Looks really good. Dark wheels always look good on silver cars!

I contacted niche and they never responded. How do you find out what size hub centrics you need? I'm sick of this steering wheel shaking.

Reposted for page 2. This should be a sticky....

90% of aftermarket wheels will need these rotor retaining clips removed so they can seat properly.

I removed them, but there's still shaking. It's really annoying to be driving and having the steering wheel shake.

Only drove it around 15 miles, but it's 90% better. All I had was the clips taken off. Much much much better. I can't decide if it still shakes a tiny bit or if I'm just used to my Cadillac XTS 4 platinum. Regardless, much better. Thanks for the help guys!!!

If there's anything left vibrating that's probably just the wheels not being perfectly balanced.

Its possible that you could damage the wheels by tightening them up to an "uneven surface" (4 points were all on a flat plane, the 5th (with clip) was raised)

The problem that I see with a lot of mustangs... people by CHEAP wheels. Wheels are literally one of the most important things you put on a car. Having GOOD lightweight wheels with good properly balanced tires can completely transform a car's handling & performance.

So many people go to a local (cheap) rim shop & buy some cheap too big wheels b/c they think they look good. But they don't realize that going up to 20+ (cheap) wheels makes the slower and handle like crap. There's a reason the new Mustang 350R has carbon fiber wheels on them... (EXPENSIVE! $10k per set ) ... its going to make it perform SO much better.

Point is don't skimp on your wheels. Also, side note but similar b/c its all about lowering rotation mass.... get a 1-piece aluminum driveshaft.

Almost all cast wheels are cheap. Forgestar and TSW are ok though. Although rotary forging isn't much better. Niche is rather cheap as well, but it's the same quality as vossen probably, just a hell of a lot cheaper in price.

I have some forged gt500 rims/tires that I'm selling that are not cheap. Very good quality. Just trying to figure out whether to sell them for $1500 or $2000...thoughts?
