My new wheels waiting for their chariot

Got my new wheels today - 19x8.5 all chrome GT500 style wheels from AmericanMuscle - Saleen Racing rims. Now all I need is a car - ETA is around 7-1.

Will try to sell the 19" Painted Luster Nickel Wheels I ordered for the car. (Just ordered those wheels to get the P245/45ZR19 tires.) Anyone want the "old" wheels?

Seems like a lot of them are ETA'd betwen 6/28 and 7/5. Customer service rep told me today that they are under orders to ship all built Mustangs by end of June. Who knows. Nice lookin wheels.

I haven't really thought about it yet. They cost me $866 extra on the new car. I think I'd like to get around $600.

I can't wait to see what those look like on your car. Make sure you post some pictures when you get your car.

What are you doing to make sure tire pressure monitoring works?

I'll use the TPMS sensors from the original wheels, which are built into the valve stems. I assume if you keep each sensor in its original location (right front, left front, etc.), they will function normally. If not - either the tire shop will know how to set it up or else take it to Ford dealer. I'm really not expecting this to be a problem.

You can transfer valve stems? How?

I'm a wheel noob.

American Muscle sells the computer programmer and also the sensors. But you should be able to have the local tire company move the original sensors over for you and program the computer. I know they usually charge a little extra if they have to do that, like 10 bucks a wheel or something.
