Fox body 18" wheel thread

Looking to go with a 335-345 wide 18" tire to fill my '91s mini-tubs.
Any pics of 18" wheels on Fox body stangs appreciated.
Please ONLY '85-93.
Thanks, J

Here's mine with 18x9's all around. I strongly recommend going with
18x10's in the rear.

The only thing photoshopped about that picture is I bumped up the contrast and messed with the curves a bit to make the colors pop some more...and to make my car look prettier. If you're talking about the bottom of the tires being flat, thats just from the way the concrete is on the Hovercraft lot (ACU-4 on Little Creek Amphib Base [NAVY]).

But you're not the only person to think it was photoshopped. Its just a killer picture from my friend Phil (96SOHC on here IIRC).

Good pics guys.
Obviously I'm looking to either have a custom wheel made or a replica set widened and I'm trying to decide.

There's a nice LX 2-tone on here with the 18" Bullitts.

What rear axle are you running?
I looked up your wheels and Summit has them on clearance for a great price, too bad I blew the wheel budget this year.

No one does, I was just going to get Weldcraft to widen a set for me

ranger axles. used drums for the first year, then got around to putting the NRC brackets on with cobra brakes. massaged the inner with a BFH, cut the outer lip out. no quad shock.

Fox length axles. With custom brackets.
Cobra brakes F & R
SN95 spindles
MM coil overs in the front 275# springs
PA Tubular K
MM Tubular A-Arms
Bilstein HD's
MM LCA with adjustable perches
Boxed uppers
H&R Race springs in the rear

That's about it - handles great, but is traction limited on the straights.
