How much would swapping out the stock 255-65-18's effect the handling of the vehicle for a set of Z rated 255-50-18's?
They're from my old Mustang GT and about 8-32nds left over..
the stock RT AWD rims are 18x8.5, correct??
255-50-18 not 10s lol

They're a little shorter of course, but if you have a Predator you can reset the tire size so your speedometer reads right. It would be interesting to compare some 1/4 mi. runs before and after.
I used 245/45/18's for my track tires when road-racing my '07 AWD.

You raced your 07 AWD?? You must have had a great suspension upgrade or at least better tires.. this thing gets scary at high speed lol
Before I get a blower or possibly do a motor swap, I seriously MUST upgrade the suspension somehow. I couldn't imagine 120 more hp and 150 more torque to the wheel.
Pretty sure the T case won't either..
I think the OEM wheels are 7.5" wide
