Question Info on larger wheels...

when I get new wheels, Im thinking of going with bullitts, deep dished 17x10.5 in back and regular 17x9s in front. Im thinking black would be the best for my color (dark green satin).
I have some questions though.
First, what do yall think the setup described above would look like on my car w/ stock suspension?
Second, how will the size of the wheels affect things like drivability and also track times? Would it slow down me in the quarter any?

Alriht, I think that covers most of my concern... Thanks!!

You'll look like a 4x4 with black bullitts lol. J/k man, I think it'll look pretty good.

Driveability, you will be fine around town, as far as the track...you will have a little added weight...but you will also have more traction from larger tires in the back.

Nah, with 17x9's in the front, you should be fine even at full lock and after a drop of 1" or so.

Re: Info on larger wheels...

i heard that going wider then 9 inches will weaken the hub. yea people do it, but is it really great for the hub? it may not be true for mustangs, but has anyone else heard something like that?

Re: Info on larger wheels...

**** i have x10.5 and it feels slower.. on take off.. but holy mother of pete on turns it grabs like all hell just froze over, also when its a bright, shiny and clean.. its well worth it.. haha.. as far as stock heights goes.. man.. that might look a lil funny cuz the way my car sits.. it sits perfectly, i mean the rim still looks kinda small but with my 1 inch drop.. it filled the fenderwell a lil.. but im sure if u put a 315 tires by 45 series tires on it i think it'll look cool.. but definately not as cool when dropped..

Re: Info on larger wheels...

Well, I think its about time I do some appearance mods. I have had my car now since early 2003 and I have spent about $3000 on motor mods and $0.00 on appearance.
I was looking on ebay and found alot of good deals... what do yall think about buying wheels off ebay?

such as : http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/AFS-9...QQcmdZViewItem

wow, thats a long link...

Anyways, is there other places with more reliablility that sell these wheels realatively less expensive than most? Remember, I want the rear wheels dished...

Re: Info on larger wheels...

i ordered my wheels out of a catalog and when i got them, they looked a lot different and i argued with the guy telling him they didn't match the catalog but he pretty much said whatever and couldn't do a thing about it......
the moral is i wouldn't buy wheels unless you know the seller or you've seen them in person.
on ebay they may be advertised all nice with no scratches but you might get sold the crap ones and not the perfect ones in the pic. i dunno i'm just paranoid about stuff like that.
