Well when it was all stock it went 12.52 @ 114mph with 1.979 60' on stock Pirelli Pzero-Nero tires going through traps in 5th gear. That was on a 93* humid day eith no cool down So buy changing to the RTS I saved 90lbs, plus I removed spare tire and jack, front swaybar and installed lighter radiator support bracket. I also installed BMR lower control arms Bassani Race axle back, Barton shifter with 2-post bracket. Now Im waiting on my DSS 1-piece driveshaft and SCT programmer to arrive. I already have a Lethal h-pipe and Steeda CAI waiting to go on once the othet parts show up. Hopefully with all those mods and cooler weather, I hope to see 11.5's.

Did they bolt right on or did you have to use the BFH on the rear inner fenders?

Bolt right on. No modifying or persuasion of any kind. Just had to install swaybar relocation brackets. That's all.

Cool. What offsets? I'm coming the LSx world so these are all new for me to learn.

I have the same wheels on my car with M/T 275/60/15 drag radials. There is a ton of space between the tire and in inner wheel well. The closest thing to the tire is the bump stop bracket. Guys have used a air hammer to remove them for more clearance. I swear, with the right backspace, you could fit a 12" wide slick in there. haha

Any issue clearing the Calipers in the rear? Or do the RTS offer the clearance the other 15" aftermarket wheels don't offer.

They have three different mounting pad heights for the RT-S wheels. There is a "high", "medium" and 'low' pad height. The rears need the medium pad height. The fronts with the "high" pad height clears the Brembo brakes. Weld's website has an application chart for Ford HERE. Very easy to read and understand.
