    To make a long story short I need a couple of wheels in 18"x10" with a +45-+50 offset. I've looked for a little while but can't seem to find them in the right size and offset. I thought it would take about two minutes but I keep hitting walls. Was trying to avoid AM because of quality issues.

    That looks really close to the Torque Thrust M 18x10

    Thanks. Yeah. Similar enough but the ones I’ve been finding are either the wrong offset or wrong bolt pattern. When I call them they say they don’t know when they will be able to order them for me. I have time today to do some more searching.

    This is what I’m rockin’ as a temp set up and it just looks hideous.

    Those were the largest tires I could find in town that would fit my 15”s.

    Tried Apex? Recently bought 19x10 EC7's through Steeda and put 295s on all four corners. 20220826_195020.jpg

    Maybe you didn't look at the picture in the first post.

    Sorry. Thought you were trying to find an 18x10 that fit S197s, and I was pretty sure Apex made some. did not realize you were trying to match the wheel in the photo.

    Yeah, busted up the driver’s rear wheel. I threw on my RaceStars with some bfg radials On there to get by until I can find something close.

    I also have a bent rotor or axle as I get a little squeak every time the wheel goes round. There is a mark on the edge of the rotor where it is making the slightest contact with the caliper. I'm going to flop sides with the rotors to see if it's the axle or rotor.

    Unless the wheel got shoved against the rotor it will be the axle shaft that is bent

    That’s what I figured
    Yeah, I'm 99.9% sure it's the axle. I haven't had time to look at it much but I think I'm just going to order some axles and then dive into it.

    Most 10" wheels for 05+ Mustangs run a +40mm for the 10" rim width rears. 10.5" +45mm. No "joe dirt" effect on either rim width using these offsets. A few go a little more positive like Forgestar. I am running their 11" +56mm on rear and it barely cleared the inner lining on the passenger side on stock suspension because the body alignment was off 0.25" though they claimed it was ideal offset when I purchased direct. Could actually use about 3mm spacer for some breathing room, but dialing in an adjustable panhard bar got the body centered dead nuts and no issues now even after lowering 1.5". Will only run a 10.5" +45mm rear wheel in the future or an 11" +50mm - +52mm on any S197 I do in the future.

    Try beefcake racing. They may have something for you.

    Got my axles and bearings and seals. I have to go measure the studs because I forgot what length I had to get to fit the RaceStars. Wheels are out of stock at the couple of places I found that carried the torq thrusts wheels. Maybe I'll just get a set of RaceStars up front so it doesn't look so wonky. But I need to go back to the bigger tire if I just leave these wheels on the car because I'm tired of spinning 3000 rpm all the way to work.
