have you tried AM or some place like that for a set of drag wheels. i know racestar has the polished wheels and a black chrome finish wheel. jegs or summit racing has different selections of the drag wheels. i personally aint a big fan of painted wheels on a mustang other than the black, silver wheels and the white bullitts and white cobra r's aint bad either. if you wanna see what they look like just go to tirerack they have a app to see wheels on the car also

what are you wanting out of your tires after they are installed? like what purpose do you want DRs on drift wheels...is this for a certain type of track use, or just street. that can really help determine the best combo

I put some old rims and tires I bought for $40 on the back of my stang. I wish my suspension was better they rub ALOT! Dual-exhaust would also help it.

what wheels are those? the back spacing looks way off...suspension isn't your rubbing issue i'd assume...it's non rolled fenders with tires that stick out that's the culprit..

There US indy mags. I looked them up on EBAY and apparently there like $400-$600 for all of them.
I could of got all 4 for $70 in "usable" condition.
It might be the back-spacing, but I'd say it's the very soft and very old suspension. It hit the bottom of the bumper going into a the gas station at like 3mph, now I stop completely and slowly until the bumper passes.
It also squats down on the back wheels when ever I give any gas, along with a broken drivers seat that leans back a little when I give it gas(makes it seem like it's going a lot faster lol).
currently I have the stock rims on until I get stiffer suspension.

if you like that wheel style you might want to think about getting the proper back spacing. they' work alot better for your bump issue. just an idea

I kinda like how they stick out though. Maybe I should get some wider wheels(12-15inch) that have the perfect back spaceing.
OH and what is the proper size back spacing I should get.

Dude, ya I called you Dude. Lol.
You need to fix that wheel spacing.
Like 1slosix says, that's the culprit.
Also looks hideous. Kinda ricerish too.
Tuck them wheels back in where they are suppose to be
