Does anyone know if the factory wheels and tires off an 07-08 GT 500 would work on a Bullitt? The rear axle is the same so I am assuming the rears would fit how about the fronts?

They should fit with no problem at all.

Thats what I was thinking but I wasn't sure if there were any differences in the front strut, spindle or rack that would cause problems!

I thought that you needed wheel spacers. Maybe that is just because of the Brembo brakes.

Nope, no wheel spacers needed.

Those are only necessary with stock wheels and GT500 brakes, and most all big brake kits.

Are you talking about the guy a couple of posts down with the 27/45/18s on his stock wheels? He has photos posted with him auto crossing his Bullitt.

Yes! But they are 275/40's, not 45's I think.

That means they aren't the gt500 wheels.... ughh... perhaps he has both?! I know I've seen them on an autocrossing Bullitt!

Yes the title of the post is 275/45/18s and he mounted 275/40/18s on his factory wheels. I was looking on flee/bay and there are several sets of take off wheels from I am guessing KR builds. Some of them are reasonable maybe and I was considering upgrading my wheels. I was originally looking to upgrade to the polished Bullitts but for the same money you can get bigger tire/wheel combo!

I was wondering if anyone has a pic of GT500 wheels & tires on a bullitt? I searched and did not find on any. Should look good with 285's on the rear.

I was thinking about buying a set of the GT500 wheels for autocross. Then I could go to either 305/30 18 Kumho or 315/30 18 Hoosier. Also thinking about springs and a bigger rear sway bar. Of course that will move me out of F Stock into E Street Prepared. I saw on another forum where someone said they had 80 sets (I Think) of the GT 500 wheels with tires. Forgot where I saw it. when I find it again, I will post the link.
