    I just bought a 02 Mustang and want to replace the wheels. I found a great deal on a set of 2008 split spoke Mustang wheels. How would they look on a 2002? Does anyone have this setup? Any Photos out there? The Tires on the Mustang are Brand New and I want to stay with a 16" wheel. I love the Bullitt wheels, but they are 17".
    Thanks,

    Like the Torque Thrust D's! But I can't afford $1200 for the wheels.
    Thats why I am looking at used Mustang wheels. Thanks:(

    I'm not sure how they look on an '04, but i AM familiar with how they look on 94 - 98's. I can post pics if you want. Also, I might add that the 05 -11 rim offset is a lot steeper than the 94 -04 Mustangs. So if you install these , you will need the proper wheel spacers to avoid any rubbing on the front fenders ? suspension components and the rear wheel well rubbing. I have a set of '07' GT rims that I have used on my '96 and even with 1/4" spacers on the lugs, I still had rubbing issues on both the front and back. HTye do look nice though. I have pics of both the spoke wheels on a 94-98 and also the GT rims.

    I just picked up a 2001 'barn find'. It had been stored since '07.

    Craig's List in my area has a good selection of '05-'11, factory 17" Bullitts and split mags that the racer-boys can't wait to get rid of!

    The good news for me was the set I grabbed included four good tires!

    the 235/55/R17's fill the wheel well really nicely.
