It's gorgeous to me, although nothing "unique" has been done to it, really. And I still break necks when I drive by people. Haha.

Point I'm making.. Don't do things to be unique, do it because you want it!

P.S. since I got my car back to Baton Rouge, the two local yellow stands have painted theirs like mine and got the body kits, and one has similar rims now. Haha.
good points. i am getting these rims because I like them, not just because it will be different. I think i found rims that are bigger, but idk if they will fit. sorry if this is a dumb question, but what is offset? i imagine it makes a difference for what will and wont fit on my stang...

If I am correct the offset is the amount of distance the center of the wheel is moved compared to the inside lip so that you have clearance for the brakes. The offset also helps with figuring if the wheel is a deep dish or not.

Your dad is right a 19x8 will look really narrow. If you want the car to look good from the back a 10.5 is a must for rear width

A 10inch. Wrapped in a 295/35/18 is pretty mean.

Re: new rims!!

I can tell not all people like my wheels and they are 18" chrome AR Rebels and not a lot of people have them. I like them so it's all good.

Yeah just take the car to the dealership and for about 80 dollars they will set the rim size to make the speedometer accurate. Or buy a CAI w/ tune and you can change it yourself

You should be good then, plug it in and find where it allows you to change the wheel size. Boom done.
