Also opinions please for my kona blue/white str. shelb,,,should I go with the gunmetal or piano black ?? THANKS!!

I've search all over and can't find any real good info on this. You would figure with all the awesome looking cars and wheels out there some one would have some good info. I've found Forgestar uses a 53MM offset on most Mustangs with the 20X11 but cant find any good pictures to see if they stick out. Most pictures are from the side and not straight on, closest one I found shows the tire may stick out if a 315 is used. I would really like to know for sure if someone has a good 20x11 wheel combo, what the offset is and if the tire sticks out at all.

for reference here is a

20x10.5 with 45mm offset (295/30ZR20 toyo proxes 4s)

 

dont know how a 53mm offset would look, i think it would stickout alot!

Nick,

 

You car looks awesome. Judging by you specs, a +53mm with an 11" wheel would actually come in an additional 2mm. So with that it appears it would work and still stay under the rear quarter.

 

Thanks.

I am currently running Steeda Sypders (20x9.5 front, 20x11 rears) on my 2010 GT 500. It is lowered with alot of BMR suspension stuff...there are no fitment issues with the 45mm offset, even with the big Shelby/Baer brakes. I have 275/35/20 Invos in front and 315/35/20 in back...the wheels are flush and do not stick out from the rear wells...

Hope this is helpful...

Thanks Jay,

 

This does help. I am thinking of the same wheels/tires. My car is NOT lowered. Do you happen to know

if these will work without lowering? I suspect that it will.

I have no idea about the Steeda wheels. I am still reeling over the cost and no-benefit of buying the Vossen's.

 

NEVER - EVER accept the words "They should work".

 

Put the wheels on, they didn't hit the calipers. Drove about a block, hit the brakes and there is just enough 'float' to the calipers that they scratched the inside of the rims. No take-backs.....etc.
