What is the best place to look for new wheels and tires?

Looking to upgrade my wheels and tires on my 2003 gt. Any suggestions on where the best place or site to look? Been to American muscle and late model restore already. Google it and just seeing if you folks are familiar and trust certain websites and dealers with past experience. Thanks

american muscle is a good place, but since your from louisville and i'm only 30 minutes north of you, look on louisvilles craigslist, they have a pair of cobra's for 450 with decent tires or, offer me a price on my cobra r's...lol.

Do you have a rim and tire dealer around you? If so, check them out to see if there's anything you like. Check out the links to the dealers on the right of the page and you can check out these places too:

Hope that helps!

Bought a set of black Bullitts with Sumitomos (as a package), center caps, and lug nuts from Late Model for my '02 and was very impressed with the whole process. I wanted a different (but close to equivalent) tire than the kit called for and they switched them in and matched the price for me. Give them a call, you actually get to talk to a person and they're great to deal with. They know their stuff regarding tech questions and are willing to work with you.

American Muscle has a big selection. They will even price match if you find them cheaper somewhere else.

+1 to working with American Muscle... best company out there and shipping even on wheels and tires is FREE!! they have the best known customer support and chances are would swap tires on a tire/wheel package just like late model but do it at a better price with no doubt in my mind... i have looked on Late Model for a part, then went back to AM for the same exact part on more than a few occasions only to find that the AM part was cheaper and came with free shipping

American Muscle all the way without a doubt!

(unless of course buying used from craigslist) u get the best deals there, but deal with the chances of curb rash or someone who didnt clean them often enough and have stains from brake pad material like my wheels
