put gt500 rims on my 2011 gt

I have been shopping for rims for my 2011 GT for next spring and I always liked the GT500 svt performance package style. Well a guy in my mustang club had them on his 2011 GT500 for only 350 miles before he took them off and went with a set of shelby rims. I got the whole set with the original goodyear eagle F1 supercar G2 tires for 2000.00. They even had the TPMS sensors in place. It was a simple bolt up and go. The computer didn't even know the difference. I think they really look good with the kona blue. I had the 19" wheels from the factory before switching to these. I love the 285 out back and 265 up front. Much meaner looking than the wimpy 245 stock ones. I would shred those easily. What do you guys think?

Thanks. I might drop it in the spring. Yes the pic close up is of the front right side. I really like the wider tires look all around. I am going to stick with the 285/35R20 in rear and the 265/40R19 in front.

Nice wheels, I'm looking to get black on mine, just trying to figure out which style to go with.

Check out the SVE form latemodelrestoration. They look basic just like the RTR's but are a lot cheaper.

I like the 'wheels'. If they were 24"-then they would be, 'rims'..

Re: put gt500 rims on my 2011 gt

before you spend 2k on just rims though there are better routes to go rather than just OEM Ford style~ but 2k with tires is a good deal.

I really like the oem wheels. I had been looking through all the wheels on tire rack, American muscle, etc. and I like these the best. Very good quality too. They were worth every penny and then some. The wheels alone are 500 a piece while the tires run about 400 a piece.
