I don't think you will have much luck with 10 inch wide wheels on the front. I have 9 inch wide wheels and that seems to be the limit (some would say over the limit, that puts them even with the wheel lip with about 3mm gap at the knuckle).

If you don't mind the wheels and tires sticking out of the fenders, then it might be possible.

Well, I assume you are looking at the aftermarket replica 17x10 18x10s for the up to 04 Mustangs? Probably not enough backspacing and a spacer would make it worse, not better. Get the specs of the wheels, mainly the backspacing, and that is a wide tire, I haven't looked at the back for clearances since I have narrow tires and mainly worried about the front.

Ok, seriously what the hell do you need that big of a tire for? Rims aside, you probly wont even be able to tuck that under the fender. Get a 275/285 - 40-18 and call it a day. You could even fit those on a 9" rim. Trust me I have played this 10" wide rear game and all it will do is end up frustrating you and/or spending a lot of money. If you want a 10" wide, talk to Cudaz101 for some of his billet options. Other than that, it's a guess and check game.
