New wheels for the Bullitt

I may be getting some 18x9 & 18x10 wheels and I thought I knew what I wanted but now I've found a second option. The first is of course a new set of Bullitts, the second choice is the SVE drifts. Just gauging what others would do.

A set of black 18" staggered Bullitts your choice though.

Yeah, I think it's going to be the Bullitts. I love the black ones, but I think I'm going to get the anthracite Bullitts. I think I convinced my wife I can get them because I told her I would sell my stockers with Falken FK 452's. The tires were $130 each and they have about 600 miles on them. How much do you think I could get for all four?

I'm talking with Shane from AM right now, but I'm deciding between them and another company. AM offers a 265 35 18 and the other company offers a 275 35 18 for the front tire. I am a loyal AM customer, but the extra rubber might be a better choice.

Thought others might want to know how much staggered 18 inch Bullitts weigh with tires.

Thank you, I always liked the look of my Bullitt, but the wheels and tires were just too narrow for such a muscular body. This should give it the look I've always wanted. Yours look do look great by the way, mind if I ask who those are from? They look like the anthracite Bullitts, but seem a lot brighter than mine.

I definitely will, hopefully I'll have a chance to throw them on tomorrow. Do you know if O'Reilly's or Kragen rent torque wrenches?

Just a good reminder with wider wheels in the back be careful with curbs and turning next to a curb. If you go through a drive thru stay away from the curbs or you will rub them on accident hapoened to me drove through one and curbed my wheel in the drive thru just wasn't used to the wider wheel.

Thanks for the words of wisdom. I'll definitely be careful when parking, and luckily I don't have to worry about drive through car washes, because I always hand wash my cars.

H&R race springs. They give you a 1.5 inch drop in front, and 1.25 in the rear. Not the most aggressive drop, but I'm happy with the spring rates.
