I finally got some black 18x9" Redlines w/255/45/18 Nittos.It took a few weeks to get a deal done only because the 20's came in damaged and the tires got ripped up on the installation.
I'm especially impressed with the ride quality of the Nittos.

The new wheels look very nice. Black wheels need the chrome or polished outer ring like yours have. (All-black wheels are too bland in comparison.) Those wheels might look even better on a Grabber Orange stang with black stripes.

The rear view picture of your car shows why I'm not a fan of adding an aftermarket gas filler door: with the rear panel factory roundelle it looks like the car has two gas doors.

Looks good. I really like the color scheme you are running.

Is that stripe in the back silver or is that just the glare from the sun?

The stripe in the back is a color match of the engine cover.The hood is painted also.

Car looks nice. I don't see any red lines. Probably clash with the orange color, anyway.

Looks as if you guys should get some leaves for your trees. Seems a waste to have those things standing around with no leaves on them.

That looks awesome! Luv the CS appearance in that grabber orange.. Very nicely done. The whole car looks like it would have come off a lot with nothing but OEM parts, which is the way I like.

I agree w/ Travelers opinion that you're better off with 18s. I think 20s are too big for a s197 plus it makes the brakes look tiny unless you upgrade to a 14' kit.

Gonna paint those calipers orange next?

I'd go black or dark grey then but I know what you mean about the clash. The brighter blue doesn't look all that great w/ my sonic blue.

I've been pouring over which color to do mine in and I keep falling back on black, dark grey or windveil blue.

A recent thread includes referral to a site that sells Mustang color-match epoxy caliper paint. I think I've seen Grabber Orange color matched caliper opaint elsewhere; Gooooogle might turnip something.

Just for your information, the Tungsten Grey G2 paint turns out to be a dark, dark shade of purple.
