Did a search but nothing come up to well. What size wheel combo are you running on the say 05-10 mustangs. Looking to buy a set of track wheels and what's the widest for the rear you can clear and not have them hanging out and such. Looked at a few pictures but as usual there is no info on size and back spacing.

On a 10 inch wide wheel you will need about 7.5 inches of backspacing, or +45mm offset. The fronts will depend on the brakes you have. You can run a typical 15 inch front wheel if you have strange brakes, but otherwise you need to look at 17s, OR the 15 inch Bogarts did have one with a spacer--but I didn't like those as it pushed the front wheels out quite a bit and didn't look right.

Want to keep it 17's in the front so that is no issue on spacing and size. Back i would like to do a 15 or 17. I know a 275 will clear on the back but what about like a 315 or so. I don't know about you guys but i just dont like a tire hanging out of the fender. If going with say a 10'' wide wheel and inner fender rubbing,or what have yall put on for the widest drag radial.

325's will hang out a little no matter what, you have to cut the bump stops off the wheel well/frame to make them clear on the inside. Not sure about 315's

This pic is with Bogarts and 325's

skwerl im on there,but one guy says this will work and one says no it wont fit. Read a bunch of threads on there and kinda got a good ideal,but figured i would ask the bullet also.

Bump stops im not worried about moving them. Just didnt want to run into fender issues and such. I have the sway bar brackets also. Anybody run the racestar darkstar stuff on here.

Rear offset ranges:

9.0” rim 35-38mm offset
9.5” rim 41-44mm offset
10” rim 48-51mm offset
10.5” rim 55-58mm offset
11” rim 62-63mm offset

You can stuff a 12.3" wide tire under there without rubbing.
