Who runs 255/50/17's (or bigger) up front?

What year MN12, and what tire width are you running up front?

I remember that there was an issue with 92 and older spindles for putting on Mustang wheels, maybe my tires not fitting in the width has something to do with that.

So, if you're running them, how'd you do it?

89-92 and 93-97 have different spindles. You have more room for a bigger tire with the 89-92 spindles, but I'm not sure why ford changed the design in 93.
