moving to wheels section.

Real Saleen wheels from Saleen are real. Read that a couple times and let it sink in.

I dont think it really matters whether or not they are real unless you want genuine parts. If you do get replica, make sure the people you are buying from are credible.

I have heard bad things about eagle brand rims, and I think they are the ones that make the cheaper saleen knock offs. Check with AFS but i dont think they make any.

As always with ebay, check your sources. Check their feedback and do things like you are doing, asking questions.

I have had AFS replicas for over 2 years now with no problems. IMO, there is no benefit in getting originals other than to say it's "authentic" for what that's worth. I would check with them first.

that's true, my car feels like a tank with these on, I still need an alignment since my steering has a mind of its own right now!

Re: saleen rims!! please come check it out i need help

I got my Saleen knock-offs from ebay seller 'wheelindex'. Great customer service and great product. They are the ones many sellers show with the ZR center caps.

E-bay is your friend.... otherwise, Saleen.com sells sets of 4 for $40. Also, there are other sites that sell center cap sets, but they're pretty spendy. Try either MustangTuning.com or V6mustangstuff.com for starters.

I picked up a set of 4 off ebay for 35 bucks. Factory pony caps still in factory packaging.

Re: saleen rims!! please come check it out i need help

really? hmmm which pony caps fit on these saleen replicas??

I really don't want Saleen caps since these are not Saleen wheels, but if it comes to that, I'll need to buy some and have them sanded down to a blank finish

Get the mustang tuning ones.. Real Saleen rims are not worth it, especially when the quality of the knockoffs is far better... Beware if you buy from Saleen, they don't stand behind their CRAP, EVER!!!!!!!!!!!

Hmmm..
I was gona trade a guy my Bullits for his Saleens, because he lowered his car and cant turn his wheel without hitting i believe the inner fender lol..
They ARE REAL SALEEN's though, even has the FORD stamp inside the rim..

Should i keep the bullets since Saleen rims arent that great?
