OMG those 285/30-18 V710 or A6 are expensive.

You could get the FC really low and have full suspension travel with the 275/35-15 A6 all around with those fenders... would be cheaper and lighter

lol who buys new tires? you can get corvette sized 710s for dealz. i paid ~300 total for the current set on my car, in near new condition (qualifying take offs)
but yah, if i had less power, i definately would have opted for the 15's. couldnt put the power down with 285s tho, so ehh

I would have loved to grab these! But I have giant 275s under Shine fenders currently.

so based on my experiance, i think the best 'budget' setup would be to run 18x10 +22 mustang wheels all around, with a 7mm-10mm spacer up front, and 285's all around.
the rears will fit a lot easier with the +22 in back. only a slight pull needed, assuming non-retarted ride height and proper camber.
Josh or anyone. Do you think a 18x9 +28 combo with the 285s would fit equally as well as the 18x10 +22 setup? I have a mild pull in the rear and the corksport fenders for the front.

Thanks
Bret

Get the 10 inch wheels, it will likely rub less, except on the front sway bar. You will need a big spacer up front to get that 18X9+28 combo to work and keep the tire off the strut.. probably in the 15mm neighborhood. 285s are pretty large for 9 inch wheels too. The +22 setup in front should be better. You may need a spacer there to to get the tire off the coilover, depending on the brand of coilovers.

You may need more of a pull in the rear to get the 10 inch wheel to work. You will need spacers in the back with the 9 inch wheel, and may have to live with a little tire rub on the rear trailing arm to keep the tires off the fenders.

Food for thought. - I went from 275/35/17 on 9.5 inch wheels, to the same tire on 10.5 inch wheels with about identical effective offsets and rub less.. simply because the tire moves around on the rim less.

You may have to make some other changes to get it to work, Drop me a line and I can tell you what I did. The good news is that with those fenders you have a little extra wiggle room. I think your biggest challenge is going to be keeping the tire off the front coilover. Josh had custom front struts and built extra clearance into them.

Thanks for the reply I didn't end buying those. I'll hold out for a bit more and get the right wheel first...

I did find these as another option 18x10.5 +22. What do you think?

Provided you have strut clearance in front, those should work. That is about the effective offset I run in front. I run about a 7-8mm spacer on a 17x10.5 +27.

The back is gonna be a tight squeeze. It will be down to how wide your tires really are, and how much you have pulled the fenders.
I run the same wheel in back with no spacer at all.. and the fit is perfect. The tire just touches the inner and outer fender wells enough to shine the shoulder of the tire at full rear compression.

So you’ll be 5 mm outboard. But I would wager your 285s are not as wide as the 275 race tires.
