Thinking "out of the box" for wheels and look what I stumbled upon...

I've been looking high and low for a set of new wheels for my stang and finally branched out of the OEM replicas and found these... I think they would look incredible on the Black 99 GT with the combo of lowering springs, smoked clear corner headlights, 30mm spacers in the back, and blacked out tail lights.

The red lip would really offset it.

I think they would look mean.... hey did you get your car running yet?


Life is not just a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming: WOW.... WHAT A RIDE!!!




American Racing type 69 wheels: 18x9 front, 18x10’s rear.
Toyo 255x45x18 front tires, Pirelli 295x35x18 rear.

I like the style of the wheel, but not the red at all. CCW classics are similarly styled, and are one of my favorite wheels on a Mustang.

I think so. Car is running top notch again. In fact it is running better than when I bought it last summer. I ended up replacing the COPs with Accels and the plugs with TR55's.

lol. You guys are cracking me up. IMO as long as I could get the offset correct to line up perfectly flush with the rear fenders and throw the H&R SS's back on it would be a good look.

I think these would look good as well...

Good call on the CCW's Bullitt. Those wheels are amazing looking. They are damn expensive though. I couldn't afford them.
