Great looking ride! Wish I could find those tires in 17". I am considering the rear louvers, mainly because of the sun on the interior and I cannot find a local window tinter. Looks great on yours. Please provide installation info.

kd05gt Goodyear never made em in 17"

WinterHawk, What size did you go with? 225/60/16? my choice would have been 235/55/16.

I have 235/60/15 on my tbird now. Have the Yellow Letters also, not much tread left on them, replaced with White's, and sadly discontinued they Yellows. Saving the Yellows to ride this Summer while I wait for my Mustang
I think the Yellow letters would look nice on the Yellow Mustang.

I correct myself, The Yellows are Still made in 225/60R16 for the Jeff Gordon Monte Carlo.

Humm, thought they did make'em in 17"'s? Man, can't believe that there is a window tinter somewhere in your area, they're like on every corner around here

If you want to know about my installation of the rear window louvers, you can check out a thread over at the Mustang Source where I did a page worth of the things I ran into during installation and after:

Actually, I did go with the 235/55/16 on mine (see my sig..) I started to go for the yellow, but as you mentioned they were no longer available, then later they told me about the 225/60R16 for the Jeff Gordon Monte Carlo, but I liked the white ones better... I wanted the 285/55R/16's for the rear, but would have had to wait even longer than I did for the 235/55R/16's and I wanted to be able to rotate my tires in the future..

I have noticed MRT offers the rear window louver in 1 or 2 pieces. has anyone tried the 2 pc. do they look the same when installed, ie do connections show on the 2 pc?

WhiteHawk, how or what did you use to black out the rear, between the tail lights. I like they way that looks.

Yep, got the 1-piece, they told me about the 2-piece, but they didn't have any detaled pictures, so I was so sure about those Plus they told me the rear window louvers had a prop on the rear so you could hold the window up when ya clean it.. wrong, no prop The 2-piece was supposily made to cut down on shipping cost?

Anyway to answer your question on the rear black out on the rear, I just bought 2 rolls of 12" 3m black vinyl and put the hood strips and did the rear thing myself by hand.

I got my rolls off of ebay and I believe there is somebody sell'em on there, but I didn't see any.. but here are 2 links for them, one is the vinyl and the other is an ABS piece..

Sure are, basically same tire as the Nascar, just no Nascar/Eagle #1 on the tire. Identical tread pattern and construction

Very cool! First 2005+ Mustang I've seen with Raised White-Letters on the tires. I'll be doing this when my tires need replaced, that's retro!
