The best 20 wheels n tires to buy

I need to buy new wheels and tires and don't know what to buy. I have a 08 mustang gt that is black with dark gray racing stripe. I like the g-fx OR 7 and g-fx OR 9. I like black rims but don't know if that would be too much black. I don't know what tires are the best to get. Any suggestions?

Re: The best 20 wheels n tires to buy

The FR500 are great looking but everyone seems to be getting them. I would want to go different and set myself apart from everyone else. You can check out this site that I am getting mine and they have 17, 18, 19, 20 in all kinds of styles and sets that include tires.

They seem to have done me well and I like the quality and service. I am waiting on them to come in, then pics will be posted.

Re: The best 20 wheels n tires to buy

there are tons of choices for every persons "style" for your car, the main thing is to figure out the budget for rims and tires and then see what you can afford and what the options are.

20s are too big. And tire selection is limited and expensive. Post pics once your done. Perhaps a petom candidate

20's on an 05+ look fine, on a pre 05 are WAY to big.

20s fill up the wheel well on anything 05+. but I also agree it is hard to find the right tire size to meet both performance and the correct look.

Re: The best 20 wheels n tires to buy

20" wheels are my next mod. I was looking at these Weld's, but I cant find them online anywhere. probably custom order. check them out. I know they would look great on your 08 STTP

Re: The best 20 wheels n tires to buy

dont pay super high prices for cast wheels~ if you start to near 2k-3k a set then you are in custom wheel territory and can get better wheels

I meant you'll lose 10 HP WITH 20" wheels. And you will instantly notice the lose in power. But you can't beat the look.

Re: The best 20 wheels n tires to buy

20" Tires are less expensive than say a 19" due to the fact that the 20" is becoming more common. I got my 255/35/20 & 285/30/20 KDWs cheaper that a set of 19" KDWs.Price will also depend on where you get them from of course.
