Thumbs up Baby Got Her New Shoes

On Monday I ordered some Raceline GT wheels and Toyo T1R tires for what my wifes says is my 'Baby". I was told that Raceline was going to have to build the wheels due to the off set the 05/06 Mustang has. It would take about a week for the rims to be ready and that I would get them installed on the 31'st.

Rim and Tire Info

18X8 front rims with 255/45R18 Toyo T1R tires

18X10 rear rims with 275/40R18 Toyo T1R tires

Raceline GT wheels with black powdercoated spokes, polished rim lip and polished center cap.

Well that all changed late Thursday when I received a call from the shop (Inland Wheel Center of San Bernardino, CA) that my wheels and tires were in and ready to install.

Well today Baby got her new shoes put on. I took in the car this morning and a few hours later I picked up a whole new car.

The tires and wheels look great and the car handles like a dream with the extra rubber on the road. I had to relearn how to drive the car in that it turns on a dime and the rear grips like superglue on the road. :thumbsup

Only thing left to do now is repaint the calipers yellow and lower the car a bit.

Heres some pics of the car before and after the install.

Thumbs up

So envious of you right now!

I want to get the 17x8's and the knockoff spinners but I dont know what rim color would look good on my redfire

IMHO the rims and knockoffs are just enough retro and "now" that it accents the new 05/06 mustang perfectly!:thumbsup

I would go with a polished look on the wheel.

Looks awesome Dave, I've seen a few of the Raceline rims in magazines and there are a couple of them I wouldn't mind either, but can't do because I too just put on a new pair of shoes Monday as well.

Those really don't look like 10 inch rears. More like 8. But I'm just going from that last pic.
