Weds Maverick 405S I like them for our 6 and our 6 being silver I think they would look good.

Hi, I have had a MS6 for ~8years and she is getting old so i just picked up a 2018 GS-L turbo in machine metalic.

I need to give the new car some character and I race my cars so i am looking for a more practical style.

I fit the 235/45-18 on 18x7.5 et42 i run on the MS6 just to see were i stood (they are to small and need to go back on the MS6)

I was thinking of running 2017 mustang gt performance wheels 19x9.5 et52.5 front and 19x9 et45 rear with 255/40-19 all around and add Tanabe springs.

Any advice?

Thanks,
John

Any rubbing? Do you have any photos from the front or the back? Just wondering how much the rims stick out, espcially since the tires are wider too.

rears are fine, fronts are out a little bit but nothing some camber wouldn't fix but since its not rubbing i would do anything until i lower the car.

well I got the rims and tires mounted.
2018 Mustang Performance Pack 1 wheels
Front 19x9.5 et52.5 255/40-19
Rear 19x9 et45 with 5mm spacer 255/40-19

The only issue with the rims is that they are made for bigger brakes so the caliper bracket is really close the hub. A big brake kit or a little grinding might be needed as it is that close.

The good part is that 255 fit, and you can go full lock no rubbing.

The first gen in my mazdaspeed 6 that i just thought i would share since I mentioned it earlier.
