    Default 18" wheels

    Anyone have 18s on their car on here.. thinking about going with 18*8.5 front and 18*10s rear. Got a mustang 8.8 rear end which gives me lots of room for the wheels a picture of your ride would be great thanks

    No 18s here but have 19x9 and 19x10s on the 87 TC using Sn95 brake and 5 lug stuff.


    Edit: Whoops, dont know why site rejected the pdf of the TC and got the pic of my 5.0 instead, I'll try to get another pic of the TC, doing this off my phone doesnt help.

    Do a search for user The Hawk. He has 18's on his car. One of the most beautiful '87 Turbo Coupes out there IMHO.

    Yes, now THAT is a beautiful, tastefully done car. These cars are big enough that they'll take 18s or 19s just fine proportionately.

    I have 18" 4 lug cobra R's on all 4's. I am planning to go 17" in the front when funds permit.

    You'll have to see my YouTube video I don't have stills at this very moment
