Installed new rims from American Muscle

Got my 18 inch matte black bullitt rims from American Muscle. Within three days they were here. Had my local Ford dealer install them along with getting an oil change.

WOW, what a difference a set of rims make. They look great and the car drives great also. Fast shipping, great looking and great price.

OP, don't forget to wipe your chin when youíre done...

I don't speak often but when I do, I don't have clue what I am talking about. I just repeat things that I once heard and do not repeat them correctly... My doctor told me it was an ID 10 T problem and it was incurable.
So when I reply to a post or add to a thread I just find the words elsewhere and copy and paste.

They weigh 22lbs..not bad! OP they look great; no fitment issues? I thought I read somewhere that spacers were required to clear the front brakes on 2011+ GT's. If not, that's good news and a smoking deal.

Really? I thought the standard brakes were a little bigger on the 2011's than my 2010, and those wheels just barely clear my 2010 brakes; there is like 1/8" clearance between the callipers and the wheel spokes.

Anyway, yeah they look great on your car, gotta love the "modern classic" look of the bullitt wheels on the S197 car!
