      5 Top Rated Questions

      325/30r/19 will fit on my performance pack 2018 gt with the correct wheel to go with it ?

      • When used in conjunction with a wheel with the appropriate size and offset, a 325/30R19 NITTO NT01 Competition Radial Tire can be installed in the rear, however you will be very limited in options for lowering without rubbing.

      I have 19x11 rear on my 2017 gt, i would like to know if the 325 wheels will fit fine

      • The NITTO NT01 Competition Radial Tire or any tire in a 325/30 will physically mount on a 19x11 wheel. Just make sure that the offset of the wheel and your fender will allow for proper fitment without any rubbing.

      For those looking to build A track/ road course car, I've read that these would be a good idea to look into. Would it be recommended to run these on both front and rear, or just rear for track/ road course purposes.

      • For the track under optimum conditions and to get maximum traction, it would best be recommended to run these NT01 tires all the way around on the car, however, if the car is going to be on the street as wheel these tires do not perform well in the rain.

      Can a 315/35/17 fit on a 17x10.5 rear tire on an 03 GT with the Ebiach coil over kit and sway bars?

      • A 315/35/17 is a bit large for a 03' GT mustang can be made to work. You may need to make height, caster camber, and/or alignment adjustments to make sure this will safely work o your Mustang without rubbing or clearance issues.

      Will a 305/35/18 fit on an 03 GT with the Eibach coil over kit? And what's the optimal wheel width for that wide of a tire on that year? I've been told 11.5 -12. However I only see 10 inches being the widest on the site. Thanks!

      • Yes, you would be able to fit that size tire on your Mustang. For a 305 wide tire, we would recommend a 10" wide wheel.

      I have a 2001 Cobra and am planning to put 18x10.5 wheels on the rear. The car is lowered 2 inches in the front and 1.5 inches in the rear. What’s the widest I can safely go with these tires? Hoping to at least be able to get away with 315s. Also.. the car spends most of its time sitting in my garage. I basically just drive it on he weekends when it’s nice out. What kind of tread wear could I expect with these tires on the rear end? I don’t want something that’ll wear out real fast. 0 answer

          Super sticky

          These nad boys really give you a feel for the road! Super sticky and super aggressive! Could not ask for a better tire! Way lighter than my stock rims and tires.
