New Rims??

Hey there I'm looking to either get the same rims on my car or different ones. Which are the 17x9 grayish Bullitt rims. But I was thinking about either chrome or shiny black Bullitt rims instead. Does anyone have pictures on what they look like? It would help alot also what do you guys think would look good?

Your current 17x8s look ok in that pic. I'd say going to another set of 17" Bullitts would be a waste of money especially since those are OEM/OEM quality.

But for chrome...





Those are 17x8 OEM rims up front and 17x10.5 AM rims out back.


Same car after I switched to 18x8 up front and 18x10 out back Antrhacite AM rims.





I mainly switched because I can't stand 17s on SN95s unless you have drag tires or something. Wheels look way too small IMO but some ppl like the 17s are tires are definitely much cheaper.


If you are going to stay with 17s I would for sure just put a nice set of rubber on your current wheels and then if you need a more aggressive look you can spacer them out back with some good Max Motorsports hubcentric units. Then throw a set of these on all 4 corners and you'll have great performance for cheap. Get to 50 posts on this forum and then PM an AM rep for the 6% discount code and get them for even less. Install locally is generally $20 a corner.

I was only looking for new ones because of previous owners curb rash and the clear coat is starting to peel on front 2

One option for you would be to find a local powdercoater in your area and see how much it would cost for a blast/powdercoat. Usually its $75 per corner which is cheaper. Problem is if the car is your DD then its on jackstands while that's being done.


What budget are you working with exactly and what do you want to do? If you want to be able to rotate the tires and go for a cheaper good looking option then I'd say get a set of 17x9s all the way around from AM with the tires already on and everything balanced. Car will also handle a little better than with a staggered setup.


Something like this


Anthracite Bullitt Mustang Wheel & Sumitomo Tire Kit - 17x9 (99-04) - Free Shipping


Unfortunately that's about as cheap as it'll be unless you do a re-finish locally and fine a tire on clearance at tirerack.com or something. I've gotten lucky in the past and got some pretty good tires for like $75 each.


If you do go with something like that, for sure make sure you get the 6% off code because at that price that's like $65-$70.

Are you stuck on the bullitts or are you asking for other recommendations as well? I'm a fan of either the Mickey Thompson Street Comp 5's or the mock Mach I style paired with deep dish in the back by AFS.
If your wanting bullitts, I personally prefer the grey/charcoal ones in which case I wouldn't worry about getting new ones

Well he said his clearcoat is ****ed so he needs to get them refinished or get new ones. Like I said before, re-finishing is a LOT cheaper than new rims. One reason I'm getting the jacked up 18x9s I got on my car redone. 1-they are original Steeda Ultra Lites (Konig Villians) and 2-$75 per wheel is half of what similar wheels would cost new... and those are the Chinese AM ones lol.
