    Wow, nice! I don't know why Ford likes to put skinny wheels and tires on all of the cars. I think the biggest you can get on a Mustang is still 245. Chevy has been putting 275s on some cars since 1997.

    btw, how much does it cost to widen wheels?

    I agree, completely excessive, but that generally describes my affliction with this car from the beginning.

    Seriously, my problem is there isn't an aftermarket wheel out there that looks as good as the OEM, especially in the $200 range. Considering a set of widened new Marauder wheels are $1200, sending in the OEM wheels for widening is a relative bargain.

    The tire monkey that dismounted the old tires left me a few ugly scratches in the clearcoat though, but those buffed out ok. Hopefully the dealer will be more careful.

    Hey if you ever do get scratches that will not buff out I have a company that refinishes the wheel and is awsome...From time to time we nick a wheel and they either do an exchange or refinish the same wheel in 2-3 day turn around.....Hey the wheels look good....What did the nittos run you...

    Got the Nitto NTs from Discount Tire Direct (www.discounttiredirect.com), $207 ea. I also bought my Nitto drag radial / Konig Beyond combo from them and they've done excellent both times. They have free shipping, and even free mounting and balancing if you order a tire and wheel combo. They also heat cycle drag radials. Highly recommended.

    I've also bought from the Tire Rack (www.tirerack.com) and they do excellent too but charge for shipping. Just depends on what I need. I'll never go to another tire shop again. My dealer mounts and balances loose tires for $15 a tire and doesn't screw stuff up like the tire monkeys I've been to.
