well every 110-120 lbs equals one tenth off your times but rotating mass is different, for simplification every 1lb of rotating mass = 10 dead weight lbs.

go find out how heavy your new rims are with tires and then subtract that from your stock rims with tires remember you have 4 rims and tires to add up and take that value and see what it is, every 12-15 lbs will be a tenth slower~

So what would you recomend buy for a stock v6 which my future plans are mac long tubes, mac high flow cats, mac exhaust system with 2 1/2 inche pipe, and a straight air shot air intake? I would think 17x8 sounds reasonable.

i think so too..

I got 17x9s, and they look better, but they aren't any help other than that to me, cuz i have no mods.

I think i will get 17s. My brother has 17x9s on his mustang and they look nice and plus he lowered his car by custom cuting his stock springs. His car has like a 2 finger gap between tire and body for car. This picture is before he lowered his car.

having white you can do what ever you wish chrome or silver all works good.
