bullit oem rims

I think I have bullit oem rims. they have the cobra center caps, and they are staggerd. i donot know what the exact size of them is, is it 17 x 8 front 17x 8.5 in the rear? I dont know the specs on them any help.

2nd thing is i want to sell them what is a good price? i looked on ebay, but have not really seen ones like these on there? I think they are for the 05.

Re: bullit oem rims

if they are 05+ they are 17x7.5 and will fit pre 05 but only with spacers. A good price would be 150-200 without tire if no curb rash.

If they are pre 05 they are 17x8's

also note the rules for posting classifieds, you have to have a post count of at least 100 but you will be there before you know it.

Incorrect..

05+ Bullitt's are 17"x8" just like all previous models...The issue is with the offset...The 05+ Bullit wheels have a +45mm offset...But you are correct that 05+'s will fit previous models with wheel spacers...Previous model bullit's will not fit 05+'s...

Re: bullit oem rims

they have a 235 tire that budges over the edges I dont see how an 8 wide rim would work on the base level bullit looking wheel with only a 235, it wouldnt show over the edge of the rim..

Re: bullit oem rims

Sure it could...Two 235 tires aren't the same tread width...The Pirelli Pzero Nero probably has a slightly wider tread than other 235 tires...You can look on tire rack & see what the actual tread with is for those vs. other tires...What might come up short of the edge for one 235 tire won't come up short on another tire...

In any event, the 05+ bullit wheels are 17x8's...I know this because I bought a set of Enkei Racing wheels that had to meet factory specs within +/-5mm offset to maintain legal for SCCA stock classing rules...Of course I run a 275/40 Hoosier R-comp on them so I have a lot of sidewall bulge

*Edit*

FWIW...

Wow I feel like I just received a tire/wheel education. I hope BaginDVS1-got the answer that he needed.

Re: bullit oem rims

the best thing i could do is show a pic of them. yes the there is pirelli pzero neros on them, the front, but there is bf goodrich kdw on the rear. the only thing is this, the rims on the front are not as wide as the rears. the rears are dished out about inch and some it looks like. 235 front, 255 rear. they are staggerd.

Not trying to be a jerk but, 235 is the width of the tire in millimeters (not necessarily tread width). There are 25.4 mm in one inch. Therefore the tire width in inches is 235/25.4 = 9.25 inches. On an 8" rim I think it would bulge a bit.
I measured my stock 235s and they are 9.25 inches from outside to outside. Oh, and they bulge a bit.

Re: bullit oem rims

Tire discussions are always a headache.

For this lesson we have a tire: 235/55-15

235 - width in millimeters, from widest point sidewall to sidewall, not necessarily tread width
55- aspect ratio, % of width that is sidewall height from rim to tread
ex. 235mm x .55= 129.25mm
15 - rim size

The letters in tire sizes denote construction and speed rating, and have nothing to do with its size.



I know most of you know this, but its easier to just put that out there because some people have just never been shown or were taught wrong growing up and are just going to get confused.


Yeah I know that we aren't even all discussing the same thing in this thread but I was bored.

Re: bullit oem rims

I do know one thing, you have to reduce the price because you have now used them. Doesn't matter for how long. they have been used. Second thing is more scratches and dirt on them plus if you decide to keep the tires off them less money they worth. Plan and simple. I have been there and done it.

Re: bullit oem rims

generally speaking ford wheels/tires are much cheaper than other brands~ which is good for aftermarket

Re: bullit oem rims

That appears to be a set of Wheel Replica's "deep dish" black bullitt wheels. I had a set on my MaCh1 when I purchased it-sold them to a dood with a black GT for 400.00-with tires mounted-after I installed the OEM MaCh wheels back on the car..
