Hey guys im looking to buy some new rims for the stang. I was looking into 18x10, will this size fit in the front? I was also wondering the advantage of light weight rims and is 32 pounds for 18x10 too much?

Might be a lot of rubber to move around the corners. Will look good though. Are you going wider in the back?

5.0&SF just done an article on a newer Mustang GT(99-04) with a Bullitt suspension kit & a set of 17x9 front 17x10.5 rear deep dish Bullitt rims. They installed 275/40/17 BFG's on the front and 315/35/17 BFG's on the rear. They said that the front rubs at full turn L/R but they didn't say much about the rear. I am installing a set of 17x9 & 17x10.5 03 Cobra rims and when I mocked them up the quad shocks had to be removed for some extra clearance. I will probably run 255/40 & 285/40 Nitto NT555's on my 97 GT. A buddy of mine has an 04 GT running 17x9's on all four corners and is running 275/40's without a problem. With 18's you may have to run a smaller profile tire which will cost more.

18x9 is the most i would do in the front. I am running 17x8 in the front and 17x10.5 in the rear.
