Eh they aren't bad looking. They are definitely different and you won't see those on many other Mustangs which may be what you were looking for. I think if they were 18's they would fill the wheel well a little better and have a a little shorter side wall. I think 17's look kind of out of place on the s197's, but that's just my .02.

I agree about 17s not fitting S197s. At a first glance, they looked a bit like the stock V6 rims but a lot nicer. They aren't bad, but I think 18s or 19s would be perfect. The style of rim is something you'd have to choose.

I'm going to custom paint my stock wheels. Legend lime on the lips all the way back inside and a billet black color in the center five star.

I was thinking of getting a brand new set. But I like different, and I haven't seen no one custom paint a set a stocks the same as the ride they came off the line with... But trust me I've seen wheels and tires I definitely would throw on.

Ya I do see what your saying. Different and original never a bad thing. And if I end up not liking it, I'll just get all new shoes. Well see though haven't really decided. But thank ill check those out.

That's what I plan on doing plus I found out the guy lied to me he told me he put a wider set up in the rear for me. while changing my breaks I found out all he did was put spacers in the rear to make it look wider
