Fr500 black wheels look good on your color car according to your picture. The TQ thrust wheels chrome would look good.

Yeah I like the fr500 but I have a different type of TQ thrust on mine over the OEM type. I kinda like the stock 2000 wheels painted black but my exterior paint is black. Mine are 18 that are on it now.

I personally like simple, 5-spoke so I got some Mach I rims (17"), but you may want to buy some look-a-likes and get some that are 9" or 10" wide in the back (I thought about it, but found some regulars cheap.) What ever you do please don't go above 18"; but all-in-all it's your opinion.
The only other rims I've fell in love with are these new Mickey Thompson SC-5's @

i like 5-spokes as well, and i when i was looking to buy my first car i almost got one with 20" rims, but the footprint was so big if you turned the wheel like an inch you were across the street. is that why you say not to go bigger than 18"? 9" wide in the back as in how big the tire is? or..?

those mickeys are definitely good looking though... do you guys prefer chrome or black on my type of color car? i might be getting a paint job to possibly a darker red in the future as well.

That's a really good looking GT though, BeautyGT. the name fits.

I say no bigger than 18" for three reasons
1. The way the car rides generally gets worse as you get bigger rims (less tire to cushion)
2. The rim hits the fender when turning; making our already bad turning radius worse
3. I personally don't like big rims on a muscle car and like a little wheel-well gap (if I could've found good-looking 16", I would've gotten them)
and yes the 9"-10" is referring to the width of the wheel (so you can get that drag racing look and better traction); you can also find some deep-dish wheels (the rear-set in the picture)
I would also advise you that when you change the rim size it's almost impossible to get the right wall-width tire (so your speedometer is correct, even though a tune will fix it)

Those other rims in southernStangs bottom picture are from the newer year models ('05-'09 I believe), even though they are very similar, they are indeed a slightly different style and I think they are 18" (the lug-pattern is the same for '94-'09; and I believe through '14)
Also, with your car color, you can pull off both chrome and black very well.

so to recap, 16-18" rims, with 10" width for traction. put deep dish on the rear wheels? like those tiny truck rims type of deep dish? where its littler rim, more tire? and what about my speedometer? if i get new rims it wont be accurate?

OP I love my FR500s. I went 17X9 and 17X10.5 now that I have them I kind of wish I had gone with 18s but I'm low enough that it doesn't matter. I purchased mine from LMR.

I think body color would look good, too many people go with black. One rim I personally love are Varrstoen ES7s, they're a knock-off of the CCW Classics and look amazing. (Note the Green car is not mine)

I'm a big fan of the CV3's... like I said in an earlier post... those are my fav rims. That deep concave design is impressive.

Did you lower your ride? If so, how much?

I'm wanting to get 20's staggared on my ride... what tire size did you go with front and back?
