You know there's enough room in the rear for 15X10's   whistling

71-73 Mustangs never die, they just go faster!

Thanks a lot, will check.

I know, I Germany they are too overpriced. Was hoping maybe someone knows good place where to order them in US. BTW, They are made in Asia nowadays no?

I heard  Tongue  but i am a bit scared of going into 300ish zone. With my dead 302inch even i would feel that this is too much Smile 255 should already look cool.

Found an OD modification for C4 from Gear vendor.
It costs 27 hundred. I was stupid to buy new C4 for approx same price. Now would be hard to give another 2700 to fix previous mistake Smile
Will probably consider swapping my C4 for C4 with overdrive from performance automatic and trying to sell almost new c4. As roadtrips are nightmare with current setup Smile

Regarding the 15x7 front - 15x8 rear tire size dilemma:  I'd probably go with 235/60R15s up front and 255/60R15s out back.  Stock Magnum 500s will have the right back spacing for those tires and look great.

If you want to go with bigger rears, you could go up to 295/50s on 15x10s with 5.5" backspacing and be spot-on.  15x10 Magnums with that back spacing can be had easily enough and look awesome as well.  The sheer size of the tire will tend to limit availability, however, as I only know of 5 manufacturers with tires that size (BFG T/As, Cooper Cobras, Mastercraft Avengers, Hankook Ventus, and Mickey Thompson Sportsmans).

Hope that helps!

I would go with a 16" rim instead of the 15". I wish I would of when I did mine. There a lot more tire options for 16" than there are for 15" and as Eric said there are only a handful of suppliers for the 15"

Sorry to hear...  I know this feeling  Sad
Might be a good option BTW. I think Goodrich does not make white sidewalls for 16th, but there should be options or a White paint Smile
Thanks for the idea!
