Just under $7.4k, that includes stuff i have gotten for free, also doesn't include labor costs for stuff like the gears, also not simple wear items like the HPS Pads i just got.

I've owned the car for just about a year and a half and bought it for just about $7.8k lol. I haven't even ordered the coilovers from MM yet,

Alright FR500s are being sold next week, any suggestions on a decent set of 18s? If you guys happen to find a set on craigslist then I would greatly appreciate it if you let me know.

I've seen that guy posting those wheels on various forums lately, nice wheels but don't care for the price or the fact that they are black.

They are pricey!

Describe what you're looking for and I'll keep an eye out...

Preferably a lighter shade of some sort of gray, I'm not too picky as long as it's not black. The only chrome wheel I like is Saleens. I've been looking into Saleens, 10th Anni. Cobras, FR500s, XXR 531s, Varrstoen ES7s, Bullitts, and SVE Drifts. I'd prefer to not spend ore than $700 on wheels alone, if you happen to find some with tires that'd be awesome but it's not a deal breaker

Haha I think I'll pass on that, I'm not gonna go in debt for a set of craigslist wheels. If I did get a loan I'd be getting some satin silver CCW Classics.

I'm not sure if this is per wheel or a whole set, but I like these http://sfbay.craigslist.org/eby/ptd/4595439034.html

You guys have so much more mustang parts on craigslist than out here

Lol
I was only looking at the "By owner" listings.

I just called about those BBS wheels and that $499 price for the 18's is for a set of four.

Give the guy a call and see if he'll ship them to CO.

Nice find!

I always look on Craigslist first when I need something that isn't required to be brand new. Most of the large pieces of theTeksid that I'm building are from CL. Including a set of very low mileage ported FRPP heads that I picked up for $300.

That's badass! I can usually find sweet deals, but I never have the money. But this time I did, just picked the tires up and they look brand spanking new

Found another company that has a CCW Classic rep. http://www.wheelplususa.com/wheels/STR/520/Gun+Metal

I don't like their offsets though

That link isn't working for me.

I've been keeping an eye out for a used set that you might be interested in JDF but, except for those Speedlines, all of the 18's on CL in this area are BLACK!

Are you sure that you don't want to murder that b!tch out?

They would definitely look badass. Gotta mull this over for a bit, I really don't wanna try and deal with a +40 offset wheel but I don't wanna just run 18X8.5s either.

If I understand this right, a +40 wheel will be sunken in correct?

Also I just got this message

Hmmm.
Our passwords expire after 927 days huh?
Lol
I wonder where they came up with that number?!?

I know nothing about offsets JDF... Every set of rims that I own are from the factory. I let them worry about those details.

Alright so the higher the positive offset need gets, the further sunken inwards the wheel gets. That would mean I need a decent spacer to run the 9.5" wheel (which I really would prefer) on the rear

Found a way to get a +30 offset on the 18X9.5s on here. It's a bit more expensive but I can get the offset I want. http://www.carid.com/cart.php

That would probably be a better option than using spacers.

I've thought about this a lot every car I've owned. "Is it worth modding an old *** car???" And everybody tells me same thing. "**** it" lol. Your car isn't an investment, you will almost never get back what you paid. As long as you get over that fact, you can justify spending a couple hundred buck you saved for some sweet mods.

TLR Just use modding as a treat, not as an "expense/chore" You'll have more fun that way

Yes modding is fun, but I'm getting less interested in modding the car like I had originally planned when I first bought it. The other issue is that it's gonna take me forever to get $4k to buy a set of forged wheels. I definitely didn't buy this as an investment but I still don't wanna take a huge hit by selling the car for $7k with $6k worth of parts and wheels and tires

Yeah don't spend that much on just a wheel package. That money would be better spent on other things for your car, or any hefty bills you have to pay lol

Why not just go onto American Muscle website and get a wheel set for your application, even at 17x10.5 for the rear does not require spacers to have them fit. The rims they sell are fitment exact without rub. And you could get a full set of Saleens as you mentioned for around that 700 spending you wanted too. Even at 18 inch rims for that amount, plus you can get the discount code from Alex or Dan to get an additional 6% off your purchase..
