    Anyone on here have the Ford Performance Track Handling Suspension kit on a GT? Looking to see what wheel and tire combo I can run. I’d like a 295 square setup but don’t know if it will clear.

    From what I read, that kit is equivalent to the suspension parts of Performance Pack 1.

    If that setup fits a Performance Pack 1 equipped car, it should work.

    I
    It isn’t. The street suspension offered by Ford is the PP1 equivalent.

    I have it on my 2018 GT. I have the stock PP wheels with 25mm and 20mm spacers at the front and back. I think you'll need a spacer at the front to run 295, the max you can have at the front without needing a spacer is 285

    Fitment is highly dependent on wheel specs and camber. Without knowing those we can't say if they will fit or not. But the FRPP struts are not any bigger than the OEM ones.

    It’ll clear with the right wheel specs. A 295 fits well on a 10.5 wheel, but it takes some camber and the right offset to get a 10.5 to fit well on the front AND rear since you’re looking to go square. With the right offset, you’d have better luck with a 10” wheel. Most 295’s have very similar (if not the same) tread widths and section widths was their 285 counterparts, so fitment should be okay. But like I said, offset is key when running a tire that side on a 10” wheel. I have the Ford Performance track dampers and oem gt350 wheels. 19x10.5 +30 with 295/35’s. Front camber is at -1.7 7C29B18C-5B19-42D7-8200-11AC0F645655.jpeg 72095246-87D1-41D9-8F50-3773E2179745.jpeg CF4C9A45-7F7C-4180-B7C8-8EC75FAC7D7C.jpeg 948F6B47-AE6E-4839-AB70-88D4F8B393FD.jpeg

    No problem. I know @SoCalTim and @myboostedgst are currently running 10.5 square set ups. They may be able to shed a little more light than myself

    I'm 19x10.5 , 35 offset, running 285/35 , lowered on Steeda Progressive springs and stock PP shocks.

    Clears with millimeters to spare between the tire and strut. Would not fit a 295/35 on my fronts, would rub for sure.

    I like the 285's all around, the car feels very nimble on the street. I previously ran a 305/30 on a 19x10.5 fronts, and the steering was a pig at low speeds.

    Thanks. I actually just picked up a set of wheels to replace them. Something a little wider. More to come when springs rolls around :sunglasses:
