Best looking rims in my opinion for any 99-04 stang. They handle very well and give you an aggressive stance if you get the staggered ones for the rear

Those rims are by far the sexiest imo for a 99-04 mustang. If they werent so damn expensive ($1,200+ with Nitto Tires) I would have them lol.

I'm thinking about getting 18x9 rims.
Whats a good tire size for that size? I don't mind my back tires sticking out either.

Btw what exactly does staggered mean?

It's wider rims in rear. So you put 18x9 in front and 18x10 in the back. Getting wider rear tires for traction and not hurting steering in front.

Gig'em

I had 18x8.5 rims stock on mine. I just put 255/45/18 last week. Nitto 555. I really like them. They aren't huge or staggered, but much better than stock.

I love the Nitto 555's but only get about 40k miles out of them.

Yep. I've got the black Saleens on my Termi and I get tons of compliments. Although I do like the FR500s though. Either way IMO

I don't think I've ever got 40k out of a set of any tires.

And they look grrrrrreaat!!! Love the screaming yellow too. Had it on my 04. Such a beautiful color. It would have been a tough choice between that and grabber if they had it for the 12.

The yellow is growing on me more n more. Although my preferred Termi color would be Mysticchrome !!!! The grabber blue looks so good on the new body Stangs for sure.
