Realistically, a set a weekend for track tires🤣
Real. Easily can go through a set of brand new track tires in one weekend. And even for 200 tw tires just for street use don't see more than a year until they're at 2/32nds. That's what living on the touge will do to your tires.

Yeah, the goal is to get off the staggered setup and go to 19x10.5 squared on 305s. I would buy 19x10 MHP1 SVE's except there's only 1 in stock. And apparently I can't run 19x11s up front.
Yes you can. Just add extended lugs and a 25 mil spacer

I see. you can buy 2 sets and then move 4x11 wheels and still be well under $4k 😄

OE wheels have terrible weight and it is a deal breaker for me. You could buy a set of steeda wheels that are somewhat similar design and better than OE in every way.

I've reached out to CJPP to see if they'll sell me a non staggered set of their gray Mach 1 10.5's.

The stock front is a 10.5 with a 305..
Doesn't mean that it's optimal:

I run 305 tires on 11 wheels and I would have preferred 11.5 set. For 10.5, you would get better performance from 295 tires.

Thanks for the advice but this is the stock tire size that Ford put on the car. Manufacturers generally run the highest size tire they can for the wheel width and I don't think I'm going to down size from a recommendation. If I were to run the 19x10s then I would run a 295.

check the article by our boy Billy Johnson:
To the same point:




More tire isn't always faster, and if Ford wanted to maximize performance, they wouldn't have put boat anchor wheels on these cars. But it's your car @Nickel , it's perfectly fine if you disregard all of this.

Where are you guys getting this information?

OEM run what the lawyers and bean counters let them run.

After that they have to negotiate with the tire manufacturers to accomodate platform special requirements. I.E., Michelin FP, NO (Porsche), K1 (Ferrari), Kuhmo excsta v720 (ACR).

It’s a miracle that we even have products like the C8 Z06, Mustang GTD, Ford GT, Viper ACR Extreme, etc etc
