Need wheel and tire info on this car.

Could the owner of this Mustang please PM me or post where he got these wheels and tires. This is the exact look I'm going for on my 05. Whose wheels and tires are they as well as sizes including offsets. Thanks in advance. It is in the 2005 galleries posted by AFM. (maybe posted by the administrator?)

those rims are about the only rims I would even consider swapping for my stock bullitts, they look sweet.

Ooh, ooh, Highmark, I know for a fact those are OE Concepts bullitts. The offset is that of the 1994-04 and not the 2005 +36mm offset.

Hi Torch,

O.E. Concepts does have the 18" Bullets with the correct offset in 18x9 for the '05 GT. If those are the old '04 pony's offset which is impossible to tell from the image posted, the buyer didn't ask the right questions when purchasing them.

Himark,

Call O.E. Concepts up and talk to them, they're in SoCal, I talked to them recently about the wheels they have for the '05. He said at the moment they only have the Bullets in chrome and that there will also be some made up with black centers with polished rims. 18x9 is the size you want. I'm looking for wheels with anthracite centers like the stock wheels but in a larger, wider size.

The ones in the picture do not seem to be the +25mm offset. My guess would be 18 x 9's with the 36-40 offset. I've seen posts with the older offset and IMHO they stick out just a bit too far. Crossroadzdirect.com also has them in a 36mm offset which should be perfect with 255's.

Wow - that really is a nice rim and tire set-up! I'd love to find out what size rubber he has mounted!

The dealer put these wheels on mine. It's really not my taste.
