The biggest thing is there just 17x8 and replicas for a wider tire never look right so most Mach owners get something else

No way. Your cobras are worth more. IMO, unless you really want them bad, I would let these go by. They are 17x8's and they aren't anything special. I prefer the after markets because you can get them in 18's and deep dish, which makes them look proper bad ***

Would mach one wheels look bad on a 2005 mineral gray v6? I have a black 2000 v6 that I'm planning to sell and don't know if to leave the Mach one wheels in the 2000 or switch them to my 2005 v6?

Meh. I personally find that thin spokes and 17inch rims look bad on 05+ mustangs, but that's just me

That's what my gut feeling was (keeping mustangs original)
Is yours a 2013? how much did you get it for?

2014. I don't mind modding, but 05-14's look nicer with something 19-20 inches and 9 to 10.5 inches large. The stance is more aggressive and yeah we also have deeper wheel wells, so you have to be careful to look at what offset the rims you want have. I'm happy with my brembo rims for now, but I know I want to swap me out for something else eventually.

Idk how much you got your pony, but do you think this is a good deal? They let me borrow it for the weekend to make up my mind to see if I like it or not

Hmmm. It looks nice enough. Not sure what prices you should be looking at for a 6 banger premium cause I didn't really look into them. Seems like a fair price. Is that really what you want though? You can't be too far off from a nice 5.0 liter?

I test drove a 2014 5.0L with only 2 miles on it but can't afford at this time, so I have to pick the next best thing. All the 5.0L around me Cost over 25k and have over 36k miles on them and none them have leather seats nor the gaugesand inside lighting like this one

True that. My uncle has a nice v6 premium. It's all the style and comfort of the GT , which is nice because its something that you couldn't get with 99-04 v6's. they would give you leather and stuff, but there was always a noticeably large gap in quality. The 5.0 is just so much god dang fun man. The 3.7 just doesn't cut it in the end. You're only a half year or a year savings away from a 5.0 . Plus with the 2015 year models coming closer to being unveiled and purchasable, you're going to start seeing some 2013-2014 mustangs new and used going for dirt cheap. I got a really great deal on mine. It was during a sales event, but ford was responsible for the large savings. The dealership bought the car for way less than they usually do and sold it for cheaper to stimulate sales and interest for the last year of the s197. Anyways, just think about it

The wife and I currently drive 2005 v6 & a 2000 v6 and this guy offered me a good price for the 2000 which is really beat up and has 158k miles so for that reason I'm looking for a v6 bc 6 months from the 2000 is not going to be worth as much. It has power steering leak , bad paint, and a bad wheel bearing.... I can always buy a gt from the 2015-2019 model after I pay this one off , plus were in our early 20s so insurance is also going to go thru the roof.

So am I man. 24. It's all good man, I know what it's like. I had a v6 once, but once you go 8 , you never go back. When I was shopping for cars, I figured I couldn't afford the v8, so I didn't bother looking for the v6. If I couldn't get it with the 8, I didn't want it at all. In fact, I had accepted that my price range would get me something nicer at Nissan. If I'm gonna settle for 6, might as well be a really good one. I had a boner for the 370z. Turns out I got my gt for a bit less than a 2013 370z, and mine has waaaaay more options. The only thing I don't have is the California package.

I can't judge him though. To some people, that kind of thing isn't worth the extra money. Even though its really hard for me to justify the v8 seeing as I don't plan on racing it and or I don't live anywhere close to a race track, I just knew I wouldn't be happy without it and ....**** it I had the dough for it lol.

This is my 4th v8. I've had three 4.6's. 1994 thunderbird, 1997 Lincoln town car and a 99 mustang gt.

I love when people ask me if its expensive on gas. I say "yeah, but if I cared about gas prices I'd be driving a moped lol"

Well uhhhh... I honestly believe that section would give him better answers than posting it in the general wheels and tires section. People with NE's know more about out types of wheels that someone with an s197. Lets face it who puts a mach1 wheel on a non NE?It's not too common. I've put questions up in the general section and they never get answered, but I post them in the 99-04 and I get an almost immediate answer. But that's just my opinion I guess it's mods discretion.

On a sied note, I've seen them on a fox (5 lug conversion of course) and it didn't look too bad. Same with the 35th anniversary stainless rims!
