Hi, im looking to find good sizes of mickey thompson et streets as well as wheels that would be suitable for my 2005 mustang gt. I have a 100 shot and boltons as well as 3.73's. My car has 416rwhp and 565 rwtq and I was wondering if anyone had used a good setup of MT's.

I'm not pushing that kind of power, but I'm happy with Nitto 555's . Mine are 255/50R17s on a 9'' wide rim. You might try the same tires with a 275s or wider. The Nitto 555 I have even driven in snow in Washington state with no problems.

Nittos 555Rs are awesome on the street but don't really impress at the track. For the 18x10 wheels your running on back, the Nittos may be your only choice. ET Streets will definitely give you the traction that you want but stop at a 17 inch rim I believe. You could grab a couple 17x9s for the track and mount either 26 or 27x11.50s on them. The best setup would be a set of 15s front and rear for the track. Big weight savings with the front runners and all the traction you'll need. But this will require a rear sway bar relocation bracket and maybe some trimming of the brake calipers on back. It's up to you!:bigthumbsup

ok well i just bought some mt et streets 26x11.50x15lt's for 80 bones! I couldnt pass it up. Now what wheel width would be best for this. I'm thinking like 10 or 11 inch width with the 15 inch wheels????

15x8s or 15x9s will work. Call Weld Racing or Bogart wheels. These cars are really hard to put 15s on unless you get the EXACT wheel specs you need. That's why I say call the wheel companies. They'll be able to tell you what's best. Good luck.

Do a thread search on 15" wheels for our mustangs. Someone recently posted some really good info on what wheels work.
