    What clears - what doesn't

    I am thinking of putting 275-40-17 on the rear on 2003 Mach-1 17x9 rims made.. The fronts would be 255-40-17 on the same rims.

    Thoughts?

    Here are the wheels:

    Either way - Post what combination you have and how it works for you..

    The tires are Michelin Pilot PS2 in 255/35/20 up front and 285/30/20 in the rear. The diameter of the tire is virtually the same as stock...so theres no speedo issues. Some people arent fans of the 20" size, but Boyd makes them starting in 17" --> 22".

    ROH Drift Rs

    I have ROH Drift Rs for my '06 GT, like a few others on here. I think they are the best fitment, or as good as any I have seen for the new car. The sizes are as follows:

    Front - 19x9 - 275/35-19 - 35mm offset
    Rear - 19x10 - 295/35-19 - 45mm offset

    I have the wheels and tires, but still waiting on my car to get here.

    I like your set up, but I noticed that it is slightly different than the silver one you posted. The hub portion of yours is a little larger surface area than the silver in your post. Was the silver a prototype and yours is the actual production version?

    Cool...

    What size (width) and offset rims do you have?

    Any rubbing anywhere?

    Did you have to use any spacers?

    I imagine that the larger hub area is an engineering requirement for the larger size rims to handle the extra load. The silver one is probably the 17" version... On a 5-spoke rim, the lone spokes can only be so long before they need to tie into a larger mass at the hub.

    So - From the sound of it - these rims (I already have them) will probably work on my 05 with these tires...

    Please list the offset / backspacing on your wheels so others can order the right wheels...

    Thanks guys! :nice:

    Yes, the wheels will "work", but they'll stick out too much and look funny.
    They have the wrong offset.

    As for the tires, those will look even worse than the wheels. Those tires don't belong on an '05, unless you like a HUGE gap.

    The tire sizes you listed have a much smaller diameter than the stock tires. Those sizes are for the '03 Mach 1 they came off from.

    Those wheels look great. Something about them makes them look bigger than 18's. ??? (not trying to say they aren't 18's, just there's "something" about them)

    I would replace those cobra centers with some pony centers though. (the pre-05 center caps fit perfect)

    Darkfire, those wheels look better on the 05 than they do on the Mach.

    I am using replica 03 Cobra wheels in 18x9, but I machined a quarter inch off the back to move them in a little more. Tires are 285/35-18s on the rear and 265/35-18s on the front
