I haven't decided silver or anthracite (gun metal)... but probably silver.

If you have to go with 17s the 03 cobras are the best, the other two are played out. Look at the wheel/tire section I have pics of EVERY popular rim and most in all thier finishes!

thanks for the photochop, that really helps... I don't like the 03 Cobra's much at all.... it really isn't much of a change from the v-6 rim... or maybe it's just me so the 03 Cobras are out.... also, I think the Y2K rims only come in 18".... and I don't want 18" rims, lol.... with the amount of driving I do, and in the weather I do it in... those would be bent up before next summer.

hey jimmy i loe the car with the ghost flames added makes it look pretty bad. Honestly with the silver and ghost flame look on your car, And good set of rims that would go with your paint scheme would prolly be the 2004 mach 1 rims. I have the sonic blue color and they make car stand out and look diffrent from everybody elses mustangs running around columbus, GA. lol. Also chrome is gettin too over rated with all these eruo ricers gettin into it, but i also think the silver powder coated cobra R's would look pretty nice on your car.
