RTR WHEELS

Yes. I have a set of the RTRs. Those tires will fit.

EDIT: One thing to note. I put 255/35's on the front and 285/30's on the rear with these wheels in a hasty effort to prep for a track day. That config fit, but wasn't optimal. The 255's on the front were sorta too small and the 285's on the rear sorta too large. Just FYI.

Sure. The first two show the car with the stock springs. The last is after I put the eibach sportlines on though. These are the charcoal RTRs. What do you think?

Charcoal look great on the Blaze.

Any ride change on normal daily driving with the Eibach?

The 255/285 F/R ratio doesn't seem out of place, but I can see 255's up front allowing for too much understeer. The car responds very well to some negative camber and wide rubber. It also does well with 18" wheels. I run 285/305 on 35 sidewall.

You are correct. I had some understeer on the track before I lowered the car with this setup. But I (unintentionally) went with 255/35's and 285/30's thinking that was the OEM sizes. But its not right? The stock sizes are 255/40's and 285/35's?

Anyway, 255/35's and 285/30's don't fit really "well" on squared 19x9.5" rims so I moved those tires to my boss 302s rims and will use 275's/35,30's on the RTRs for complete square set.
 
The RTR is designed to fit all mustangs 2005+ front and rear with any brake. They Vaughn went with a 19x9.5 wheel. Sadly, your tire size is limited and a 285 is max I would go. A 275 fits just fine though.

We have a lot of these wheels in Charcoal in stock as well. Retail for $287.50 each.
