Bullitt rims

Anyone have some where to look for bullitt rims that are silver for an 02 v6. I'm not a fan of chrome. And I'm iffy about anthracite look on the car. Just wonder if anyone knew where to find silver finished bullitt rims

Or does any one know if rims for an 05 will fit an 02? American Muscle has the bullitt rims with the clear silver finish I'm looking for, just not the right year

The lug pattern is the same but I think the offset is different. You might need some spacers to make them look right.

I jst compared the specs between the bullitt rims for 99-04 and the specs for 05-09. Everything is the same except for back spacing.

Back spacing:
99-04= 5.72" (145mm)
05-09= 5.68" (144.3mm)

Do you think that little bit will be a big deal?

+1. They will fit but they will look sunk into the fender wells. American Muscles anthracite Bullitt wheels look more silver than other aftermarket Bullitt wheels. I have LMR Bullitts and they are a darker grey. Here is a comparison of the stock vs LMR Bullitts.

I have talked with a few people who have put 05-up wheels on an SN-95, and they all think they look horrible without spacers. I haven't seen their setups in person though.

So do you think if I buy the 5mm spacers from AM they will look normal? I also read, having a smaller back spacing than recommended can increase strain on the hub and suspension. But do you think with that tiny little bit of a difference will really add that much more strain?

I'm not a big fan of using spacers, plus the newer Bullitt wheels don't have as much of a lip and I don't think look as good as the 2001 Bullitt wheels. I would wait till you find the correct offset Bullitt wheels, I just sold mine for $500, with Falken FK 452 tires w/ 600 miles on them on Craigslist. A deal will pop up.

Definitely agree!! I love wide tires in the back, just looks mean. I have 17×10.5 on mine. 315 tire but I'm thinking about seeing if a 335 will work next time I get tires.

Do you get a lot if spin from them? Think they'd be good for drag strip racing?

They aren't the grippiest tire. But Nitto makes the Nitto nt555R, which would give you much better traction for hard launches. I autocross with my nt555's, and they are a good middle of the road performance tire.
