Need help figuring out which wheel this is...





At first I thought this was the 03-04 Cobra wheel but it doesnt have the indention around the lug nuts and it looks slightly wider on the spokes that the s style wheel so I can't figure out what it is. I usually have seen it on the 99-04 style mustangs but my dad bought an 06 gt used a few days ago and it has those wheels on them...

you are trippin, get off the patrone already...the gt premium wheels was the bullits, the only wheels available on the gt were the fan ones and the bullits unless im just unaware but ive never seen it, i know they came on 99 and 01 cobras because the car i took my motor out of was an all original 99 and it had those in a painted version, and we have 2 sets of the chrome ones at the shop with original cobra centercaps, im pretty sure they were discontinued when the 03 cobra rim came out

excuse kyle, he must still be drunk

Re: Need help figuring out which wheel this is...

go look at the 04 mustang brochure dude........its the same rims i'm not disagreeing with you, but its also used on the "premium" gt's (ex: katie's car, she has the same rims from the factory)


the brochure calls them "17 bright aluminum wheel (optional on gt premium)"

i know that style came on the 99/01 cobras.........and thats probably exactly what ford did, change the centercap and call them something different for the gt's

Kyle's right. The 04 GTs came with the 99-01 Cobra wheels as an option, just with a Pony center cap instead of a Cobra.

I'm not real sure on them being chrome though...her's seem to respond alot better to a polished wheel polish rather than a chrome polish.

Re: Need help figuring out which wheel this is...

ive never paid much attention to them close up but I know they polished them in 01 and 01 vs 04... the 04 shines much better so either they polished them up way more or they coated them with something.
