Default Success!!! Cool wheels for 4-lug pattern on 1966 Mustang!!!

Stoked and have to share...

I got this car for my wife as a 40th b-day present a couple years ago, it's always been her favorite style car, so I started saving up for it a couple years before her birthday without her knowledge. I found this car about 6 months before her bday for a good price.. it's a simple car - 6 cylinder, manual brakes and steering, but the price was right. I got new seat covers and recovered the front and rear seats, put in a new gas tank, new door panels, dash pad, welded up the dash where the previous owner had hacked it up, new carpet, replaced the engine because the one that was in it had a dead cylinder, and most recently had the SSBC front disk brakes (power) added to it for better stopping power. I hated the stock 14" steel wheels/hubcaps... but knew that there were not a ton of options for the 4x4.5" bolt pattern on the classic Mustang.. after some digging, found out that the Konig Rewind wheels in 4x114.3 bolt pattern may work.. so I ordered a set from my local America's Tire Company store.. went to have them fitted today and everything looks great.

Details:
Konig Rewind 15x7 wheels with 0 offset, 4x114.3 bolt pattern
Tires: Falken Ziex ZE-612 205/65R15

total cost, mounted, balanced with lifetime balancing and repairs - almost exactly $1000.00

Love the look!!!

Hey, those ain't bad at all! I don't expect much from aftermarket rims, especially on a classic, but that looks pretty damn good.

Nice looking wheels. I am faced with having to buy some new wheels as the holes are ate up from loose or improper lug nuts. What does "zero offset" mean?

Offset and backspacing are related...

Here's a good website that shows how one size compares to another.

The ones I got were 15x7 with 0 offset, and 205/65/15 tires... which works out to a 4" backspace.

I have the same wheels on my 66 coupe. I have had them for a while now. Discount tire had them for $99 each back in 2010. Last time I looked they were up to $115 each at discount. Definitely changed the look of the car.
