I have the possibility of buying 4 Rocket Racing Black Booster Wheels 20 x 10's and tire size 255/35 ZR20's. They are the Standard 5 Lug Pattern. The total for all for is under $600. Before I even consider (talked to the person) I wanted to make sure they would fit my ride.

I have a 2013 Mustang GT 6-Speed with the Track/Pack. I have lowered my car about 1" as I have Eibach Pro Springs. My current car has the stock 19" 255/40 Summer tires.

I have been looking to replace the tires here in the next 3 months, however, this opportunity is hard to pass.

That being said, I also do not want to waste the money if I find out the wheel/tire combo is too wide for the front of the car.

The rears I am not too concerned. Does anyone here have an idea if they can fit the front of my car?

My guess they are too wide for the front and if I got them, I would be scrubbing the front tires even if I went over a pebble.

Any thoughts, opinions, or experience would be helpful

Thanks
CJ

255's won't be a problem, you need to know the offset of the rims though to make sure they will sit in the fender wells okay.

I forgot to mention that I have Brembo Brakes. I will ask about the off set too.

I do not want to drive to his place and pay the money and come to find out the wheels would be useless. Thanks for the pointer I will call him and ask. I hope he knows.

Yeah, the wheel offsets will determine whether or not they fit. Also, 255s are NARROW for 10" rims.

you should put 275's up front and at least 285's in back and get the outside diameters within about .5" of each other front to back. I don't know your rear end ratio to give any other advice. Oh and make sure the manufacturer approves of the rim width for their particular tires and sizes.

Thanks for the input. I think I will just stick with my stock rims and get the same size tires. That way I do not have to worry about offset, TPMS kits, tire scrubbing as well as possible brake caliper rubbing the rim.

I asked the guy selling them and he had no clue. I would rather be safe than sorry. So 255/40 19 is the replacement size tires. I will look at the Michelin SS, Continental DSW, and Nitto, and BF Goodrich ALL summer tires.

Thanks

Happy Holidays!!
