I would suggest 17s because tires for 18s are outrageous. Depends on what kind of look you want and how deep your pockets are.

Usually Mustangs go with 17x8, 17x9, 18x8, or 18x9. They do make wheels wider than 8 and 9, but that will most likely be too wide and too much tire for your V6. I know all this cuz I just asked a question about 17x10.5 :cool: side note, i have 17x9.

they do make wheels that are "import wheels" (i.e. thin, like the 17x7 you mentioned) that have the correct lug pattern and offset, but imho, they don't look good. They also won't be as good for handling and what not.

haha, everybody will have their own opinion. I like mine, chrome cobra R's, not the Y2Ks. get some pics up of your car, then im sure people will offer suggestions.

yeah rims are easy to get, its the tires that are hard.. I have a set of take off 99GT rims, I like them.. I think they look better on a pre99 then a 99+..

whatcha need, opinions? 18" tires will rape you. 17s are overkill for stock suspension as it is but i'm guessing you want teh bLinG.
