Okay i want everyone opinion?

This is my stang I'm going to be lowering it with h&r SS AND TOKICO shocks and struts. So what wheels should I get and tire sizes everything with the tire and rim setup? Tell me what wheels would look good (pics) and what there called?

Thanks!

Kind of a broad question in what wheels u should get. There's going to be a lot of different opinions but what I would say is go with 18's to me 17's are just a tad too small. And go staggered as well but first drop it to see how low she goes

IMO, I wouldn't go beyond what your fender can basically house. Try 17s or 18s. I would also try to keep all 4 wheels same size so they can be rotated, it saves a lot of money. Measure your backspacing and post it, it'll help us point you in a direction. nice stang btw

On a side note, these Coys C-67 wheels look great on any mustang. They are very cheap too. These have a gun metal finish but the also come in chrome, machined metal with black inserts, flat black and polished metal with no paint.

Chrome FR500 are horrible in my opinion. Something else in chrome like a 18 or 19" Saleen wheel would look great or a black FR500.

I look at the Mach 5 wheel but they don't look the same cause the center cap if you look close they are like way far out almost like a knockoff cap?

Re: Okay i want everyone opinion?

I've gone through 4 sets and I think I'm up for some new rims tires too. I think I'm gonna go with some cobra R replicas in a nice anthracite/polished lip but yea FRs are nice in staggered form as are bullets. It's a tough call but after having two sets in chrome I won't go back to them because they require a lot of upkeep/polishing. Just my opinion

Look like a custom set to me. The fronts are skinnies from what I can tell which is a custom order, hard to tell the design.

I personally love the rims that are on mine. Not sure what brand though, it has a cobra head and I've seen them elsewhere but couldn't ask the owner.

Well since everybody is putting up sets of $2500+ rims, here's the set I like by CCW. Otherwise I would say 10th anniversary cobras.

I like cobra wheels because they look great, I prefer factory parts.

Almost more importantly they are simple to keep clean, looking good all the time.
