Wheels/tires really aren't too bad. I see deals all the time on forums I belong to. Someone dumping a set of wheels they don't want anymore and some decent rubber left on them for $400-$600 and just want them gone. Hell at those price you can find a set of used Comp 270 cams and if you install them yourself you are under the OP's $1k price point. Except for the tune...

There is nothing in my area for sale, and I don't really have the resources to install them myself.

You don't have the stock jack and lug wrench and an hour of time?

+1 to that. I bought my car with Bullitts stock and liked them at first but now I'm just sick of them. Getting my FR500s made the car look completely different so I would vote buy something other than 17" Bullitts.

I like the look of Bullitts, and considering my car is a Bullitt i should probably stick with them lol.

So this is what i'm thinking:

Front: 17x9 Nitto 555s
Rear: 17x10.5 Nitto 555r's

All of this should put me just below $1.1k which i'm cool with because i have about $1,400 to spend, and i'm definetly getting springs and hopefully window tint.
