Well - 2 things about the blade rims
1 they clean up nice & easy
2 roads in Cali are terrible & the rims hold up good

Well I guess no love for them but some good news I guess.See on ebay they sell.One seller has some listed.Has 10 available with 11 sold.Buy it now for $140.

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Ford-Mustang...e1cba5&vxp=mtr

So looks like I can probably put them on craigs with the stock Pirelli tires and maybe sell the combo($125x4)or just straight up $400 for the price off a big chunk off new set of Bullit 18x9's from American Muscle for around $150 each or If anyone has a site that I could get them cheaper.
Deep Dish Bullitt Polished Mustang Wheel - 18x9 (05-14 GT, V6) - Free Shipping

If people are buying them off ebay for $140 with $35 shipping with no tires I should be able sell them for a enough to cut a big chunk off cost of new bullit rims.I have Fords buyers and I believe they will fit Mazda's too.
Tires are in excellent condition rims are not new looking.A few normal wear and tear scratch's from being driven for 10 years.You dont notice them unless your down there cleaning rims.

My car had those. I didn't mind them but I bought silver take-off bullitts and they look WAY better. I could be wrong but I thought all GT's had them in 05 and in later years they were an upgrade.

One of the first things I want to do to my GT is change the rims out for something bigger. I think the stock rims would like much better if they were at least 19"

I dont know what wheels came stock on a 2005 GT. Split spoke or Bullit type..but when playing Forza 4 on Xbox it has a 2005 Mustang GT and stock ford rims for that car in the game are neither the bullit type nor the split spoke but these...


EDITid find this..If you scrowl down you will see wheel options for the 2005.Appears on Base GT the Bullit type was standard.The split spoke was a option
"17" Bright Machined Cast Aluminum
Opt. on GT Deluxe & Premium (64D) " I dont see anywhere where the rins from Forza 4 are shown.

Heres the 2005 Ford order guide.

Hope I'm not resurrecting this thread from the dead(!) but I bought my 05 in 2012 with the "original" rims, and kept trying to like them. But as other folks have mentioned, I was constantly trying to keep them clean; when they became dusty from the brakes or just driving it for awhile, they took on an el-cheap-o appearance to me, like the tacky old uncle wearing his 1980's Michael Jackson "Thriller" jacket to a wedding reception. My intent was to go retro, so I chose the American Muscle wheel and tire combo, and am very happy with the results. If you can keep those GT premium wheels polished, they are quite striking, but you have to love polishing!

I bought polished wheels for my Ranger (wasn't really paying attention when I ordered them), I will never do that again. They look good new, but are just way too hard to keep clean. I know driving them in the winter didn't help but for some reason the front two wheels are super oxidized while the rear two still look pretty good, I don't know if the heat from the brakes caused that or what but I'll stick with clearcoated wheels.


That said, although a 17" wheel does look a little small on the S197 due to the ginormous wheel openings, I do love the style of the Bullitt wheel, especially the ones with the charcoal center like mine are. I've looked at new wheels for it a dozen times but can't decide on anything that I really like that much more than the Bullitt wheels.

The guy I bought my GT from had done the matte black plastidip, and it looked terrible. I didn't like the stock rims much, so I swapped them with the ones that were on a '96 GT I was driving at the time. Like the tribar pony logo, and it matches the gearshift in the car. As an added bonus the stock rims actually look decent on a black '96 GT.

Edmund - We love a good thread from the dead...(Should we start making thriller references just yet? Too early?)

I'm happy to hear that you're enjoying your wheels as much as I do. Drop me a line if there's ever anything I can help out with.

Couldn't be said any better. It always took me about 40 minutes to clean all 4 wheels. Ugh. Glad those days are over! I've since swapped wheels and tires and need to sell them...they are taking up space big time.

FYI, In 2005 the machined 17" wheels were an option for the GT, Option code "64D". The MSRP on those was $195.00
