opinions/info needed

I'm wanting some opinions and info. I am thinking of doing the mustang hub swap and getting a set of 18x9 Shelby Razors. I would like to run 275-40-18 all the way around. I know that 255's are tight up front and the 275's would be next to impossible. I thought of adding some fender flares (something stylish, not just added sheet metal) but I don't know how that would a) work with the tire size and b) add to or take away from the overall look of the bird. I don't have any recent pics posted, but needless to say the thing looks different from any other pics I've posted. Thanks for your replies.

Its been discussed in great length several times before...Thats why you have zero replies besides mine.

Some claim it works with no issues...I can't imagine that though. I would have to say NO to that setup but thats just me and my opinion. Run that 275mm tire in the rear and settle for a 245-45-18 in the front IMO...Then you deal with the rub in the rear with some bags in the springs and never look back.
