Just ordered some 19x11 EC-7 for the rear, what about the front?

    2017 Mustang GT PP Whipple stage 2, Borla, GT350 Base Dampers, FP GT350 lowering springs and sway bars, delrin bushings, etc.

    I am having a serious lack of traction with the Whipple installed on the stock 9.5 rear wheels so I ordered some o fthe 19x11 EC-7s. I plan on using either a 305/30 or 305/35 Michelin tire on those. I only purchased two because I'm not sure what to do about the front and wanted to test fit one of the rear wheels on the front... I don't see a lot of GTs with the 305 square setup. I was thinking of using another set of 11" wheels up front but I think Ford used a 10.5 wheel on the Level 2 PP in 2018 because of the clearance issue. I have been told these cars are night and day with a square 305 set up. What do you guys recommend?

    Square 305 or 315 without a doubt. They fit fine up front on a GT350 with 25mm spacers and 305 SC2's. I'm not sure about the GT but I'm pretty sure they will fit with the correct spacers and some camber added. @steveespo

    Yes, they will clear with 305's and a 25mm Spacer. You will want 1/2" longer rear wheel studs because the APEX wheel has a thick mounting flange and factory studs are very short.

    Great advice from Rick and Tim here. To ensure we are pointing you in the right direction, how do you plan to use the car? I know this is TrackMustangsOnline, but I do not want to make any assumptions here :p

    I saw the notes on your suspension setup, but do you have adjustable camber plates installed?

    My 19x11s came today, 19x10s will be here next Thursday. Do the stock GT350 center caps fit these wheels. The Ford BE8Z-1130-A center caps I have are too small.

    The stock center caps do not fit the Apex wheels.

    I got your PM.

    This just sounds like a challenge...

    This was posted by the ApexRaceParts account on Mustang6g

    “Appreciate your interest. If the center cap in question is made to fit the OEM wheels, than they will work with our wheels as well (our wheels were deigned specifically to accept the factory center caps).”

    IDK but those caps don’t fit properly. I was going to throw some Ford stickers on mine and call it a day.

    BFH fit? I remember reading that the OEM caps are supposed to fit. Not that I ever run them...

    I bought into APEX's statement as well but any Ford cap I found either didn't fit at all or fit poorly. The search goes on because I gotta believe there's a solution out there.

    Not Apex wheels but I measured my cap and ordered a set of sticker badges off EBay. They have been on for a year no problems. You can find different diameters.

    I believe after researching this that the 01 Bullitt center caps will fit. I ordered one and will report back.

    Based on that logic the following should fit:
    M-1096-CA - 1994-2001 Cobra [F8ZZ-1130-A]
    XR3Z-1130-HA - SVT (Silver)
    M-1096-FR - Ford Racing 13-14 GT500
    M-1096-J - 2000 Cobra R
    M-1096-K - 2001 Bullit [1R3Z-1130-AA]
    M-1096-N - 2002-04 SVT Focus, 2007-09 GT500 [2M5Z-1130-AA]

    If they don't fit I may follow the lead of JuStAKId from svtperformance.com He simply removed the top of his stock SVT caps and then and mounted it onto the aftermarket center cap
