I'm having them fitted with BF Goodrich G-Force KDW 285/40/18(rear) and 255/45/18 on the front, this week or next.
There was a very limited tire selection due to the wheel sizes. Plus the guys at my tire place were a bit anal about finding the right weight capacity. Other places would probably be more liberal.

I just purchase a set of 18x9.5 rims and Tire Track recommended 255/45-18 on the front and 285/40-18 in the rear. I haven’t gotten the rubbers yes and contemplating whether I should just put 255/45-18 all the way around. To me it seems that you would get more rear grip (1.18" wider) and better response with the lower section height, but would not be able to rotate the tires reducing tire life. The front tires would be .18" taller than stock and the rear would be .30" shorter than stock with a net front to rear delta of .48", not a lot but the combination could present a slight under-steer condition.


I’ve heard the BFG had a lot of road noise and I was leaning towards the Goodyear Eagle F1 GS-D3, but I’m totally undecided right now. It’s a convertible and I don't want a lot of road noise, but I would like decent mileage (20K-30K) out of them and I'm willing to give a little performance to achieve that.

Have you experienced any clearance issues with your 255/45-18 front and 285/40-18?

Thanks for any feedback you may be able to provide.

Ive been running 18 x 9.5 GT 500 wheels with 285/40 18 rears and 255/45 18 fronts, very happy with this setup. The car hooks up really well, but you can feel the additional weight.:thumbsup
