That's a pretty good deal if the rubber is good. Even if you can't get them to work you won't have trouble unloading them. Nice find

Ok i ended up getting them. But only 2 of the rims were good and 2 tires were good. The other two were messed up badly but he still gave me all 4 rims and tires for a hundred bucks. The 2 rims that were good both had nitto tires in excellent shape almost brand new. I think it was still a good deal one good 18x10 with 285/40/18 nitto tire and one good 18x9 with 255/45/18 nitto tire.

Yup, that looks like curb damage big time. Those tires probably don't hold air. Id be surprised if they do.

Still not bad for $100. You might luck out on another set of used ones for cheap. You get those off Craiglist?

Re: 18 inch rims need help asap

I could be wrong... but im pretty sure Im not... arent 05+'s runnin a 235/55/17 and on the 99-04's runnin a 245/45/17... thus making the overall tire height a little bigger on the 05+ mustangs? i know he said 18s but when the guy bought the 18s for his 06 he still met his factory req'mts. all in all lookin at that picture... you shouldnt be rockin that much rubber on an 18 inch wheel.. your speedo will be off.
