Help with mustang winter wheels
Last year I purchased some steel rims from a reputable wheel dealer for my 05 V6 to cut down on the expense of doing tire swaps and to keep my aluminums looking descent. I changed the front brake pads and rotors, now my wheels are rubbing the caliper to the point that the wheel doesn't turn. A corner of the caliper also gets caught in one of the outer holes in the steel rim. However, I put my OEM aluminums on, they clear fine. The oems are 16X7, the steels are 16X6.5, but I was told that shouldn't make a difference. I took my car to a brake shop to inspect my brake job to see if I messed up. They compared my old rotor, my new rotor, and even ordered new pads and rotors from a different dealer for verification and everything measured OEM. I called the place where I bought the steels and he accused me of putting an after market system on. The steels worked fine last year, but I had about 25-30K wear on the pads. Any thoughts out there?
2005 V6 "Snow-Stang". Mad Max rims, a lil' weight in trunk, and some good sneakers....best car I've had in the snow yet!
