For those that have the FR500 wheels, what size do you have in the rear?

17x10.5 or 18x10? If you have the 17x10.5 how well did they fit your car? Eventhough they may be a bit heavy, I like the way they look and may end up getting a set but not sure which to settle for. I am sure I could find tires for the 18 inch but the 17x10.5 may be limited tire selection.

I've got them on mine, 18x10 in the back fit great and no problems with the IRS bolt when I had the IRS in the car.
Either size you choose will look good and you won't have any issues finding tires for either size.

Good luck! :thumbsup:

I have 18X10 also and I didnt think they made 10.5 might be wrong

The 17" wheels are 10.5" wide, the 18" only come in 10" wide :D

They make them, 10.5x17 but considering the other aftermarket wheels in the 10.5x17 width, some require a spacer for use on the IRS.
Those are probably the meanest looking wheels for the Mustang and at a good cost. Last year I purchased the 10th anniversary wheels and I am happy with them but miss the deep dish appearance in the rear. Too bad they do not offer that wheel with a different rear offset.... I would not mind having another set of wheels :crazy: :drool: . Originally I was after the FR500 18x10 and the 18x9's in chrome but they were not available at the time I had the wheel itch, so I settled on the 10th anniversary wheels. Now that I have seen the genuine article on a few cars this past year makes me want them even more (not because others have them, it is because they look so good on the car). Still a toss up what I will do next.
