    Default Got new tires....took some pics...

    I put 245-45s on the front and 275-40s in the rear. I have ZERO issues on the front with this size tire...infact I may go a step wider next time around. Before I had 225-35s and they were too small for 9" wide rims.

    I didn't even notice it with the tires alone. But I put in a 3.73 TC rear end this summer and have yet to change the speedo gear. The speedo is basicaly useless right now.

    What is the backspacing on your rims? When I changed over to 5 lug with 03 cobra rims w/245 45 my front tires stick out just slightly. drives me crazy.

    Exactly. Fox mustang lower control arms are the instant cure for that issue.

    I Like It, As A Matter Of Fact My Car Is Almost The Same As Yours But My Tbird Is Running 235/45/17 Front On 17x8's And
    275/40/17 On The Rear 17x9's. And The Car Is Lowered Fms C Springs On Front And The 88 Sport Springs On The Rear With One Coil Cut. I Put The C Rears On But It Sat Way To Low. Any Way Your Car Is Very Nice. :d

    What are your alignment specs with the Fox arms? How much negative camber can you get?
