Btw how do you like the brembo's?? Plan on getting the kit sometime soon..or when I need it lol. Can't justify changing my brakes at 3500kms
Love the Brembos!

If I was to start over today with Mods, here is my ranking of things I would do first:

1. Ford Racing Recaro Seats (or buy a new Mustang with this option)
2. Carbon Fiber Drive Shaft (awesome in reducing NVH, the decel vibration is not noticeable from the Dual Mass Flywheel)
3. Brembo Brakes (or buy a new Mustang with this option)
4. Ford Racing V6 Handling kit or Eibach equivalent kit
5. Barton or MGW shifter

I think they look great just as they are. Thanx for posting these pics. I've been planning on buying these wheels for my black '09 next winter, but I really wanted to see them on a black car first. I've also thought about stripping the black paint off & polishing the insets like the pic below.

Without question the Ford Racing Boss 302S Black wheels with Machined Face as is looks the best by far, not even close. I may have to look at these to replace the Brembos wheels. Does anyone know if you can use the Brembo mustang cap with these Boss 302S wheels?

I would love to see those BOSS 302S wheels painted. I love the shape and overall vibe, but have always wished they weren't machined/black. I can relate why you'd be tempted to do it. Especially the matte gray that could look bad ass.

100,000 times over, leave them as-is! Those wheels are just stunning, as is your car. Don't ruin those wheels with powder coat or paint.

Also, I hate that you're constantly making your car more and more badass as mine sits in basically stock limbo. Just jealous...

The more I look at these wheels, the more I like them. I hate flashy looking wheels, and kind of lean towards factory looking wheels. These really look good...they're factory wheels, but not common, so that helps I think. I may have to get a set of these when I get tired of my AMR's.

I can confirm they are the same size and will fit. I didn't like the look at the Ford Racing centercaps and just transferred the ones over from my Brembo wheels. Compare pick from my old wheels below to the OP's with the white Ford Racing cap. Looks better with the black pony cap IMO.
