Re: Show Off Your Wheels !

2005 Mustang GT wheels 17x8.
I'm also running hubcentric rings.



I can get info on my tires later if anyone is seriously interested, but they are all-season Sumitomos.

More than likely those are staggered, so they will not work, unless you feel like burning up a transmission.

Staggered = different wheel sizing front and rear, and typically different sized tires to go with them. Different size tires are bad juju for AWD vehicles, since your front and rear wheels will be rotating at different speeds. It will lead to overheating and failure of your center diff.

***Disclaimer: If you try the following I am in no way responsible for the results.***

If you're VERY careful about the tire sizing it should be possible to run a staggered setup. For example, 245/40/18 and 275/35/18 are within a tenth of an inch in diameter depending on the manufacturer. Realistically speaking, people run their tires farther out of sync than that simply by having their air pressures off.
