Got my new wheels yesterday.

Got my new wheels yesterday. They are American Racing Redline Shelby (silver) 18x9 & 18x10 with 255/45 & 284/40-18 Nitto 555's. I also have lower (non adj.) and upper (adjustable) rear control arm(s), drop brackets and Ford Racing springs (1 1/2" drop) at the house. The adjustable Panhard bar, the panhard rod, the A-arm bracket and the camber bolts are scheduled for delivery next Tuesday.

Re: Got my new wheels yesterday.

Don't look half bad, you might wanna get the ice off the windshield before driving anywhere though...

btw, had the a/c on in the truck today...felt good outside.

BTW the more ice you have on your car, the cooler the air in the intake, the more horsepower...........................(who cares if you can't see):smoke:

These are the ones I put on my car a little over a week ago. Staggered 20's. They bring a tear to my eye

Re: Got my new wheels yesterday.

they are definitely a hell of a lot better than the stock tires- even in the rain- but they are wider tires to help with traction also. 275 up front and 315 in the rear. I am very pleased with the Vredsteins and I took them to the track (which was my first time ever) and I really did not have any traction issues until I tried dropping it at 5000 rpm's just to see how they would do.
