Got some Saleens

Just got staggered 18x10 and 18x9 Saleen chromes from AM put on last night... It could stand to be lowered an inch or so. I'm a little concerned about the width of the rear tires. Shouldn't the sidewalls be bulging a bit more than that?? Those are Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3... 285 in the back. 275 up front.

I need to get my windows tinted...

Got some Saleens

get some H&R supersports. Also that is the same tire size and wheels I ran on my old car in the picture. I had no issues.

Looks good. Looks like yours is a little lower than mine. Perfect stance.

Thanks! I know the Saleen style is pretty common and not really that unique, but I think they just look perfect for a new edge Mustang. Took one more, this is a good angle:

Yours looks great, the saleens are common but they look perfect on the sn95. Those were the h&r supersports on that car. They made it look great but if you go that route I'll warn you they are a very stiff spring. Also be prepared to buy caster camber plates. I had the eibach pro kit before those and I swapped them for h&r to get a bit lower. Eibach definetly rode better not as big of drop. I went with a more modest drop on my s197 to compromise between looks handling and comfort.

Hmm, I might just stick with what I have. The Eibachs are rough enough, really. They can be pretty bad on poor quality roads.
