Hi guys,

So, I will be soon putting on Steeda Progressive Springs, which lowers the front 1.125 inches and the rear 1.0 inches on my 2017 5.0

Originally, I intended to run Michellin pilot sport 4s on my new project 6gr wheels 19x10 19x11 with 275/35/19 and 295/35/19. However, the 275 is on backorder until late April so I decided to purchase 285/35/19 for the front in the meantime.

Will the combination of 285/35/19 front and 295/35/19 rear along with Steeda 1.125 inches front drop and 1 inch rear drop work?

In addition, any recommendations for alignment that caters to spirited driving while prolonging tread wear? ( I do have Maximum motorsport camber plates)

You’ll be fine with the 285/295 35 19 Steeda Progressive combination, and the 285 PS4S on a 10” wheel is perfect (I have 275s on a 10” and they are a touch too stretched imo).

Alignment:

0.00 to 0.05 toe-in per front wheel

Choose your own front camber with MM plates, but staying at, or just under, -2.0 (per wheel) for a street car is good

0.10-0.12 toe-in for each rear wheel

-1.6ish camber for each rear wheel

***0 thrust angle***

PS4S is not available in 305/35-19, and 305/30-19 would make the rear tires shorter than the front tires by enough that most people would notice.
