If you really like those wheels, then yes... it was a good deal. Basically. a set of wheel will run you more than $600 anyways, and factory wheels that everyone has usually aren't worth that much..unless its for a classic.
Yeh, thats what I was thinking. I did see several auctions where these wheels sold for $300. or more. Now I don't have to worry about shipping and all the other crap that goes along with ebay auctions.Fleg said:I think you got treated bad by your dealer but got what you wanted and sold your old rims for what you were expecting to get without all the problems associated with Ebay. Not to mention on Ebay if they sold for $300 you wouldn't have got the entire $300 in your hands, Ebay takes a nice chunk of that.
Are you getting those wheels straight from your dealer? I think they look great. The spinner looks cool too. Do you know anywhere else you can get those wheels. Also do they come in polished aluminum.Zrullac said:Yeh, thats what I was thinking. I did see several auctions where these wheels sold for $300. or more.

By the way, What does everyone think about the new wheels.
No, the stock wheels are different. These are a "Genuine Ford Accessory" wheel that has to be special ordered through the parts dept. I asked the dealer the same question. He said this was a 40th anniversary edition of the original bullit.bigplayrayr said:Aren't those wheels the same as the Bullitts that come standard on the GT? The only thing I see that is differnet is the spinner.
I ordered them from the dealer parts dept. They come in painted black, beige, argent (thats the color I posted), brushed aluminum, and polished chrome. You can go to this website to look at them all.TorchRedStang5 said:Are you getting those wheels straight from your dealer? I think they look great. The spinner looks cool too.

Thanks for all the help. Have you decided on what tires your going to go with?:eyepoppinZrullac said:I ordered them from the dealer parts dept.

Here is another link:
And one more for all 2006 Mustang accessories:
I don't know about the color, the catalog at the dealer and online shows the fitment for 2005 and 2006 Mustangs. The dealer is installing them so if they don't fit they will have to order the correct application. I believe they ordered the correct wheels though.alfman9 said:If those wheels are 40th anniv. wheels, shouldnt they be beige instead of grey? Also, if they were designed for the 2004 cars, sthe 40th anniv. ones, then the offset should be different.
I am going to stay with the Pirrelli's I got from the factory for now. The dealer is only taking the old rims, not the tires.TorchRedStang5 said:Thanks for all the help. Have you decided on what tires your going to go with?:eyepoppin
Not to steal the thread, but are those numbers ($200.00/$300.00) are those with or without tires? And is the 2/3 hundred for a set of 4 tire or just one? The reason I ask is I have a set of four 17" bright machined aluminum wheels, with the stock tires (only 700 mile on them) and I was wondering what I should ask for them. Thanks for any thoughts.tampa said:I'd say you got a good deal. At least on the $300. I just tried to sell my 17" bright machined aluminum wheels on e-bay for $200 and got no takers.
The dealer catalog said billit aluminum spinners. On a side note, the dealership called me the other day and said my wheels had arrived. I went over to pick them up. The boxes they were shipped in looked like they had been handled very roughly so I insisted that I inspect the wheels. 3 of the 4 wheels had been damaged so I refused to accept them. The parts department tried to give me a hard time saying appearance defects where not covered under the warranty. I said what warranty, I haven't accepted them yet so they are still ford's property. Get me undamaged wheels first. Had to get the general manager involved before parts would reorder new wheels. They should be here this week.brandobama said:The wheels look good but if the spinners are the stantard plastic you are going to be disappointed. I got the polished aluminum factory ford bullits and finally ordered the replacement aluminum spinners because the plastic spinners were just plain tacky, plus anyone walking by can just reach down and pull one off.
