And no prob's on the link.Love that place.I get a few things from them every winter.
Their shipping timeline is awesome.
When i ordered my FR500's,it was a sunday night,and i recieved them by wednesday afternoon!!!
are your FR500's 18x10s? they look really nice man. I can't decide if I want the 17x10.5 for the extra .5 which will allow me like a 325 right or just stick with the 10inch which gives a max of a 315 right?


I have a fettish for wide tires

Thanks dude!Yeah,the fronts are 18X9,and the rears are 18X10.If you run 18X10,the max that most go for tire size out back is 295's,some new edge guys have used 305's,but that depends on the tire manufacture.
With the 17X10.5,315's is the max.
Anything more for either sized rim,you will need to start rolling the rear fender lips.
Oh,and ride height plays a little bit of a factor aswell.
So far i've done both.Either look pretty "phat" .

I've already rolled my fenders.... so what is the max I can fit on that 17x10.5? still a 315? I know thats plenty of rubber.. but for looks bigger is better imo. If I had the money i'd tub it with 15 inch wide wheels

In my opinion,you would be pushing it beyond 315's with the SN95 ,with the new edge stangs you would have a tad more room to play since the rear quarters are a little wider.
