I ordered some anthracite 17x10.5 deep dish wheels with Nitto 555R drag radials 315/35/17 and they came in today. I also found out that the factory anthracite is not the same exact color as the after market ones. So now i am waiting for my 17x8 anthracite and 245/45/R17 Nittos to come in.

The pictures kinda suck but oh well.

BTW..I am selling the stock Anthracite 17x8 bullet wheels with KUMHO ECSTA 245/45/R17 tires. If anyone is interested.

For Sale

The problem with the color match can also occur with different "runs" from the same manufacturer. I've seen pretty big differences just looking at the wheels right out of the box. Think about how hard it is for a repair shop to match your oe paint, particularly with metallic clear coats (and this is sort of what the anthracite color is).

Also, Meat,

Just noticed you're selling the GT. Hope this doesn't mean you've given up on us - or are you just clearing the way for the GT500?

-- your pictures are not big enough to suck.
I ran into the same thing - prompting my from-Hell experience going to black deep dish and all the brake-related problems I ran into.

I spent 720.00 for the rear ones and was not expecting to have to buy matching fronts, so I have spent another 500.00. I was going to order an accufab 75mm t/b & plenum and a K&N CAI on Friday! Now I have to wait till my old tires and wheels sell. I have an appointment on the 14 of Nov. to get my BBK L/T headers, BBK figh flow x pipe w/ converters,3.73 gears,shift light, and dyno tune done. I might have to postpone for a few weeks :sosad:

Well, tonight drove a really nice (QUIET & SMOOTH) stone-stock 01 GT, and in last 10 days, drove a 04 Honda S2000 (they truly rock, 240HP in a 2850lb car, 9K redline), an 01 S2000, and a ragged-on 03 Mach I. Having some decision-making problems. Can't find a decent Bullitt that's not green, and don't want to spend the money on a 03 or newer Cobra. If one of you guys see me driving a Camry, please shoot me.

Man you can't go from a 'Stang to a rice burner. hold out for a GT or Cobra in good condition.

Market watch

Meat, if you want me to, I'll continue pm's with leads - let me know if any of these suit you. Also saw a 2003 Cobra Coupe with about 40,000 miles going for $19000 (have to backtrack to find it again, but I saw it about a week ago).

- 3Black, thanks for the lead. Sure, if you see something east of Mississippi, I could look at it.

Were there any modifications required to make this rim and tire combo work? How is the fit? Is there any rubbing? I'm interested in getting an almost exact setup as yours for my 98 GT. Just wondering if I would have any fitment issues. And by the way, it looks great.
