New Wheels and Tires for my '13 GT/CS!!!

Finally, without further ado. Here is some new pics that i have taken at a school down the road from my house. I just received my new wheels and tires from AM this past week. I ordered the new '13 GT500 style wheels in a staggered setup. 19x8.5's in the front and 19x10's in the rear. I'm running General Tire G-Max ULTRA High-Performance All Seasons at all four corners. 245/45's up front and 275/40's in the rear. Normally they come with black center caps, but i decided to replace them with the chrome ones that AM offers. I also ordered new TPMS sensors because I sold my '13 GT/CS Wheels as a complete package. I have to say thank you to AM, they hooked me up when it came time to switch the center caps out, and the wheels you see in the pictures below will be replaced shortly from AM due to damaged that occurred during shipping. Thanks again guys, enjoy...

Looks amazing. Cosmetically, I think it's finished. Maybe some tint, but even without it it's perfect. I saw you were thinking about getting the same spoiler in all black, but I'd keep it the way it is.

Cosmetically it's close. I'm getting my roof painted gloss black, the mirrors, spoiler, and I think I might get the roush hood scoop in black too. And yeah, she's getting tinted soon. And I'm either doing my calipers in red or getting custom covers from MGP. Then she'll be done. Lol

Thanks a lot for the kind words.

You and AM set the bar when it comes to customer service and customer satisfaction. I thank you and the company for everything you have done to help me along with my build. This definitely is not the last thing I order from AM. Thanks again for all your help and the kind words Dan.

Look at the color difference between the door and the rear quarter.

Haha sorry, I was assumed it was noticeable, but my silly self didn't see it until a sunny morning... The drivers door is darker than the quarter panel, the entire quarter panel was painted... There was no way I was gonna keep a brand new car that had lot damage and wasn't disclosed to me beforehand!!

I didn't wanna hijack this thread with my prior issue, I was just emphasizing how I love the Sterling Gray

LOL True I guess, I would really love to have the Shelby CS1. I'm just unsure about the 20 inch wheels.

Looks fantastic man, great choice on the wheels and blacked out emblems. Hope you don't mind, but I saved a few of those for my background at work haha.

Side note, but I think tints would really set it off and totally cap off the car. Just my .02 though!

That's the second time actually. It feels great to get recognized. Not that I crave recognition, but it's alway cool to get a knod from someone. Some of the negative comments on their post is hilarious.

I don't read the comments anymore because generally their are tons of uneducated people and others who just go MUSTANGS SUCK. Well why are you on a mustang page then? haha

I love the polished aluminum wheel look on my Black/Black Gt Premium - 6MT, BUT and this is a huge but, That Sterling Grey/Piano Black combination is the dog-gone sweetest combo I've seen in a while. Sterling Grey was my first choice 4ever, but changed my mind to black the last minute while ordering the car at the dealer.
Man, the black is touch love, for sure.

I love those GT500 wheels MAN!!

1. I see the tires are General Tire. What exact size GT500 wheels and tires are they.

2. Also, how is the ride ( ride comfort, road noise, on center steering feel and of
course handling. I already know the price was great, because you purchased them
from A.M.

Thanks

NEVER MIND the dunce question about what size are your wheel and tires. I jumped the gun and asked that before I read your entire post. I was just so mesmerized by those tires, I went right to the post reply section. Then I went back to finish reading it and then went back to edit my reply post, but it was too late to edit.

Whew!! Anyway, the part about that wheel tire combo is definitely true.

Love the wheel setup and the car is mint. Beautiful. I feel like ordering another 2014 just to have the sterling grey too.

I was one click away from ordering my new wheel combo package two days ago (one click away to see "Thank You for your Order" on the screen, but balked because I'm still unsure 100% as to the Wheel pattern, finish and or brand. I do know for sure that I want the larger staggered look and summer UHP tires. Very soon I will push my finger with my other hand when it's not looking to make that last click with American Muscle.

I was just reading through the comments on AM's facebook, saw you've made some more changes. Pics and a video of your new exhaust setup are necessary!
