Do you wanna be able to rotate them or would you be more interested in a staggered look? You could do something like 18x9 all the way around or do 18x8 or 18x9 front and 18x10 in the back? Just a thought

I'd like to have that wider back tires but could that cause some kind of problem in the future?

I'm unaware of any problems it would cause. The only thing keeping me from it is not being able to rotate the wheels.

Hey My first mod was the antenna, the blackout tje lights then rims and tires. Since I have added a true dual exhaust, coyote smoked tail lights and tje plug in sequential tail light harness.

The antenna? You mean removing it or something? The suggestions here are giving me good ideas as to what I want it to look like at the end thanx

Hey. You were asking for suggestions and I gave you a bunch of mods that I did. As for the antenna I took away the long factory one and put on the short 12 inch antenna. If you have the money you should get tires and rims first. Depends on what look you're going for. I have a screaming yellow Mustang so I blacked out everything. Including the rims.

I just added the CAI and dual exhaust. Getting tuner soon.
I went with the exterior mods first.

Well I put in an aftermarket stereo and use my iphone for music so I really don't have use for the antenna. As for money I'm 19 and I'm working to pay this car off so I'm on a budget lol sucks I'd like to just buy everything at once but that would take the fun away
