Re: new to the forum.. i have an opinion question

Welcome to the site man. I too have an 02 white v6, and just bought some chrome fr500's for it. Why chrome? Well...my roommate has a white z28, and the chrome wheels just seem to set his car off well.
I used to want darker rims, and if you go with a darker rim, I'd recommend black.
The 95 cobras are overused IMO, so I'd either go with the 03 cobras or fr500's.

Re: new to the forum.. i have an opinion question

I'd personally go with the anthractite. They just look really cool on a white car for some reason.

Re: new to the forum.. i have an opinion question

17x9 work fine all around, just run 275/40/17 tires on that size rim REGARDLESS OF WHAT ANYONE SAYS EVER unless its on a 2005+ mustang which you dont have. Tires should be 100-130 bucks each (I love yokahoma avs es100s good price good tire dont buy kumos!)

Ford & Ford Racing Performance Parts - GEFRacing.com has some wheels you can look at as well~ they are a good company from my dealings.
